    So the rules allow outlander gangs to purchase alternative house weapons at the cost of a rare trade. By this logic, can a standard gang purchase outlander weapons? i.e can my goliaths purchase an eviscerator? what about an exterminator? Could my Orlocks purchase a pitslave buzzsaw?

    I couldn't point to anything in the rules, but I'd definitely say no.

    Flavour wise I agree but like you just said, nothing is mentioned in the rules

    If the rules are for outlander gangs, logic doesn't dictate that those rules apply for and in reverse for standard gangs.

    It says in the gang's outlander rules at the top of their gear that other gangs can't use them.

    HelloDarren we haven't met. If its available at the outlaw trading post and a gang can shop there?? That might get them outlawed. :eek:

    I always liked the idea of House gangs going to the outlaw trading post but taking a penalty the next time they roll on the outlaw chart...

    The penalties could add up to.

    Thanks again for the rules clarification Malo. As it was written at the top of the pages I missed it as being fluff text, not rules

    I always thought that the Outlaw Status roll was downplayed. Maybe if going to the Outlaw trading post was a very stiff fine but not an immediate outlawing then it would promote more use of it...

    Common weapons are listed in the NCE rulebook. Outlander specific weapons are not common weapons outside of their own weapons list so cannot be purchased by other gangs.

    I could see the merit of a change there. Would certainly open up some under-utilised options. Perhaps just a -1 on the outlaw roll if a gang uses the outlaw trading post? Maybe increase costs slightly for non-outlaw gangs?

    At the moment I thought you had to be an outlaw gang to even have access to the outlaw trading post? Having played a legit gang that was forced into being an outlaw one of my few solaces was knowing I could find trades that regular gangs couldn't access :p

    At the moment, that is indeed correct. The suggestion was that perhaps it could change to allow everyone access with higher risk of becoming an outlaw. A person doesn't have to be known to police to try to search out illicit items, but doing so can certainly draw attention of the authorities.

    The main side effect being that hopefully you would see more of the cool stuff like narcotics and whatnot.
