Description

Kerim Shah had unslung the powerful Turanian bow that killed at five hundred paces, and the Irakzai looked to their own lighter and less lethal bows.
~ The People of the Black Circle

This bow is made in the Hyrkanian style, using different materials to strengthen different areas of the bow and allowing it to be shorter than a longbow. For Hyrkanians, who spend most of their lives shooting from horseback, this is a necessity.

Hyrkanians are widely considered the best archers in the world, raised to the hunt and the art of shooting from horseback. Their bows, however, are not as well made as those of the Shemites, who have spent centuries perfecting the art.

In trained hands, bows are lethal weapons that can bring down a foe from afar. A large part of the versatility of the bow comes from the arrows used in battle.
