  7. Yeah this is a great idea I would love to see a chaos oriented evil side of the dwarves.

  9. I like it, honestly these jerks need to realize your arguments are very true. This is easy to accomplish, but let me help you out. Only you or the people you teach can make then. They must be LT approved and the LT must oversee you making them. You need to have an app made by the LT to make them. There is a five second interval between reloading and firing. The crossbow has a -3 on all rolls for accuracy. The crossbow would be difficult to carry and heavy, so only dwarves, uruks, some humans, and the odd elf can carry it. Add this in and I believe it'll be an accepted thing. The lore team are only jerks to me, not you! ^^^ this guy is my hero. Lots of encouraging words great advice and optimism. I will try to reform it when i have a chance to thank you for the great input.
  10. I am not trying to make a hand held ballista in fact this design could be as small as the gears and teeth would allow. you could make a version that a halfing could carry albeit it would not shoot as much and the bolts would be very tiny. and if you read what i stated above a cross bow that size would need to be wielded by someone immensely strong otherwise it wouldn't work. No I would ever make a crossbow that big it would just be stupid its a regular dwarven sized cross bow that shoots bolts at a higher rate than the average crossbow and bow in a short amount of time at the cost of its heavy weight and large ammo containers that make moving and transporting it loud and awkward. As well as the weapon requires one to be resting on a solid as shooting from the hip would be incredibly hard to do not to mention inaccurate. I would like some helpful ideas like hey overlord8000 how about you reduce the amount of ammo in the weapon so that its not a minigun.
  11. This isn't edgy its not supposed to be a room broom but more of a support role for monster hunting teams or lone guards men being raided at 1am in the morning when the entire city has gone offline. and it fits perfectly with our current technology level. It just needs some revisions to be what it needs to be and saying no no no doesn't really help me out all that much. Any advice on balancing the current idea would be greatly appreciated I feel the idea itself mechanically is solid and well founded but any clues on how to make it server appropriate would be helpful.
  12. This is not based on the ancient Chinese weapon except the ammo holding compartment and noted I am revising it to state that it does not have any sort of way to accurately aim it. also I removed the poison part as that doesn't make a lot of sense looking back at it. and this weapon would be to large and loud to sneak into any area without getting caught. You cannot not walk into a room and unload on people like a hit man this weapon requires to be mounted on a solid surface and requires a lot of strength to operate.
  13. Noted And it's actually a very loud weapon Ill revise it now.
  14. DWARVEN REPEATING CROSSBOW This crossbow was invented by grilthram grandaxe using a simple gear and teeth to contract the string, load a bolt, and release all in one fluid motion. The length of the crossbow is the size of any regular crossbow, as well as the width of the crossbow is for the most part unaltered. What makes this crossbow stand out however is its loading and firing mechanisms, as well as its weight and overall cumbersome nature. The mechanics As stated before the main frame of the crossbow stays the same it shoots with as much strength as any other crossbow however the difference here being that it shots are much much faster. Now let's jump right in a wooden rail rests on the flight groove sliding back and forth up and down the length of the cross bow. The wooden rail has on one of the sides teeth for gears to connect and pull it back up the length of the crossbow. It would look like this (Fig1) except it would be upside down resting on the sides of the flight groove connected at the back. Now at the very back of the wooden rail would rest the string and a small groove for the bolts to lay to be flung forward and down the crossbow and at the enemy. That is the loading and firing portion of the device now lets return back to (Fig 1) The large gear seen here would have a handle on it so that the user would be able to rotate the gear causing the wooden rail to move back towards the end of the cross bow loading another bolt to be shot. Now let's move onto the next part the ammo, Above the back end of the device resting on the sight bridge is a large container of ammo that can be clipped on and off of the the crossbow to reload see (Fig2) It is suggested that when firing the device one lays down or rests against a stable object this will allow for long range firing as it presents the user with a more accurate way to control and fire the weapon. On the bottom of the weapon, a bipod would also be located for mounting the weapon as well as a long stock for resting it on the shoulder. Firing the weapon itself requires one to be prone or resting on a solid surface. Rolls are -3 accruacy for each shot and you can only shoot every 3 seconds as it will take a few intervals of turning the crank to pull back and fire the weapon. Only those taught by grilthram would have the knowledge of how the gears turn and function correctly. Any knock offs would be very dangerous and likely to cause injury in usage. An LT must over must over see the contruction of the device. (Fig1) (Fig 2) PROS The device offers quick repeat heavy shots of crossbow bolts at any range depending on the way the user is holding it. the crossbow can only be fired mounted on a bipod or a solid surface having the stock rest on top of the shoulder. In dire situations one may be able to get 1 or 2 shots off in mid-close combat but those shots will take a -5 accuracy penalty. It can be used to suppress enemies or fire into large groups of enemies with varying success depending on the situation at hand. Cons It is very clunky so much more than your average crossbow because of the ammo cartridge making it very hard to transport around as one must always use care as not to break the delicate machinery within. The user must be quite strong as to rotating the gears would require a lot of strength to use as well as carrying the weapon around so only dwarves, humans, uruks, and the occasional buff elf. Loading can take some time and the ammo required will take up a lot of space as well anyone carrying this would be weighed down heavily in battle. The parts required to make are all custom made so its much more expensive than your average crossbow however much more deadly as well. It must be mounted to be fired accurately shooting from the hip will likely injure comrades as the weapon as no sights to aim from. It can only shoot 7 bolts at a time per ammo container.
