Swords of Cydonia: Equipment List

Here is the list of Equipment starting characters in the upcoming Swords of Cydonia campaign will be able to purchase from.

It also includes the damage and number of shots for non-standard weapons like firearms. I had to try and balance historical accuracy with keeping the game somewhat balanced and from drifting into "too heavy" territory with unnecessary levels of detail about firearms.

With real six-shooters and rifles you'd be balancing issues like range, reliability, number of shots, power, availability of ammunition, kickback, smoke, etc. For this game I just want to deal with Damage, Number of Shots and Range. So while there are definitely historical repeating rifles with more than 6 shots, I've given them a limit of 6 shots to create a symmetry with the revolvers and keep some of the other weapon options as competitive choices for player character weaponry.
Equipment

Each character begins the game with 130 dollars, which is used to buy their starting equipment.
