Atop the Shoulders of Giants
Bow of Muscles
This bow appears to be compised of two flayed, humanoid arms which have been attached, at each shoulder, to a mithril grip. The hands of each arm stretch between them a mithril wire the thickness of a bowstring by pulling opposite directions on brass-knuckle-like attachments to either side of the wire. The arms relax when the bow is held at rest, and pull the string taught when it is being held at ready, and it is the arms which seem to provide the resistance necessary for the archer’s pull and release to send the arrow flying.
