Fantasy Gun

A lot of fantasy runs into problems because if the work follows the rule of cool, and guns are possible, then guns are cool.

But guns aren’t just cool but really useful, so everyone should be using the Power of Gun to solve their problems instead of Po Sword, Po Magic, Po Whatever.

And then you’re back at westerns. If the work doesn’t want to be a western but does want cool guns, that’s a dead end.
