More information...


This finely crafted bow is hollow on the inside, but also has a reinforced interior structure that runs along that hollowed space giving it more power and less weight than a standard longbow. You need at least two hands to use a bow, regardless of its size. A longbow is too unwieldy to use while you are mounted. If you have a penalty for low Strength, you cannot use this bow.

  1. Increase total cost for magical enhancement by 2,000 gp for cold iron weapons.
  2. Unlike the additional cost, the increase the weapon's hardness and hit points are only gained from its enhancement bonus, not its special abilities.
  3. If the weapon has a magical bonus greater than +5 or a special ability worth more than +5, the weapon is epic. Multiply magic cost by 10.

Prequisites: Must find someone who is both a Masterwork Bowyer as well as a Masterwork Metallurgist

Cost to Create: longbow x10 gp

Wielded by: Mr. Watchtower
