This bow appears crudely made. The knotty length of wood has numerous stumps where twigs were pruned away, and living leaves still spring from it. In spite of its apparent poor quality, the bow has clearly been enhanced with nature magic. It is rumored the wild elves of the Chondalwood make good use of such weapons, especially against invading orcs and ogres.
