Ruins of Adventure
A plain wooden shortbow, the shaft cracked and pitted with wear and age.
This shortbow looks ancient, the wood cracked, pitted, and even splitting in places. Despite its appearance it seems as strong as ever. When an arrow is knocked and the bow drawn, the bow, string, and arrow all glow with brilliant, cracking white electricity.
This bow functions as a normal shortbow for range and proficiency. Any arrow fired from this bow is accompanied by a booming crack of thunder, dealing an additional 2d6 points of thunder damage to the target and deafening the wielder for 1 round (no save). A target struck by the arrow must make a Strength save (DC 13) or be knocked prone.
The light and noise from the bow immediately gives away the wielders position when it is drawn, negating any attempts to attack with surprise.
