Dawnguard NOT Required
Dragonborn NOT Required

This mod is a collection of hybrid recurve longbows. I tried to make the recurve longbows serve a different purpose then the regular bows that came with skyrim. These recurve longbows have greater distance and have a greater sneak attack multiplier. The drawback is that drawing the recurve longbows takes a lot longer than vanilla bows. This mod doesn't just add a bunch of new bows you can simply craft. Some are craftable others must be bought or found. I have tried to balance them in with skyrim so they are not over powerful and should seamlessly fit in with everything else. The recurve longbows will show up in the world of skyrim based off the player’s current level and skills.

If you like this mod PLEASE don't forget to ENDORSE!

- Longbows can shoot 50% further then standard bows
- Do more damage than existing bows.
- 25% better zoom after eagle eye is acquired.
- Will increase your sneak critical damage from 2 times to 2.5 times. If you have the deadly aim perk it is increased from 3 times to 4 times.
- The downside to each bow is that the pullback time is very high and shouldn’t be used in close combat.
- While zooming will drain your stamina much faster then vanilla bows.
- Recurve Longbows are also louder then vanilla bows making it hard to pull off multiple critical shots
- I have introduced several bows intro the game and will randomly appear just like any other bow in the game.

== Quests ==

Boxed Artifact - This quest when completed unlocks the Dwarven Longbow. To start this quest you must be far enough along in "Discerning the Transmundane" to enter blackreach and must have completed "Taking Care of Business". Next when you obtain level 40 a courier should find you and the quest will begin.

== Help Chest == Troubleshooting ==

If the Courier won't show up to start the "Boxed Artifact" Quest don't fret the Help Chest can help. If you having a issue go to Faendal's House in Riverwood and look for the Gold Chest on the cupboard and activate it and follow the prompts. There is a picture of the chest its gold. This add-on is mainly for peoples save games that have been broken by so many embedded scripts.

If you went to Northwatch Keep and couldn't find Solonor, or got the wrong level version of Solonor don't fret the Help Chest can help. If you having a issue go to Faendal's House in Riverwood and look for the Orange Chest on the cupboard and activate it and follow the prompts. There is a picture of the chest its orange.
