Re: Rapid Reload feat not working for non-Bolt Ace Gunslinger archetypes
The problem is Paizo tacking on things after the fact.
Original Feat text: Choose a type of crossbow (hand, light, or heavy). You can reload such weapons quickly.
Notice no mention of muskets, firearms, or variant crossbows.
They started tacking on new choices after the fact, which means
the team has to add the new items to the list. (Spoiler alert, a
volunteer fixed one or more such variants regarding muskets which
will be appearing in RC 5).
The team codes what the publisher publishes, and you need to be
sharp-eyed and intimately understand how every class feature,
feat, trait, etc. works to make changes after the fact. Since the
Core Rulebook came out in 2008 the volunteers who worked on that
original set have since moved on and are no longer active in the
project. You have a new crop of hardy monkey volunteers adding
several new supplements at a breakneck pace. Chances are they
don't catch nuisances like old feats that need to be re-skinned.
Please be patient, open a report on what doesn't work, and chances
are we'll fix it. That's what we do.
But please, be kind. Remember, everyone is contributing to the project because they love gaming and sharing their time productively. They don't like people complaining at them for failing to make something perfect the first go of it. D&D d20 systems are complicated creations, and publishers are changing things constantly. We adapt and overcome.
