Hello does anyone know how to use swivel cannons with the Muskets and Tomahawks rules? I see they list it in the rules book but does not go into much detail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I use them in my Fort Necessity scenario I've run at a couple cons. They get two puffs of smoke for each firing, meaning it takes two actions to reload. I allow up to two men to man a swivel gun, so if they each spend an action the gun gun is reloaded. The guns aren't any more deadly than musket fire but they do cause a penalty on moral checks.

Rules for them seem reasonably clear in the rulebook section on boats.
