Advanced Ballista Bolt


Cost: 15 (wood) or 60 (metal) gp
Damage (Small):
Damage (Medium)1:
Weight2: 10 (wood) or 20 (metal) lbs
Type3: Piercing
HP4: 20
Hardness: 5 (wood) or 10 (metal)

1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.

These are well made ballista bolts created using advanced techniques. Though they are, in essence, huge sized crossbow bolts they cannot be used to their full potential in anything but a siege weapon. In huge crossbows, they act as normal huge crossbow ammo rather than advanced ballista bolts.

When loaded into a ballista, these advanced bolts ignore up to 5 points of hardness for wood bolts, and 10 points of hardness for metal bolts. The price is for one bolt.
