Stork snarled as another arrow whizzed by his head. The sorcerer glared into the gloom, unable to tell exactly where the arrow came from, only a general direction.
‘Spell?’ Vistis the Blue Mage asked.
‘Something that will….’ an arrow to the shoulder cut the wizard short. Stork groaned in pain and dropped to one knee. ‘Let’s just head for cover!’
The two spellcasters ran in a haphazard manner to avoid the next two arrows and seek shelter from the hidden archer.
Created by wily sorcerers to thwart the keen ears of elves, halflings and other demi-humans, Silent Arrows are a boon to archer-assassins and others that do not want their location to be easily determined after loosing an arrow.
Benefit: Unlike normal arrows, Silent Arrows make very little sound when fired, there is no typical ‘twang’ of a bowstring when one of these arrows is loosed from a bow. Humans and dwarfs can only determine the source of a Silent Arrow on a result of ‘1’ on a d6 roll, elves, halflings, gnomes and similar creatures can tell which direction a Silent Arrow came from on result of ‘1-2’ on d6 roll. These arrows are very valuable obviously and most archers try not to lose Silent Arrows. These arrows typically come in a quiver of 15-20.
Usable by: Anyone who can fire a bow.
