Okay I seen the one staff that had stun batons on the ends.

I was thinking a staff with an integrated taser w/laser sight on one end, disguised, and a disguised stun baton on the other end. Maybe the the disguises are partially retractable sheaths that require wireless to retract.

1155 by the individual pieces. What would a reasonable price be for an armorer to make it? Or skills and equipment for a char to make?

For the taser end would that be exotic ranged or pistol? To use.
Tasers use pistol but it's a radically diffrent shape.

You could hold it like a rifle though, aim along the shaft etc.
But i am firmly against making anything wireless a requirement.

Balance wise I don't see a reason for a huge markup over the individual components. That leaves the cost of taking the stunner out from one of the ends of a Stun Staff and putting in a taser, plus a few plastic pieces and servos...another 500 maybe?

And yes, Exotic Ranged sounds like a better fit than pistols -- even longarms would probably be closer to the handling of that staff than pistols wink.gif

I would concur that the taser end would use the exotic ranged weapon skill - just like gun canes and shooting bracers do.

I am not fond of wireless bonuses either, but if you use them, I would make them consistent with the existing ones - retracting the sheaths should take a simple action without wireless, but a free action with wireless enabled. Also, the stun baton end will recharge by induction, and the taser will give you basic health/Condition Monitor information about the target upon a successful hit.

I think Sengir is about right on the price to purchase one. Making one would probably require the armorer and hardware skills, with at least a shop for each skill, and an appropriate knowledge skill (or skills) for designing it.

Thank you all, now with that idea, I think I will take an appropriate contact and do the cost.
