Shortbow Composite

Arco de madera

Description: You
need at least two hands to use a bow, regardless of its size. You can use a
composite shortbow while mounted. All composite bows are made with a particular
Strength rating (that is, each requires a minimum Strength modifier to use with
proficiency). If your Strength bonus is lower than the strength rating of the
composite bow, you can’t effectively use it, so you take a –2 penalty on
attacks with it. The default composite shortbow requires a Strength modifier
of +0 or higher to use with proficiency. A composite shortbow can be made with
a high strength rating to take advantage of an above-average Strength score;
this feature allows you to add your Strength bonus to damage, up to the maximum
bonus indicated for the bow. Each point of Strength bonus granted by the bow
adds 75 gp to its cost. If you have a penalty for low Strength, apply it to
damage rolls when you use a composite shortbow.

For purposes of Weapon
Proficiency, Weapon Focus, and similar feats, a composite shortbow is treated
as if it were a shortbow.
