Early cuverin Date 1898 Encyclopedie Larousse, 1890
content was created for the Pathfinder rules by Paizo Publishing LLC and
is part of the Pathfinder RPG product line.
The culverin, also known
as a hand bombard, consists of a simple smoothbore tube, sealed at one end except
for a small hole used to ignite a gunpowder charge.
A wooden stock partially
encases the barrel, allowing the wielder to hold it under his arm with relative
ease when carrying it. Firing a culverin without support (such as a wall, a
window, or a stand) imparts a 4 penalty on the attack rolls, and the wielder
is knocked prone. A culverin uses 4 doses of black
powder and grapeshot. Note
that these statistics simulate only the original, hand-held culverinstheir
larger descendants are considered cannons and are dealt with in the section
