Auctioneer's Notes

Auctioneer Mahilin says, "I have one more bow that will draw your spirit energy into ammunition."
Auctioneer Mahilin exclaims, "A short bow this time!"
Auctioneer Mahilin says, "Correction, this bow draws upon mana."
Auctioneer Mahilin says, "You cannot dual load with it."
Auctioneer Mahilin says, "I am unable to test it out to see if one who doesn't have a magical bone in their body can use it."
Auctioneer Mahilin says, "It does work for non magic users."
Auctioneer Mahilin asks, "Anymore interest?"


The alerce shortbow is imbued with special properties created by Lograr, renowned Gnome enchanter. The distinguished artisan derived inspiration for many of his mystical incantations from observations of natural phenomena in the surrounding environment during his many expeditions.

There is no documentation on what inspired Lograr to develop the energy bow. Instead, only rumors have filtered down through history. One verbal account is that Lograr saw a falling star and was inspired to create a weapon based on its appearance. Other accounts mention silver fish darting through a stream and another fireworks.

Regardless of the origin of his idea, Lograr's enchanting did have a side effect. Any enchanting always drained energy of some sort from the weapon's user. Lograr was never able to prevent this and was even remarked to have said that it was only logical that the weapon functioned in that manner. However, through much experimenting, he was able to direct the type of energy drained and created versions of the weapon for each type of drained energy.
