"On a practical level, while we wait for King Faramund, I should tell Everless everything I know about guns, which are a form of projectile weapon far superior to crossbows.

"Such materials are more readily available outside of Wonderland's borders," Everless says. "The trick is getting across them."

"Well, then, the principle behind guns is using that in sufficient quantities to cause small metal projectiles to shoot out at large speeds at your target. Much better than bow and arrow."
