Smack Self – Rease bow instead of string, do 1d6 dmg, stunned for that many rounds.


Launch –    You heave your weapon into next week.  Multiply your strength

   by the max range of your weapon.  That is the search DC

   to find it (modified by circumstances)  This search

   takes an hour.


Random –    Randomly pick a target adjacent to intended target.  Reroll

   attack against that target.

   or right by 5ft.  If there is a target along that

   line, make an attack roll against that target.


Lost –    Weapon is lost.  You get one search check against the DC to

   find your weapon.  This search takes 10 minutes, -2

   rounds per point that your search exceeds the DC.

   to find your missing weapon.

   restring it, provided you have an extra string.
