Futuristic Weapons

Maybe you want to have an accurate representation of blaster weapons for your Expedition to the Barrier Peaks adaptation, or maybe you are like me and find that Dungeons & Dragons needed more futuristic weapons if you run a Dragonstar campaign in the future. In either case, you need more guns than the Dungeon Master’s Guide can currently provide.

With a little work and comparison, here are the futuristic weapons for your D&D game!

Designer's Notes

My intent was to create a usable table of futuristic weapons in case I ran a 5th Edition Dragonstar campaign with my gaming group. The amount of work to adapt the entire setting (specifically the technology) was more than I wanted to take on at the time, but I did not want the work to go to waste.

The rules are not playtested. Please feel free to leave a comment on comms.visionary.ca or reddit user /u/Palladion.
