YES!! It's my favourite game series too!! And many many people don't even know about it, let alone understanding the source of inspiration of this character! *_*

Not so fond of the autocrossbow concept but the pic is nice.


I thought about this concept for a while - my campaign is magic-punk, Eberron style. This autocrossbows are like the modern composite crossbows with the bow replaced with an underbarrel rotating mechanism which acts both as a kinetic storage and rotary magazine.

The standard D&D autocrossbow is an exotic weapon, I simply adjusted it to be a simple weapon and to have a hand version. They now replaced most of the bows in my setting due to the advantages and simplicity.

Storywise they have been created by a joint idea between the Gnomes (always fond of strange mechanisms) and the Dwarves (the only ones with the skills to make the Gnomish idea work), brought far and wide by the humans - who we know to have the uncanny ability to recognize and abuse the most lethal objects around. Also in this setting Dwarves and Gnomes have overlapping territories, embedded in a (now) mostly human continent so it makes sense.

I also created 4 versions of the autocrossbow: the one-handed (Defender), low damage, low reach, 3 shots; the civillian two-handed (Hunter), light crossbow damage, light crossbow reach, 5 shots; the military issue two-handed (Trooper), martial weapon with slighlty higher damage than the civillian one, longer reach, 3 shots; the exotic Beesplitter, with an astonishing reach and heavy damage but heavy, costly and with only 2 shots.

I'd like to be able to draw them with Inkscape but I'm afraid I'm a bit of a klutz in any kind of drawing...

Yeah well, let's just say I'm old school. Except in a supers setting and for superhuman characters I like it grim, gritty and down to earth. Autocrossbows are over the top to me. ;)

Now let's change the tone, let's put on a cape and some spandex and you have my attention. :) But I'm pretty sure that wasn't your intent in this case. ^_^

Ah no, as you can see from my characters I'm definetely a High Magic person ;P leaning towards Eragon, Harry Dresden... way more magic than LOTR, which is and will always be in my heart. ^_^

Like I said, I like high magic, provided you're playing Dr Fate/Strange ;)

Otherwise, yeah, I'm more of a Conan guy, and in my fantasy settings, sorcery is evil and unreliable. :)
