| A long, light tube, open at both ends, through which various types of needles are propelled by puffs of breath at enemies. It makes very little noise.
"Along the Upper Caiary-Uaupes blow-guns are made from the stems of a variety of palm (Iriartea setigea Martius)... The Indian selects two stems of such sizes that the smaller will exactly fit within the larger. After these stems have been carefully dried and the pith cleared out with a long rod, the bore is made smooth by drawing back and forth through it a little bunch of tree-fern roots. The smaller stem is then inserted in the larger, so that one will serve to correct any crookedness that may exist in the other. The wooden mouth-piece is then fitted to one end, and about three and one half feet from it, a boar's tooth is fastened on the gun by some gummy substance, for a sight. Over the outside the maker winds spirally a strip of the dark shiny bark of a creeper which gives it an ornamental finish, and his blow-gun is complete."
A blowgun is a simple ranged weapon whose use is governed by the Throwing skill. It is a long, light tube, open at both ends. It is not intended to cause much damage; its main use is to fire branded needles from afar, inflicting a wide variety of status effects. It makes very little noise, making it an excellent stealth weapon, and with curare-tipped needles, it can take down even strong monsters. The only brand blowguns can have is speed.
It is the only ranged weapon capable of being fired while trapped in a throwing net.
