In the THB and in Against Gravity, cannon and artillery, as well as mortars, are listed as minimum TL 5. My question becomes, what of primitive cannon? TL3 or 4, at most, I'm thinking.

Now, that's the easy part. How about modifying the stats in Against Gravity to reflect a lower TL? Lowering the rate of fire is a given, as they were muzzle loaded, and packed with powder, wadding, ball or shot, etc.

I'm also wondering if I shold make them larger, spacewise, for the same size round/damage, etc. Also if I should shorten the range. I don't know nearly enough about this stuff.

I'm doing all this to build a galleon, complete with cannon, sails, built of wood, etc. Probably TL4ish.
