  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

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.
