This bow is as smooth and light as driftwood, yet as hard as a sturdy mast. It feels warm in your hands, as if one of its previous owners had just passed it to you. As you hold it, you can almost feel the sea spray on your cheeks and hear storm-whipped waves in your ears.

Once, Stormcaller belonged to a young navigator on a merchant ship in the Deadfire Archipelago. She had an almost preternatural gift for predicting the weather -- she could smell a storm brewing a day's journey away. On her final voyage, she detected a cyclone forming in their path. She instructed the captain to change course and seek shelter in a nearby strait, which he did. Unfortunately, a pirate ship was waiting there. The merchant vessel was boarded and its crew slain.

A lookout on the pirate ship Grinning Maralina took Stormcaller from the captured merchant ship. He used Stormcaller to fire on enemy ships from the crow's nest. While the Maralina approached, he could set flame to enemy sails or peg fleeing ships with rope arrows. However, when the captain began to look with envy on the marvelous bow, he jumped ship, sold Stormcaller, and became a fisherman.

Stormcaller eventually found its may to Fairhope, a port town on one of the easternmost islands of the Deadfire Archipelago. Fairhope found itself besieged when the harbormaster turned away the Seafang, a notorious pirate ship. The harbormaster stationed archers on the cliffs around town, and while their arrows kept the Seafang from docking, they couldn't drive the pirate ship away. As a result, the Seafang prowled just out of range of the archers' arrows, close enough to discourage merchant and supply ships.

As the siege stretched on, the harbormaster called for more archers, promising a reward to any who could land an arrow on the Seafang. One young Glamfellen came forward, but when the harbormaster saw her hunting bow, he laughed, explaining that she'd need a top-quality longbow at the least. But she insisted, and when the harbormaster led her to the cliff, she called a storm that struck the Seafang and churned the waves around it. The harbormaster watched as the Seafang sank before his eyes. When the wreck washed ashore, the Glamfellen drew Stormcaller and plunked an arrow into the broken mast.
