Weapons Description

Shortbow, composite

You need at least two hands to use a bow, regardless of its size. A character who is Small or larger can use this bow while mounted. Composite bows are made from laminated horn, wood, or bone and built with a recurve, meaning that the bow remains bow-shaped even when unstrung. They can be made with especially heavy pulls to take advantage of a character's above-average Strength (see Mighty Composite Longbow or Shorthow, page 113).
