“Though I find your concerns on the subject of legality and range objectively valid if perhaps exaggerated, I counter with the notion that mere efficaciousness in the production of the deceased is not the only concern in the design of a weapon, but one ought may desire the dispatchement of a foe from afar without the armed man beside him being any the wiser” -from Tadro of the Delve, in a trade discussion with the Rangers of Leovigild.
A springbolt is a type of Dweomspring-powered projectile weapon invented by the Delvers and most infamously popularized by the ranks of the Unkneeling, but also commonly seen in use by privateers. It is essentially a low-profile crossbow, lacking the actual “bow” portion and using a dweomspring in the stock to launch bolts. They are considerably lighter and easier to use than most traditional crossbows, and take less time to load and are more reliable than contemporary firearms. However, they are expensive, and there are inherent risks in using dweomspring, as if one is snapped it can be lethal to the wielder.
