For some weapons there will be probably nonlethal ammo clips
The merciful weapon fusion also exists in some form. From the soldier 5th level ability
"Secret of the Magi (SU)
When you imbue a weapon with the rune of the eldritch knight, in addition to its normal benefits, the rune grants the weapon one of the following weapon fusions of your choice: ethereal, flaming, frost, merciful, or shock. The weapon can't gain a fusion it already has, and this bonus fusion doesn't count toward the maximum total level of fusions the weapon can have at once. The bonus fusion ends when the weapon ceases to be imbued with the rune of the eldritch knight. For more information on fusions, see page 191."
One question I have not seen anywhere else. Since you are trying to keep melee useful and have classes that specialize in it - will there be some form of bayonet that ranged focused characters can equip so they don't have to switch back and forth. What about rules on using the stock/barrel as an improvised weapon?
Can someone help me with the status of this order, It is my adventure path subscription for Giant Slayer #1 placed on Feb 7. When I placed the order it said that the mod would ship in 1-7 business days but I have not seen any updates since then. Any help would be appreciated.
