The Dwarven crossbow is a fierce ranged weapon which is able to fire a steel arrow over a distance of one mile. This unearthly power stems from the rune-engraved handle which is responsible for the great dwarven magic involved. Manufactured by the dwarves of San Satanos, these weapons are sold by their creators themselves and many heroes journey to this mysterious town just to buy one. The crossbow itself needs careful care and attention when not in use for despite its power, it is a delicate magical object. It is thought that the dwarves were forced to develop these weapons two thousand years ago during the Great Elf-dwarf war which resulted eventually in the creation of Beerburgh but not enough evidence has been discovered yet to definitively prove this.
