Kyle reads it over and grins. "Well, seeing as Redge saved us the trouble of worrying about the sniper, we don't have to worry about the sign. However, I don't see how anyone could shoot us with the many rocks that are in the way."
OOC: I remember that part of the description.
From the trees, Miranda calls down to the group.
"Oh, come on. Do you honestly think I couldn't hit you from without here if I had to? From this distance? I can
actually aim, you know. And by the way, you know those "amazing projectile weapons" you were talking about? This rifle I have here can launch projectiles at about, oh, I'd say about four to six times the speed that those can, with an accurate range of well over two miles. And because of that velocity, it won't just punch a hole in you like any other gun you've seen. Your body will shatter from a single shot at this range. For that matter, you would be dead if I even managed a near miss. In other words, the sign still stands."
She looks up and behind her at the Tranquility, which is hovering in the air about three miles out from the Temple, just behind the outer ring of troops.
"Oh, and you may just want to look back there. That would be the Tranquility, so Synthis should be down soon. And don't get any ideas about fighting, especially now. That airship has sixteen of the same kind of weapon that my rifle is, and they fire projectiles with over three times the mass."
OOC: I agree about the guns being so uncommon. If you want, I'll remove the spiral bore weapons from my airships and replace them with smooth bores. The gauss rifles would stay, since they don't even need a traditional barrel at all.
