Crossbow was a ranged weapon consisting of a bow mounted on a stock that shooted bolts.

Appearance Edit

They were smaller and less awkward to carry than a bow, although they were heavier. They had a reduced range, but more power than an arrow, and could penetrate armor at close range. The heavy crossbow was a larger, heavier version of the regular crossbow. It had more power, but took more time to reload as well. [1]

History Edit

Inventor Edit

Abd al-Zhayn was the inventor of the crossbow during the rule of the Sultan Yusef al Kedar al Rassulii in the Burning Sands. [2]

Rokugan Edit


An Oyumi

It was most commonly used by peasants, bandits and the Yobanjin tribes. [3] The rokugani called it Oyumi. While this word was orginally given to a siege weapon of similar design, it had been adopted for the infantry version as well. [4]
