Name Arrow
Launcher shortbow / longbow
Base damage 7
A long shafted projectile intended to be shot with a shortbow or longbow, fletched with feathers at one end and a point at the other.

"I saw in a hall an arrow pointing the way and I thought that this inoffensive symbol had once been a thing of iron, an inescapable and fatal projectile that pierced the flesh of men and lions and clouded the sun at Thermopylae and gave Harald Sigurdarson six feet of English earth forever."

-Jorge Luis Borges, _Mutations_. 1960.
