Flintlock Fantasy

Hello cardsmiths!

The idea of a fantasy setting where guns are a thing and magic interacts with the technology of the 17th century isn't exactly new, but recently there's been an uptick in people playing with this concept, from Brian McClellan's Powder Mage Trilogy and Brent Weeks' Lightbring series to video games settings like the one for Pillars of Eternity.

These so-called "flintlock fantasy" settings are something Magic has yet to explore, but there's a ton of interesting stuff to play with there, so let's take a shot at it ourselves!
