Kaigun

Marksmen are known for using all variety of ranged weapons, the rare few of them wielding firearms. Kaiguns are those marksmen who opt to focus their training with firearms, becoming deadly gun-wielders.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency

Kaiguns are proficient with all simple weapons, all light, projectile, and thrown martial weapons, firearms, and light armor.

Gun Wielder

At 1st level, the kaigun gains the Amateur Gunslinger feat and the Gunsmithing feat as bonus feats. He also gains a battered gun identical to the one gained by the gunslinger.

This ability replaces Point-Blank Shot.

Psionic Deed

At 2nd level, the kaigun gains access to a single 1st-level deed normally available to a gunslinger. This deed works and interacts with grit the same way as gunslinger deeds. If the kaigun also has levels in gunslinger, he can spend grit points from that class to use this deed.

This ability replaces Evade Arrows (+1).

Editor’s Note

In addition to the standard deeds available to gunslingers, kaiguns and other characters with access to deeds and the psionic subtype have access to a special class of deeds called psionic deeds. A complete list of psionic deeds can be found here: Psionic Deeds.

Telekinetic Reload (Su)

At 6th level, as a swift action the kaigun can expend his psionic focus to reload any one-handed firearm he is currently wielding.

This ability replaces the power known normally gained at 6th level.

Mental Grit (Su)

Beginning at 7th level, the kaigun learns how to turn his psionic power into grit points. As a swift action, the kaigun can spend 3 power points and expend his psionic focus after making a successful ranged attack with a firearm to gain 1 grit point, although the kaigun cannot exceed his normal maximum grit points.

This ability replaces disengage.

Focused Control (Su)

When a kaigun of at least 10th level misfires with a firearm and is maintaining psionic focus, the misfire value of that firearm increases by 2 instead of 4.

This ability replaces the power known normally gained at 10th level.
