Longbow


At almost 5 feet in height, a longbow is made up of one solid piece of carefully curved wood.

Description: You need 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, apply it to damage rolls when you use a longbow. If you have a Strength bonus, you can apply it to damage rolls when you use a composite longbow (see below), but not when you use a regular longbow.

Eastern Version: Daikyu This long curved bow made of laminated bamboo or wood, and favored by many samurai, is equivalent to a longbow.
