Sources:
  • STUDY: Thinking about the yew shortbow, you think you could LEAN, POKE, PULL, and RUB it.
  • LEAN: You lean on your yew shortbow, thinking about your recent success in the field. While you're thinking of it, you carefully inspect the limbs of your shortbow for cracks.
  • POKE: You grab the bowstring of your yew shortbow 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 yew shortbow 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 limbs of your shortbow until they gleam.
