No sharper than that
Eastern standard time is the same time as Eastern Daylight time because weird daylight savings time things actually.
Quilted Cloth was made before the firearm was introduced. It was never updated to include rules about firearms.
Honestly I'd say it boils down to three options.
By RAW either option 1 or 2 would be a correct interpretation at this time.
Huh...Penny is a name isn't it? Well now my post seems far less silly.
Well if that's the case..vow of silence. Problem solved.
But if that's the case just tell your gm your character only says things you specifically state your character is saying. So if you do recognize the king as the death cult leader and blurt it out, at least your character isn't then assumed to blurt it out.
By low wisdom in real life I assume you mean you are the type to open a chest without checking for traps first. If this is the case get some flash cards for various situations.
So the rules as written say.
The description of the item calls out "arrows, bolts, darts, shuriken, thrown daggers, and other small ranged piercing weapons."
Now my questions is what exactly is a small ranged piercing weapon? As defined in the rules.
