Aura Moderate evocation [good; fire]; CL 10th;
Slot —; Price 72,800 gp; Weight

This laminated bone bow is covered in silvered runes containing blessings to the ancient elven gods and promises of fire to all enemies. The hand guards are wrapped with a finely braided leather that is a shade darker than the laminated bone. The bowstring is made of pale horsehair, braided in pairs of eight.

This bow is a holy weapon that is imbued with holy power. This power makes the weapon good-aligned and thus bypasses the corresponding damage reduction. It deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against all creatures of evil alignment. It bestows one permanent negative level on any evil creature attempting to wield it. The negative level remains as long as the weapon is in hand and disappears when the weapon is no longer wielded. This negative level cannot be overcome in any way (including by restoration spells) while the weapon is wielded.[1]

Upon command, the arrows this bow fires are sheathed in fire that deals an extra 1d6 points of fire damage on a successful hit. The fire does not harm the wielder. The effect remains until another command is given.[2]

In addition to all the above, this bow does +3 to hit and damage.
