Ranged Doubling Rings? (GnG playtest item that didn't make the cut?)


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion

Doubling Rings allow the runes of an item in one hand to also work for the item in the other hand. But they're melee only.

Here on the forums I discovered that apparently during the playtest of Guns and Gears there was a ranged version of them.

But I do not see mention of it in the published book that I own.

Does such an item exist anywhere? Perhaps under a different name? Or was it purposefully kept out?

They aren't quite the same, but there are the Blazons of Shared Power that are reasonably equivalent and do work with ranged weapons.

Thanks. That's exactly what I was seeking.

I see it's attached to the weapons so it won't give the character I had planned the impact I wanted, but it will give an impact she could use.

I'd wanted to be able to just grab any gun into the second hand and have it benefit, so that she could have a whole pile of dueling pistols strapped to her.

But this item does do a more balanced thing - while letting me not have to get duplicate runes and such.

I see this is from GnG - so it looks like the result of the playtest was to make this item instead of having a ranged version of doubling rings.

There is also the Gunner's Bandolier - which is for carrying multiple different firearms and having runes transferred to each of them as you draw them.


And depending on your need, there's also the thrower's bandolier.
