Eccentric Gunsmith Prestige Class

"Hokey religions and magic spells are no match for a good pistol at your side..."

Eccentric Gunsmith is a new prestige class, combining elements of the great Pistoleer from Van Richten's Arsenal and dipping a bit into the bizarre Black Powder Avenger from Heroes of Light. The idea was to create a firearm based character that was less focused on training to shoot the firearms, and more on designing and building new and exciting firearm contraptions. A more Rogue-ish, and less Fighter-ish Pistoleer.
