:: Order of the Bow Initiate ::


Icon: ir_ootbi
(PRESTIGE CLASS)
When asked, "What is Truth?", an initiate of the Order of the Bow picks up his bow, fires an arrow, and, without saying a word, lets his mastery of the weapon serve as the gauge of the archer's progress along the way. By learning the meditative art of the Way of the Bow, the archer improves his discipline, precision, and spirituality. Order of the Bow Initiates see their weapons as extensions of their being, and the use of a bow as a spiritual experience.
