It doesn’t matter what timeline or universe, whether he’s human or angel, or even stoned out of his freaking mind…Cas knows Dean.

Anonymous whispered: I have a fantasy world that is made from scratch and I have a few questions: if guns exist, then how do I balance them to make them fair against, say, swords and maces? And how does one go about describing weapons that are more exotic, such as a buugeng, a katar or wind and fire wheels, which probably aren't very well-known? And how does one write battle scenes for characters who wield such weapons?

fuckyeahcharacterdevelopment:

For the most part, I’m gonna tell you to ask our friends at howtofightwrite (http://howtofightwrite.tumblr.com/). They’re pretty and smart, trust them.

Some ideas for trying to even out guns to (somewhere vaguely approaching) the level of swords and maces in a fantasy setting:
- Guns are still very low tech, and therefore can’t consistently hit the broad side of a barn. They’re accurate at about point blank, so you have to wait til the person with the sword is within sword distance to fight.
- Again with the low tech: Reloading takes FOREVER, and the guns are single shot. If the first shot misses, sword or mace can charge and strike.
- Guns are prohibitively expensive. Only very rich people can purchase them. They like to lord it over the sword-ers.
- The guns are made very cheaply and badly, and break constantly, always at the worst moment.
-Ammunition is, for some reason, hard to come by. Or maybe it’s bad. Maybe some of your fantasy characters are werewolves, and you know how badly silver bullets affect aim.
-There is an intense social stigma around carrying guns, and people hate gun-weilders so fiercely that it’s going to make more danger than protection for you.
-Some characters can’t wield guns. Maybe there are fae who have a thing against cold iron. Maybe some characters are under a geas to never fire one. The guns that exist could be physical impractical for some species.
-Some characters aren’t affected by bullets. Because of magic. “No projectile weapon can kill me!” “I am not a projectile weapon! I was from my smith untimely ripped!” Eh heh.
-Magic messes with guns, like humidity and that one sniper rifle. Going somewhere where the magic is strong will affect the gun in… interesting ways.
-Guerrilla warfare and traps are a fun way to mess with people that have guns (or really anything) that want to mess up your shit.

In a straight shoot out, or a pitched battle, by our logic and laws of nature, my money will always be on the guns. However, your world doesn’t have to work with our logic or nature! So who knows- just give me a reason to believe that that swordsman and that gunman are on even ground, and there’s a good chance I’ll bite, for fantasy.
Logically, the best thing to do would be to walk around with a sword and a gun or two, because who’s to say that you can’t have both?

Goooood luck!
