I've already posted on the RP board but I don't want their to be any confusion.  I'm going to be gone for the next one to two weeks taking my SOL's and Latin PALS.  I don't think this should cause any trouble but I just want to forewarn everybody.

Here is my rough draft for the Remusian bow.  I'm not going to mess around with its origin/history much yet and please remember that this is a work in progress.  Comments are welcome right now but I'm still playing around with it a bit.
3  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Remusian Bow on: 04 May 2010, 10:22:14
Description: The Remusian bow is a composite recurve bow that sands about 1 ped, 1 fore, 1 palmspan, and 9 nailsbreadths tall.  It is made from specially picked allicot wood and interspersed with a layer of wison tendon and thin strips of carteloreen bone.
Usage: The Remusian bow, as the name suggests, is mainly used by Remusians.  The bow has found itself in the hands of some of the members of the other ice tribes and even a few foreigners, but the Remusians remain the only people capable of producing it.  The Remusian bow is used mainly in battle because the loud noise it makes after it releases an arrow makes hunting rather difficult if you miss, but a few have still been known to hunt with it, relying on its long range.
Advantages:
-The Remusian bow is extremely long ranged, allowing the user to hit targets that would normally be out of reach to another bow.  It also projects the arrow at extremely fast speeds, allowing it to puncture through armor with ease.
Disadvanteges:
-It takes an immense amount of arm strength to pull the bowstring back, even more so than a regular bow.
-The Remusian bow has a confusing shape when it is unstrung, and many who are not experienced with stringing it usually string it backward, causing it to snap when it is used.
Fighting Style: The Remusian bow is a long ranged weapon that is mainly used in battle.  Those who prefer stealth generally try and avoid it due to the loud noise it makes when it is released.  It is usually used when the enemy is far away or obstructed by an obstacle.  However, the bow is strong enough and heavy enough to knock someone out if wielded as a club, but that is generally discouraged as it  can damage the bow.
Origin/History:
The Remusian bow was constructed by the Remusians and is still used by them to

Categorization: Bush

Overview: The blackberry bush is a small shrub like plant that is utilized by the Shendar for it’s many usefull properties.  It has dark green leaves that grow to be about two nailsbreadths and two grains long.  It is named after its berries which turn black when they are ripe.  It’s branches are covered in thorns that can grow to be seven nailsbreadths and three grains at their largest.  

Territory:
The blackberry bush is found in the northern areas of the Ráhaz-Dáth dessert on the southern part of the continent of Sarvonia.  It is usually found a good distance away from trees and other blackberry bushes so it does not have to constantly fight for sunlight and water found underneath the ground.  The Shendar also sometimes grow small patches of blackberry bushes near their campsites.  A few unsuccessful attempts have been made to transport the blackberry bush into other desert environments.

Usages:
The leaves of the blackberry bush when ground up and used in a medicinal tea can help alleviate the effects of heat stroke, while the bark can be chewed to reduce dehydration.  This is extremely useful to the Shendar who spend most of their lives in the desert under the blazing hot sun.  The berries when mixed with water can produce a dye that is commonly used on Shendar clothing and pottery.  The roots are poisonous and within an hour after being eaten the victim will continuously vomit for the next hour.

Reproduction:
During the months of Rising Sun and Burning Heavens it grows light violet berries that turn black as they begin to ripen.  These berries are usually carried off by animals are other forces scattering the seeds.  Under the right conditions these seeds are carried off and will grow into a thorny shoot within one month and will fully mature in half a year.

Myth/Lore/Origin:
I don’t want to mess around with this part yet.
