Arc Arrow of Alria

“You saw what happened last time! Give me the arrow.”

“No! I was dead-accurate with my shot, and we wouldn’t have been seen if you hadn’t made all that noise! Now give me my bow back.”

Feris sat on a large rock and cleared his throat “If I may-”

“NO!” Rathgar and Nimble said in unison.

Feris sighed.

“We only have one arrow, one shot, it has to count.” Rathgar argued.

“And just like last time, I’m still the better shot.” Nimble argued.

“They’re getting closer” Allianora warned. “If you keep this up, they’ll hear you too.”

Rathgar fumed. “Fine! Don’t miss.”

Nimble smiled as he snatched the bow, and rushed to the parapet. Drawing the arrow back he took aim at the approaching squad of chaos knights. Their elaborate armor jingled softly in the distance. With a soft exhale the arrow flew...

Passing through the first line of knights and embedding into the ground at the foot of the warrior with the most elaborate helmet.

“Fan-fracking-tastic. You missed!” Rathgar hissed.

“I didn’t” Nimbles smile widened.

With a crack the sky flashed, and the screaming started.

Arc Arrow of Alria

These jagged tipped arrows have a single thin copper wire winding from the steel tip all the way to the notch. When fired into a target it will cause 1d8+3 points of damage. When fired into the ground, everyone within 10’ will suffer 3d8+3 points of electrical damage (save vs wands for half).
