It was notoriously unstable, inaccurate, and expensive. Arrows were cheap, accurate, and there was no danger of it blowing up your soldiers if something went wrong. But how would the inclusion of basic gunpowder be any more imbalancing than magic?
And there are a few guns in the Castle: Ninja line, does that count?
For what it's worth... gunpowder wouldn't be any more unbalancing than magic. But an executive decision has been made to have absolutely no gunpowder, and for the time being that decision stays. Think of it as a stylistic decision: we'd RATHER see Elves and magic than gunpowder.
And no, the Ninja guns do NOT count or exist in this Roleplay. Nor did they in the last.
It's not IMPOSSIBLE that this decision may be opened up to a reversal in the distant future, but I wouldn't press for it.
