Magistrate Clarification- Bows

Post by fingers630 » 2016-06-09

It has come up that a wording discrepancy has led people to believe that it is ok to block arrows and javelins with a bow. Current Rules:

You may not use a melee weapon in combat while holding a bow; you must drop the bow before using another weapon. You may
never block with a bow. Participants blocking with bows will lose their arching privileges.


Javelins may also be blocked, caught, or deflected as long as this is done to the shaft of the javelin.


___
This clarification is to add the following wording to the section on bows, closing this grey area of block vs deflect.

You may not use a melee weapon in combat while holding a bow; you must drop the bow before using another weapon. You may
never block or deflect with a bow, including any missile weapon. Participants blocking with bows will lose their arching privileges.
