The power level of Firearms

The damage levels of firearms have been reduced, compared to One D&D. This is done to keep the damage in combat consistent and compatible with feats and abilities from D&D.

Weapon Properties


When you roll a critical failure with this weapon, make a DC 15 Dexterity Saving Throw. If you fail, deal your weapon’s damage to yourself.


When dealing damage with this weapon, it always deals non-lethal damage.


A weapon with the magazine property has a limited number of actions, bonus actions, or reactions you can use to attack with it before it is required to reload, regardless of the number of attacks you can normally make. A weapon with the magazine property takes one round to reload.

Firing Modes

Single Shot (SS)

A firearm with the the Single Shot property can only shoot one shot each turn.

You may use the Double Tap attack action. Roll an extra damage dice, and remove the lowest result. The attack uses 2 ammunition.

Armor Properties


This armor protects against bullets. Normally when you are attacked any AC from your armor is not used when you are shot at. Any limitations to Dexterity still applies.


Some armors have abilities you may use once between long rests. If the ability has the recharge features, you may use an action to recharge it with a battery Pack to gain another usage of the ability.

Armored Clothing

A discreet and lightweight type of protective gear. It is designed to be worn under clothing and provides minimal protection while maximizing mobility. It is ideal for stealthy or agile characters and allows the wearer to move quickly and freely in combat.

Concealed. This armor is concealed and cannot be seen as long as you are wearing clothes over it.

Armored Suit

The discreetly armored suit is famous among corporate employees and fixers seeking stylish protection. It comes with a concealable holster for carrying pistols.

Hidden Holster. Wisdom (Perception) and Wisdom (Insight) checks to see, find, or locate your holstered pistol has disadvantage.

Chameleon Suit

The chameleon suit uses an intelligent ruthenium polymer coating and sensor suite to blend in with the surroundings and offer protection.

Chameleon (Recharge). You may activate or deactivate the suit’s chameleon functionality as a bonus action. When you activate it, it becomes partly transparent for 10 minutes, and you gain advantage on all Wisdom (Stealth) checks. You can use this feature once each day.

Executive Suit

The executive suite is a high-end outfit worn by corporate executives and politicians. Made from advanced materials, it offers lightweight protection and a force field to protect you against assassination attempts.

Shield (Recharge). As a reaction, you may activate an invisible force barrier. Until the start of your next turn, you have a +5 bonus to AC. When used the armor needs either to recharge for a long rest or power can be transferred from a battery pack as an action.
