Well, I got inspiration for this from one of my friends who broke his ankle and now walks with crutches.


When we think of guns, we immediately picture the stereotypical guns of humanity, right? But how about something like this:



Pretty cool, huh? Now that's the shape I imagine Zen'ji guns to look like. A lot more original than human gun shapes, right?


Now, replace the barrel with a blade and you've got what I'm thinking for swords. Smile


Discuss.

advantages? The most practical weapons will be selected for so I'd like to know the advantages over the standard concept.

I see that getting stuffed full of dirt. and it is pretty much a underhanded rifle... Look at it upside down.

I also think they use their hands for two many things to have their weapons held in them as well.

Also, it would restrict elbow movement, unless the arm guard thing was shorter.

Not to mention uselss for sword play because it restricts the movement of the blade. As a gun how difficult would it be to load? Either muzzle or barrel loading weapons would require detaching the weapon from the arm.

Lichen... you have to do that with muzzle loaders anyways...

Not to pop your bubble Temp, just weapons like that were built for humans. In order to make a weapon for another species you have to think like them, no doubt you can cause you created them, you have to know how they would use a weapon, how they would try and kill their enemy. A gun on this species to me seems pointless, but because I have no idea how they think I can not be sure.

I've already figured most of those things out on paper. I'll upload it when I have the chance.

The majour advantage for using this concept is better originality.

However, please post any ideas you guys may have as well! Pleasantly Surprised

I suppose we should not criticize when we ourselves have given no concepts.

What about a demorlizing weapon that rarely kills.
Maybe a tube like "gun" where dried, crushed plant material is put into the nozzle and shoots out a burst of the material, stinging eyes and demoralizing the ememy.
The weapon may look somthing like a Byzantine flamthrower to give you and idea

FIne I shall go and draw up some concept art, although I have no familiarity with the creatures biology. I promise it will not look like Earth Weapons.

I'm going to bring my rocket weapons for their originality. Just a stick, a matchlock-like mechanism and a rocket = original gun-sub.

Please, do attempt to draw up your ideas. Very Happy

As for the biology, go to the species archive, look for the Xen'vi and look at their hards and arms. Smile

Feel silly asking this but is there a way to take a picture of a power point or post a power point as a picture?

Make it a GIF, or Prt Sc for each page in Full Screen and size them down in an image editor.

Otherwise. No.

Yeah, you'll have to make it into a GIF animation...


OR


Go to a file sharing site (I use MediaFire. It's free. Pleasantly Surprised), upload the file and give us a link to the download. Smile (If you use MS 2007 or higher for the power point, please save it as an MS 2003-and-lower compatible file, assuming I know what you're talking about ^^.)
