Tuesday Magic Item – The Harvest Moon Bow

13 April, 2010

The archer never gave his name, he arrived at the height of the snow ghost attacks and he left as soon as the spring grasses began to green.  The villagers remembered his beautiful bow more than his face.   It was also remarked how the fields of the three households that had shown him hospitality when he first arrived were blessed with a bountiful harvest that fall.

Harvest Moon Bow

This weapon is deceptively simple, a self bow made of moon white wood with a pale silver grain.  When the bow in strung, the bowstring transforms into solid moonlight, pure and unbreakable until cut or unstrung.

Its most basic powers is that it confers low-light vision on its wielder and that it is a +1 longbow of distance that will match the user’s Strength bonus of up to +5.

Once per day, when the bow is touched to a tree at dusk, the next morning at dawn, that tree will have sprouted three wooden arrows, fletched with leaves.  These arrow are masterwork but when launched by the Harvest Moon Bow, they gain the ghost touch and undead bane qualities.  Only 27 of these arrows may be in existence at one time, attempting to create more simply fails.
Three times over the course of the spring season, the wielder may fire one of the created arrows in a high arc under the moonlight into a field.  The field will be blessed with increased growth throughout the year (treat as plant growth – enrichment option).
