A shipboard ballista is
essentially a Huge heavy
crossbow that is fixed in place. Its size makes it
hard for most creatures to aim it; thus, a Medium creature takes a 4 penalty
on attack rolls and a Small creature takes a 6 penalty. It takes a creature
smaller than Large two full-round actions to reload the ballista after firing.
A shipboard ballista has a swiveling mount, and is usually placed near the bow
of the ship. The cost of the ballista includes the mount.
