Equipment is important, be it a simple weapon or not.
After the largest human kingdom and largest dwarven empire fell during the Carrington Event that ruined the concurrent experiments at each location, trapping the world’s original two gods. In the chaos that ensued, the Elves helped bring balance to the world, one of which was a unified currency called Dozen (dz) which allowed banks and businesses greater ease to operate.
If you are importing items from an other source, you can use the following conversion of prices for purchasing goods:
1 copper piece (cp) = 0.01dz
1 silver piece (sp) = 0.5dz
1 gold piece (gp) = 5dz
Though, if the GM wish to have characters find old coins in out of the way locations, they have the following street value:
1cp = 0.02dz
1sp = 20dz
1 electrum (ep) = 400dz
1gp = 1,400dz
1 platinum piece (pp) = 1,620dz
Though players could search for antiques dealers, collectors, or the such and sell them for up to twice the value given with a DC 15 persuasion check to sell at 1.50 value and DC 25 for the full double value, though GMs are welcome to adjust the value the coins sell for based on where in between the two values the roll falls.
The world of Audunis has various manufacturers, all who specialize in different weapons. Each region and/or country has at least one, but goods from other areas are available, though sometimes goods run out when storms, pirates, or beasts, to name a few, cause shipments to go lost or get damaged.
The base standard is REMK, the conglomeration run by the gods Roman, Ex, Magnus, and Keith. Shortly after Roman took over the abandoned castle, he put the large underground rooms to use and had a whole manner of forges and assembly plants installed. While none of the workers live near the castle, they commute by bullet train from settlements and communities ranging from 50 to 1,00 miles away.

A personal shield is a device, either worn on the arm, or like an ammo sash. A personal shield has 5 hit points and recharges after 10 minutes of no damage. While not requiring attunement, they do gain bonuses when attuned and using the optional quintessence rules. The shield strength is now equal to one quintessence die, typically a d6, that is maximized (a 6 when a d6)+ the appropriate modifier of the character. Higher quality shields that have the base hit points raised by 5 or more instead gain an additional quintessence die with modifier per 5 points. In addition, while attuned, the wearer can spend a bonus action and two quintessence points per die the shield has to recharge the shield by rolling one quintessence die and adding their modifier once per die they roll.
A personal shield with the Kaiser enhancement can choose to collapse their shield into an energy blade as a bonus action. The +1 bonuses that add to the shield HP now add to the attack and damage rolls of the shield. Kaiser personal shield weapons are finesse weapons and their damage die is the same as the quintessence die of the character. Some Kaiser personal shields are further enhanced so that their damage die is one higher than the quintessence die.
A shotgun is a simple weapon with multiple ammunition types. Slugs have a range of 30ft/60ft. Shot is a spray of pellets in a 15ft cone. When you use shot, targets in the cone make a saving throw instead of you making an attack roll. The targets must make a Dex save for half damage or take full damage on a failed saving throw. The DC is 8+ your proficiency modifier + your Dex modifier + any magical enhancements to the gun.
A tactical shotgun is a martial weapon with multiple ammunition types and holds more than 1 round. Some tactical shotguns can have the Quick Reloading property as they use a mag instead of loading extra rounds into the weapon. Tactical shotguns have the same slug and shot properties as a normal shotgun (see above).
An anti-material rifle is a martial weapon that is unwieldy to fire. While it has a short range of half a mile and a long range that is 1+ miles depending upon conditions at your GM’s discretion. This weapon has disadvantage on shots with an additional -5 penalty at long range unless the weapon is set up with its bipod upon a stable surface, like a wall, or you fire it from being prone while using the bipod. Alternatively, these penalties disappear if you have a strength of 23 or higher. Due to recoil and to prevent over heating, the Anti-Material Rife can only be fired once per round.
Weapons with quick reloading property have a quick release that ejects the mag allowing you to quickly reload the weapon if you have an ammo belt with preloaded mags. If you are dual wielding two guns without the heavy property, or your other weapon is light (or normal with the dual wielding feat), you are able to pull a mag off the belt and reload this weapon while holding the other weapon as your free item interaction. Two weapons with this property could be reloaded at the same time as a bonus action.
While we don’t recommend using exotic weapon proficiencies as a primary rule, GMs could use exotic weapon proficiency as an optional rule or keep the following weapons as martial, but require instruction by a proper master.
The most creative and damning of railgun weapons is the combination of a railgun and a shotgun. This railgun uses specialized ammunition that have an explosive charge in the middle of 12 Neodymium Tungsten alloy flechettes. Near the end of the barrel is a plasma window that sets of the explosive charge, causing the flechettes to spread out as if fired from a normal shotgun.
Cone: 5ft at barrel, 100 ft long, 15ft wide at end. Damage: 4d20. Penetration: 5ft. Special: Critical x3 dice instead of x2.
Ammunition: one high capacity battery pack, one 5 round special slug magazine. Each round costs 500 dozen and uses 1/5 of the battery pack full charge per shot.
