Weapon (longbow), artifact (requires attunement)

A bow that felled gods, BrennenYn was lost in the plain of eternal damnation in the final battle against gods and men. It became the heart of eternally burning tree. The infernal name BrennenYn has its roots in two ancient words meaning "burnning" and "lands". An archdevil known only as the the Red Death lived in the lands wielding BrennenYn as his personal weapon. Betrayed by his people he used the bow to corrupt the blasted lands turning it into a burning wasteland claiming it as his kingdom. BrennenYn's handle is wrapped in a very tight, black leather. At the cusp where nocked arrows rest against the handle, ther is a golden metallic inlay. The rest of the bow is a curved, blood red and black, dragon bone texture that radiates heat and small flames at the ends. As it curves to the ends of the recurve bow, it flexes and shifts on its own, tightening and loosening on its own accord. As an arrow is nocked, the bow tightens immediately; when the string is pulled back, it takes no strength to do so, as if the bow pulls the string back itself. When fired, the arrows shoot off at an incredible speed and the bow flexes forward with such intensity that it makes a roaring "Whoosh" sound followed by the crackling of flames. As the Red Death went to sleep following the exertions of the Nine Hells and the Grey Hunt, BennenYn seemed to grow and become more refined in its definition of shape, later revealed to have entered its exalted state.
