STUDY: Thinking about the heavy crossbow, you think you could LEAN, POKE, PULL, and RUB it.

LEAN: You lean on the tiller of your crossbow, with the prod resting on the ground. You take the opportunity to inspect the release nut so that it spins freely.
POKE: You grab the bowstring of your heavy crossbow and pull it back to full draw. Taking aim at a nearby target you release it with a loud *snap*!
PULL: You grab the bowstring of your heavy crossbow and give it an experimental pull. Utterly unsatisfied, you tighten the string at each nock until the draw is correct.
RUB: You grab a cloth and buff the tiller of your crossbow until it gleams.
