Mages Bow, Elven (AGE system)

Looks like a well crafted elven bow. In the hands on a non-mage the bow acts as a nornal long bow with a magical +1 to accuracy.

In the hands of a mage it becomes a focus for arcane blast. As the mage pulls the string back they can simultaneous cast arcane blast. A arrow formed of pure magic will appear.

Firing the bow draws 5 magic from the mage. The arcane blast gains the range of the bow and doubles willpower for purposes of damage. Spell stunts apply.

Special abilities:
Muscles of Iron*
No need for weapons*
Fleet footed*

Power shifts:
(3) Strength*
(2) Resilience*

* all are tied to frenzy (Hulk form).

This actually looks pretty solid in that both explorer and Intelligent with gain mr. Banner a lot of intellect based skills....all of which are useless once he rages.

Power shifts:
(2)Power: bash when using hammer.
