My variant is simple and I will explain the reasons below:

- Gentlemen can make short ranged attacks if they have a positive Trigger value. They do not need a ranged card to do so.




Reasoning:
Primarily, I’ve found that the character balance rather off, for characters who rely on Trigger but do not start with a ranged weapon. Some are weaker than their Punch counterparts. Some are absolutely useless in a mission.

Additionally, it is a pet peeve of mine, wherein a game introduces a skill value (Trigger) but it can never be used in it’s unmodified value (as all ranged weapons provide at least +1 bonus).

I'm also not aware of any pure ranged-based character that don't come base-line with a weapon either.

But (for Nicolas) it costs 2 ethers, comparing to free attack for the others Gentlemen.
But (for me) it's a very powerfull item...

I took the phonograph as a ranged weapon she can just use with her Trigger attribute, but that also has a special ability you can spend Ether on.
