Ask Wizards12/27/2006


Q: On 12/11, we announced our D&D Cartoon DVD Giveaway. Each day, we asked a new trivia questions for folks to answer and be entered in a chance to win a copy of the DVD. We asked the third question in Vicious Venues: The Spinning Mirror, asking about magical bows:

What is the name of Cattie-Brie’s magic bow?

A: The answer we were looking for: Taulmaril (the Heartseeker).

As noted, Taulmaril is styled in similar fashion to the magic bow possessed by D&D Cartoon's Hank the ranger. As part of the D&D Cartoon DVD, Wizards of the Coast produced Beneath the Blade of Sun Mountain, which statted out each of the main characters (including Venger!). How does Hank's bow appear?

Energy Bow

Price: 22,600 gp
Body Slot: — (held)
Caster Level: 6th
Aura: Moderate; (DC 18) evocation
Activation: See below
Weight: 3 lb.

Simply drawing your fingers in the air near this finely crafted bow causes it to be strung with an arrow of glimmering energy.

Hank’s energy bow acts as a +2 composite longbow that accommodates a user of any Strength. Although unstrung, it fires arrows of pure magical force that deal 2d6 points of damage. As they are force effects, the arrows do not suffer a miss chance when used against incorporeal creatures.The bow can be used to fire normal or magic arrows, but in such cases the bow does not confer its damage due to force.When drawn, the energy bow sheds light like a torch.

In addition, Hank can use the bow to make power shots.To do so, before making attack rolls, choose a number to subtract from your attack rolls up to Hank’s base attack and add this same number to the damage dealt by the bow with any attack that hits. The penalty on attack rolls and bonus on damage rolls last until Hank’s next turn.

Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, magic missile.
Cost to Create: 11,500 gp, 888 XP, 23 days.
