2The majority of these Exceptional quality bows are made by Master Elven bowyers. They are normally obtained as gifts from the elves and are rarely given outside their culture. To string or draw a Strength Bow, the character's strength bonus must match or exceed the damage bonus of the bow.

3These finely crafted crossbows are are usually referred to as Dwarven Crossbows. The secret of their construction is known only to the most skilled Dwarven crossbow makers and they are always Exceptional. They have a foot strap and hand claw to assist in drawing the bow back. A character must have a strength bonus equal to or greater than the damage bonus of the crossbow to reload it normally. If a player has less than the required strength, the reload time for the crossbow is increased by one move action for each point the user lacks.
