Gunblade FFVIII (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

We all remember how awesome it was to play Squall in Final Fantasy VIII but i felt that the heroic actions to replicate his interesting weapon was indeed a fail. What gunblade would deal 1d4 as a medium slashing weapon? if anything this monstrosity should be treated as a Revolver with a longsword blade attached... which is exactly what i did to the page. In the DMG1 they had a blurb about d20 moderns "modern day" weapons... so using the revolver statistics and adding on a longswords slashing properties made this weapon somewhat more bearable in my mind. Any ideas on how to fix the Auto Trigger capability from the game short of a 5% lucky shot would be helpful. Perhaps rolling a d20 on the side and having guessed a number between 1 and 20 as to whether you successfully pulled the trigger, but only on a declared attack?
