Common Crossbows[edit | edit source]
|Short Bow - A simple bow fashioned from a single piece of elm wood, this weapon lacks power and range, but is quick to shoot and has a low draw weight.
It's suitable for small game, animal and otherwise.
|Recurved Ordu Bow - A short, composite birch bow reinforced with deer horn.
The Ordu bow is as much a part of the nomads' culture as the horse, and since it takes almost a year to craft a single one, it is never traded, only recovered from dead riders.
|Kemetian Bow - A medium-draw bow used by Kemetian charioteers to deadly effect.
Unlike most of its brethren, this bow is constructed entirely from horn, and bound to an acacia wood section in the center.
|Recurved Scythian Bow - This long and powerful Scythian bow, famous for its incurvation, is distinguished by the triangular center section and smoothly recurved tips.
D/AP: 1.714 to 2.286
|Long Bow - One of the most powerful bows, the longbow is fashioned from a single length of yew wood.
The longbow's power is limited only by the strength of the archer, and in the right hands can punch holes through even plate armor.
Rare Bows[edit | edit source]
|Old Faithful - An old elm longbow. It's an ugly, unfinished-looking weapon, but astonishingly stiff, large and strong, and equally capable for use for long or short shooting.
D/AP: 1.571 to 2.571
