This ash bow is carved with silvery runes and wrapped with tattered blue and silver ribbons. Whenever an arrow is nocked, a soft, cold light can be seen just behind the arrowhead from all angles—nothing to reveal it, but an eerie glow to those nearby. Each attack with the bow plays a single, clear note with vibrato as the arrow is loosed, followed by a second note as it strikes, forming a coda to the attack.
Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn the bow's Name.
Effect: The bow is Damage Step 6. A glyph appears on the arrowhead as the arrow is nocked. It disappears if the arrow goes unfired, but is permanent if fired.
Thread Rank Two
Effect: True air infuses the wielder’s actions, allowing them to ready or stow the bow as a Simple action.
Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn about the glyphs on the arrows.
Effect: The wielder gains the Moonlit Toccata ability. As a Simple action for 1 Strain, the glow around the arrow intensifies, surrounding it and streaming back toward the wielder. The wielder gains +2 to their Attack tests with the bow until the end of the round.
Thread Rank Four
Effect: When Moonlit Toccata is active, the runes along the bow glow with a cool, soft light. The wielder can also spend 1 Strain when activated to gain +2 to the associated Damage tests.
Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn about the runes and what they represent.
Deed: The owner must have a thread tied to Moonlit Crescendo.
Effect: When Moonlit Toccata is active, the wielder can spend an additional Karma Point on the Attack test. Doing so causes an additional note to be played, creating a distinctive leitmotif.
Thread Rank Six
Effect: When Moonlit Toccata is used, each attack builds an aria with mounting intensity. A successful associated Attack test adds one “count.” For 1 Strain, the wielder gains an additional +1 to Attack tests with the bow while using Moonlit Toccata per count. If the wielder misses, the count is reduced to 0.
