Belly Bow (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
The Belly Bow is a crossbow on steroids. Able to hit hard and fast from a long range, it is one of the most feared weapons an enemy can expect when attacking a fortified structure, or being attacked. A medium-sized Belly Bow is about 4 feet long, allowing for a higher-tension string, which in turn gives more power to the shot.
When a Belly Bow is fired, the user places the butt of the weapon around his or her waist just above the groin.
You can shoot, but not load, a Belly Bow with one hand at no penalty. You cannot fire more than one Belly Bow at a time, though it is possible to fire another weapon in the other hand. Standard two-weapon fighting penalties apply.
Reloading a Belly Bow is a standard action that provokes an attack of opportunity.
Unlike a crossbow, a Belly Bow fires Arrows.
