Basically what the title says, since there are Gunslingers in 5e D&D (Which I had no idea there were cause I'm not very knowledgeable about D&D) can we create on in-game? I recently finished Steven Kings' The Dark Tower series and would love to make a character that's part of that world.
Good job finishing the series; 'Oy was def my favorite character
Smokepowder definitely was used around the time of the events of Baldur's Gate 2 and into the timeline that encompasses BG3, but mostly in cannon or arquebus form. Gunpowder doesn't actually work in the Realms (thanks, Gond
) and guns remain pretty rare and rather unreliable because smokepowder is a bit more nitroglycerin-y and a bit less gunpowder-y with regards to its volatility.
Doesn't necessarily rule it out, though - just probably makes it a bit less likely to make an appearance. I'd be down with a pistoleer or musketeer class, for sure
