Not almost exclusively, exclusively.

And they're tight.

Expect to replay a mission a lot until you figure out how the devs want you to play it since there's never any slack in your timings. I don't remember needing to save scum do to the RNG to make them, but I did once or twice due to not following the exact path and move order.

Just be warned that the scoring system is exacting and stupid. If you want the high rank, and you do otherwise youll be dirt poor and horribly under leveled, you will be doing almost nothing but running up and shooting people in the face regardless of tactical considerations, safety, or sanity.

Mostly RPGs and Adventure games.

While I'm sure my twenty-five year old Daisy PowerLine (I think, I'll have to look at it tomorrow) would get me shot if I pointed at a policeman expecting a gunfight, I also tend to think that it'd be far less likely to be assumed to be a 'real' gun out of hand.

And for comparison, The Crossman Mk-177, which I now realise is copying the ACR, but the point still stands.

I'm sorry, I was thinking of the double stacked .45ACPs.

Does it create, rearrange, or damage holdings?

Good question. No, based on the precedent we've set with other effects on landscapes (Move Earth, Illusionary Terrain).

That seems rather inadequate for an 8th level spell.  If a player has been investing in a class for at least 15 levels which inherently means they've gone past the game breaker threshold, I'd think they'd be really cheesed off that they're not able to finally rip out the foundations of an enemy stronghold.

Enemy strongholds aren't Holdings. They're scenery.

As understand it people with smaller hands can't get a proper grip on older style large frame hand guns like the 1911 or M9.

It's like an unofficial and accidental post facto kickstarter, complete with wacky delays and the producer taking a loss. Wink

Also, my Alexandrian calendar joke feels doubly funny now.  Grin

But the gun in question wasn't an airsoft gun, its a bb/pellet gun. Not something 'safe' for running around shooting and shooting friends and fellow hobbiests with. Airsoft has to be shipped with orange barrel shrouds and must meet most of the same toy gun rules in a lot of places.

It's true I forgot to do the background on the weapon(?).
But yeah, point recognized. Potentially reasonably regarded as dangerous object.r
Not like when someone claims a firearm isn't a weapon because it can't be logically argued that all it can do is produce injuries.

And just to be clear, all I was going for was that it seems like a bad idea to make a BB gu, hixh are regarded as toys even though they aren't (people hunt deer with them) that looks more or less exactly like a "real" assault rifle is probably a bad idea.

The Police have to treat any gun like a real one, but I can't help but think they'd recognize my old daisy bb gun as not a real firearm. I don't plan on testing it though.

Also, while it wasn't exactly the same thing, that incident is close enough to show the insanity of the current fad for SWATing.

The video doesnt have audio so its hard to be sure, but it doesn't look like they identify themselves or call for surrender and the caller has admired he lied to the operator and press.

BB, pellet, and Airsoft guns and paintball markers are not considered toy guns. Some states consider them full firearms. The gun in question is sold as a hunting weapon and has functional rails.

OK, but a bb gun that looks almost exactly like one still feels like a bad idea.

Also, apparently the bb gun in question is a pretty damn convincing replica of a SCAR-H.

I'm not sure if there's a civilian version, but that strikes me know bad an idea of the child's .22LR in bright appealing colors.

seriously, do you now difficult it is to get figures on just how many people the police in America kill every year?).

Remember we don't have a national police fore here, an most places actually have three or four without counting federal agencies.
