Missilefruit Bow
Bow, Composite Long

This composite longbow is expertly carved with four grooves along the sides of the bow. When wielded, two face the wielder and two face away. Both sets of grooves are equidistant from the center of the bow. Within each groove, a +2 arrow is securely fastened. The wielder may draw one of these arrows as a free action, but it must be fired in the same round or it loses its bonus.

The bow itself normally has a +3 bonus, plus doubled range. But it grows weaker as arrows are drawn and fired. After the first arrow is expended, either through firing it or through the arrow's bonus dissipating, the bow's bonus drops to +2. The next arrow renders it +1, and the third leaves it with only the doubled range. Once the fourth arrow is fired, even that disappears, rendering it a normal masterwork composite longbow.

When an arrow is removed, the bow begins growing a new one in its groove. After 24 hours, the arrow is ready to be fired and the bow regains some of its power. The doubled range returns first, then +1, +2, and finally +3 when all the arrows are replenished. All arrows need not be expended before the regrowth process starts.
