Gunlock (D&D 5e)

By player request, inspired by the Gungeon final boss – The Lich.  GUNLOCK  Gunesis 1:1 In the beginning, the Gungeon was formless and void, and bullets moved over the face of the deep. Studying the mystical arts takes a lot of time and effort. Some find this overly onerous or lack the means to learn, […]
