The Well-Made Darkwood Longbow.
Rumours were that very limited supply of very rare wood was found by Norwick's Crafters' Union, the Darkwood.
i think Druids were not so happy when they cut it down, but Crafter's Union also plants wood & cares - so they let them be.
A while ago heard from Kessmiah, ex-slave of Oscuran Kursk Family that famous, best bowmaker in Narfell - Ginger B. Tealeaf - soon will be selling bows made from this wood.
Made some arrangements, wrote letters to the Ginger & Z of Norwick's Crafting hall, in an attempt to buy one of very limited supply of this bow.
Today got a letter from Master Z that there's one available in Norwick's Crafting hall, it's price 20 000 gold pieces - very high, but well worth in this case.
It's unarguably one of the best bows in the land, despite it's nonmagical nature.
Not thinking much went to Bank, withdrew all of my coins, sold all my gems & most of my scrolls to Hemrod, barely reached that amount.
After a nervous boat trip south arrived in Norwick.
They still had the bow, now i am happy owner of it.
