Ranging from small and delicate shortbows to enormous longbows to compact and heavy crossbows, Projectile weaponry uses Ammunition to deliver its damage (Arrows for bows, Quarrels for crossbows and Bullets for slings). The weapon itself does lend to the effect in combat however and Projectile weapons use the wielders dexterity rather than strength meaning certain Races have a distinct advantage with them. They have the greatest armour penetration ability of any weapon and Rangers are the masters of Projectile weaponry, though some Rogues use them to deliver their poisons. Projectile weapons do tend to be weighty and their Ammunition oft necessitates the carrying of a quiver.

Note: Projectiles do not have a Damage Type, that being the province of their Ammunition.

Races with modifiers to this skill include Centaurs (+10), Drow (+5), Elves (+5) and Halflings (+10).

Certain magical effects and Items have been known to grant a temporary +5 bonus too. (Q.I)
