Now that we have cannons in UO, it's clear metallurgy has advanced enough

    Ok, is this better, *sigh* why must you needlessly create completely pointless threads about things which will never happen and make absolutely no sense, at all in any way in this medieval role playing game, did they have guns in real medieval times? no, did they have cannons? yes, were guns invented 20 years after cannons in real life, no, so guess what, that means UO can have can cannons and not guns.

    We had a musket at Ultima VII, though, and to this day I wonder why we don't have it on UO.

    I thought it was a shotgun actually, and Lord British brought it with him from Earth, it is assumed it was lost after he abdicated the throne.

    We didn't have dragons in the middle ages either, yet walk into Destard and try to tell them they don't exist.

    There is clearly sufficient technology in Britannia to support simple small arms, and given that there WERE firearms in the medieval era, it makes no sense for them to be specifically excluded from UO.

    IF they could make it UO style, like "an explosion potion launcher" or something , and make it shoot potions farther than we can throw them now. or explode immediately instead of waiting for the timer, it would at least make a little sense

    Do you know just how simple a device a firearm is? Especially a musket or other non-cartridge gun? I'll give you a hint: Simpler than a repeating crossbow.

    Ok, this answer should finish this, Ultima = game , developers = gods of the game , gods of the game say no guns = conversation over. they have said it multiple times in game over the years, possibly on forums somewhere to.

    So you come in and **** on my thread because you believe you remember the devs saying no guns, but you aren't wiping your bottom all over the latest free to play thread.

    Please don't post in my thread anymore.

    Actually I've been thinking about what to post on that thread while posting here, since that is an actual possibility and posts matter there thought is required, here....not so much. why not make UO nukes to and make UO ray guns? yay for random stuff that makes no sense! :)

    I hope you realize about half of your posts on everyone else's threads are trolling...but ok, back to the threads that actually matter.
