This bow has the colour of dark rain clouds, and the smell of wet ozone.

Electrocution brand
Randomly spawns rain clouds


Based solely on its base stats, the storm bow is an excellent weapon; a +8, +8 longbow can inflict massive damage in the right hands. On top of that, its brand is one of the most desirable possible choices for a ranged weapon. Just be mindful of the fact that it occasionally generates rain clouds around you, which may turn dry terrain to shallow water and, eventually, deep water. This is a rare effect, however, and unlikely to have much impact on your gameplay, as the affected tiles will revert back to their previous state in less than 100 turns. Just keep an eye out on the rain, to avoid getting slowed or blocked by the water during a critical move.
