Cupid's Arrow

“Just give it here, would you?” Rathgar whispered impatiently.

“Stop jostling me, you’re going to make me waste the it. Besides, you know I’m a better shot than you are.” Nimble hissed. “Just sit tight.”

“We need her distracted.”

“You think I don’t know that?!?” Nimble tooked again from the rooftop across the street. Through the open window he could see the Countess alone in her room, preparing for a night out on the town.

“Hey, who’s up there?” a voice carried up from the street.

“Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap” Nimble whispered. The Countess came to her window, and looked down toward the street.

“NOW! Do it now!” Rathgar hissed.

Nimble drew the arrow back, and let it fly just as the Countess looked directly at him. She staggered under the impact, her mouth opening with a gasp, her eyes never leaving Nimble’s face.

“Crrrraaaap.” Nimble sighed.

“Let’s get out of here...” Rathgar said darkly. “We won’t be safe in town as long as she’s looking for you.”

Cupid’s Arrow

Those struck by this golden arrow (and failing a save vs spells) will fall hopelessly in love with the first person they see. The arrow becomes invisible when shot, causes no damage, and dissipates when it hits it’s target. The arrow has a -2 to hit, but it will always hit someone.
