  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 foot bow is a large composite bow with a much greater pull strength and is fired in an unconventional way. It has two 'stirrups' either side of the arrow shelf and as such, it is fired from a lying position. This means that the bow is much easier to pull and has increased range.

The foot-bow can only be used on a flat surface (i.e. not on stairs or a mount) and the firer can only move 5ft as a full round action without unequipping which provokes an attack of opportunity.

Whilst it is in use, the firer counts as being prone for all checks and rolls. It takes a full round action to ready or unready the Foot-Bow this includes standing and lying times and provokes attacks of opportunity. The feat 'quick draw' reduces these to standard move actions.

All Foot-bows, much as composite bows, are built with a particular strength rating defaulting at +0 and costing an additional 100 gp for each +1. As the Foot-Bow is fired using four limbs, the strength bonus to damage is double that of the normal composite bow.

For any other rules that I have missed, assume they are the same as the composite bow.
