A Gunslinger is typically feared and renowned for their skill and reputation, which enables them to get what they want with a threat or a look (and occasionally a bullet). But it also makes them vulnerable, as targets or akin to modern day superstars, they stick out in a crowd and are often easily recognized. This makes the Auto-G, in my opinion, one of the best racial candidates to become a Gunslinger. Shapeshifting ability so they can perform their hits/jobs and then slip away from town to town with their pockets full of cash and a lingering reputation that is also shrouded with an air of mystery sounds like a great space western to me.
I ended up getting this posted later than expected due to some surprise appointments and a week’s worth of crankiness from my not-napping toddler. Also, this R.C.C. and O.C.C. combination was a lot bigger of an undertaking than I realized initially; I had to type up so many different equipment templates! Anyway, I think my hard work payed off.
