Black Powder Blunders: Misfire Deck for Nations and Cannons



Black Powder Blunders!

This card deck has everything you need to bring firearms and artillery from Nations & Cannons to your historical or flintlock fantasy 5e game. Inside, you'll find over over a hundred new misfire effects for black powder weapons, making critical fumbles at your table more dynamic... and unpredictable!

Ranging from minor inconveniences to catastrophic explosions, this deck explores exciting new weapon properties from matchlock arquebuses, revolvers and pepper-boxes, lever-action rifles of the Old West, and everything in-between. Every card features either a first-hand account, lines of verse, or famous (or infamous!) quotes from 18th and 19th century figures. 

This deck contains 55 embossed poker-sized cards, stored in a wraparound tuckbox:

  • 24 unique Small Arms cards, for firearms like pistols and muskets
  • 16 unique Artillery cards, from cannons to mortars
  • 14 unique Grenade cards for heavy iron explosives
  • 1 key card explaining new misfire mechanics

The bundled Flintlocks & Fulminates PDF includes full 5e-compatible rules for firearms, grenades, artillery, and wargear from the Nations & Cannons campaign setting, making this the most comprehensive black powder ruleset available. This companion PDF consists of two parts: our well-received rules with new items, feats, enemies, etc. for use in your campaign; plus exclusive playtest content and experimental mechanics, updated periodically with new iterations.

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
