I decided to start a new char for chow 195 - Mystic Gunslinger, take me 6 hours to complete
This wild west character, not satisfied with the power of their 6-shooter, has combined the use of pistols with magic. It’s up to you how the combination works and what effect it has.
While the character can be from any time period, the pistol(s) and costume must reflect the wild west theme. He or she can be wielding laser pistols or steam punk compressed gas handguns, so long as we can look at them and see that they really have a thing for the old cowboy tales. "

''Kord lived as a young brave from a fierce tribe of nomadic warriors, travelling the seas in search of food and gold. He learned the ways of the sword at a young age and was driven to forge a name for himself as a mighty hero.
This brash and reckless thirst for glory would ultimate lead him to take a small band into the forbidden marshlands in search of a legendary demon witch known as The Barrowgena. After days of travel they were ambushed by a foul and ghoulish monster that tore many of Kord’s companions to shreds. Kord alone battled the beast until he finally drove his blade deep into its heart.
That night as they celebrated, thinking that they had slain the terror of the marshland, the Barrowgena looked down upon them with furious eyes. For they had slain her child, and she would see them all pay for his murder.
The witch later descended upon Kords people, butchering the entire tribe. She allowed Kord to live however, so he could witness her fury as she continued to roam the world wreaking vengeance upon all mankind.
Kord now travels in seek of redemption, applying the only real skill he has, as a sword for hire!''
