The Pepperbox of Pacification
A modern pepperbox-style revolving firearm, which can be loaded with dragon powder and lead balls to allow users to fire up to six shots at a target 10-25 paces away with a high chance of causing devastating or fatal injury. This pepperbox will load and fire perfectly at a paper target or firing range, but it will refuse to fire at any living being. Even accidental discharges are impossible, as the magicked barrels are twisted such that the dragon powder is rendered inert and the lead balls stick in the chambers. It is speculated that this weapon was prepared as a means of covert assassination, intended to fail its owner when they were in great personal danger, but other than the enigmatic maker’s mark GKW nothing else is known about it.
