Post Gageteer question
I couldn't find anywhere that this had been asked before.
The Gagetteer makes gadgets that emulate spell effects. But I can't find any limitations on their use. If he makes a fireball gun, does he get to cast fireball every turn? Seems a little broken.

In the class description there is a point by point dealing with how the effects work. For example, max spell level is 6 or cannot emulate a spell over their level or all ranged gadgets require an attack roll regardless of description. There are like 9 points IIRC (just reading this last night). In my read through, it didn't seem "broken" or unbalanced.

Well, my question was about number of uses which wasn't covered in the build rules. What I thought might be broken is:

"I make a flamethrower (Fireball spell). I then can cast fireball EVERY turn? Yes, I have to roll an attack each time, but still...that's a lot of fireballs."

However, I forgot that Arcanist spells work more like 5e spells than C&C ones so that closes the margin a little.
And, since posting this, I've read the companion that has a grenade launcher gadget pretty much exactly like this and they gave it a limited ammo per adventure and a reload time, so that mostly answers my question.
