Equipment, a part.
... as i planned, i bought a lighter crossbow, from an elf - Alvaniel.
for now it's only well-made cherry, but once she has redwood - i am first on the list.
as a part of a deal, she will buy-back cherry crossbow as she will sell me redwood one.
... she also added some cherry-bolts tipped with steel, including a quiver of sixty exceptionally well made.
it's not only special bolts i carry, for there are 'fletchette' bolts - useful against evil humans & drow elves mostly.

P.S. Crossbow & bolts cost me 1200 gold pieces so far.
P.S.S. ... i carry a crossbow for saving spells when lesser foes are met ... with a 'Flaming Weapon' spells it's a quick work usually.
