Neither am I familiar with Iron Kingdoms... esplain?

Sort of a steampunk setting .. low steampunk maybe? I can't tell you that much about the RPG as I only play the wargame of it.

A gun mage is a magic user who can channel spells through their pistol, enchant bullets to deliver spells and so on.

Sounds interesting! So the gun is more a spell delivery tool than just a bangbangshootshoot?

A bit of each I think. I believe it can fire normal bullets (and does more damage as the character levels up), can fire rune bullets that deliver spells, and can have spells cast through it. I'm a little fuzzy on the details.

If you don't mind me jumping in with a question,

What exactly is steampunk?

Well, I'm not running a specific system, so think about how you'd like such a thing to work, specialties and limitations of it, and we'll chat about it. :)

Steampunk!
As defined by Wikipedia: Steampunk is a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or a presumption of functionality.

I wasn't actually thinking about it for myself. Someone mentioned firearms, so I was tossing that out as an example of a setting where it's been done.

Just to give you an idea how slow a flintlock is.
First you lift the gun up. (Barrel up)
Open your powder horn.
pour a practiced measure of powder down the barrel.
Slide a lead ball wrapped in cloth down the barrel
Use the ramrod to push the ball against the powder
Lift the gun up. (Parallel to the ground)
Cock the lever halfway back (Half-cocked.)
pour powder into the flash pan.
set a match into the match slot
Pull the lever back (Fully cocked)
Light the match.
pull the trigger.

Depending on your shooting prowess the bad thing goes away.

Best time. one shot a minute.

Wash rinse repeat.

So I wouldn't be shooting a ridiculous amount of shots.

unless you are really, really good at hitting things with the butt of it.  ;D

I'm interested by the way, but not quite sure what I want my character to be yet.

Mannik is right I can still use it to hit stuff. Plus I'd have a dagger too. (Sort of like the ranger who has a bow but uses a short sword as well.)

Hmm..I would love to throw myself into something like this. I've never been in a group game doing more than making a character sheet and something falls apart with me.

And this would be my first steam-punk type game.. I would love the chance here.

Don't you dare go trying to turn all the ladies into Tavern Wenches, there are NPCs for that nonsense!


Although if a woman REALLY thinks she'll find the most enjoyment in a wench role, that's her choice.
