Question on weapon/armor era compatibility
« on: Jun 03, 2020, 09:23 AM »
Hey Vode!

I've got a question about what sorts of blasters we can use in a modern era kit. I found a Baragwin Assault Blaster kit from KotoR on Etsy, and would love to use it for the kit I'm working on. All I could find in the weapons section of the "Costume Requirements" page was that they can't resemble real firearms, and nerf has to he heavily modified.

Here's the kit for reference: https://www.etsy.com/listing/728041099/baragwin-assault-blaster?ref=user_profile&frs=1

Is there any rule about using SW weapons from a different era than your armor is? In this instance, Old Republic/Neo-Crusader era weapon with modern armor.

Thanks in advance!

I think as long as you're not using a weapon that wouldn't have existed in your era, you're probably fine. For something old like you're suggesting, maybe your Mando really has a thing for vintage weaponry? Maybe they found it, cleaned it up, modified it (a little bit) to bring it up to date.

I think of it as being like real world black powder enthusiasts and cowboy action shooters.  It's a similar appreciation for the old guns that, if kept in good condition, should be just as functional now as they were when they were made.

That's basically along the lines that I was thinking. Maybe a clan heirloom or something like that, or just like you guys suggested. Thanks vode!
