Treasures of NeoExodus: Protectorate Twilight Bow (PFRPG) $1.39 $1.04
Publisher: LPJ Design
by Thilo G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/17/2012 05:12:45
The latest addition to the Treasures of NeoExodus-line is 4 pages long, 1 page SRD and ~1/2 a page advertisement, leaving us with 2.5 pages of content, so what exactly is this bow?

Created by the Arman Protectorate during the Twilight War as a magical weapon to eventually mass-produce, the twilight bow is a prime example of misspent military budget - not because of its undoubted effectiveness, but because of its utter economical unfeasibility. Mechanically, the bow is a +4 seeking mighty composite longbow that draws inspiration from modern longbows and treats wielders as if they had a +4 str-bonus, even if the bonus would otherwise be lower. The bow also has a range increment of 200 ft, ignores the first 5 points of hardness and 10 points of object's DR due to its power, with all of these effects being due to superior engineering, not supernatural or magical effects. The pdf also provides a short description to along with the awesome artwork as well as item-cards for the bow.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are top-notch this time around - I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to a 2-column standard in full color and has been revised to reflect a new, even more beautiful layout than the older NeoExodus-pdfs. However, the now parchment-style background also means that this pdf is less printer-friendly than older NeoExodus pdfs and I hope LPJr Design will address this by releasing a printer-friendly version in the future. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length. This is a first in the series for me, since this weapon not only has an awesome artwork (a given for any LPJr Design product, really), it also features interesting mechanical properties that could be the source of whole adventures - Think about it: Players hunting for the bow to replicate its non-magical properties by reverse-engineering its creation - or preventing a competing group/general/nation from getting their hand on this technology! Awesome! Especially since you can still just use the weapon as a cool magical bow. In the end, I only have one gripe with this pdf and that is the lack of a printer-friendly version, which makes me settle for a final verdict of 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5 for the purpose of this platform. I really hope the series can keep this mechanical/editorial level and does not revert to this items predecessor's mistakes.

Endzeitgeist out.
