    Crafting roll time! If the number of dice are wrong, here's the order I added them so dice can be removed.
    Agility: +8
    Quality tools: +2 for exceptional
    3x normal time: +2
    Drive (gotta have the best bow to help be the best archer): +1
    Probably will use a Luck point but lets see what the rolls are first.

    (13d10)[3][9][10][6][4][1][4][9][6][8][6][8][10](84) TN8 -> Six successes! Guess the Luck reroll can't really add anything more.

    "Them" are two groups. One is on foot, around 15 people. Second one seems like horsemen - not many, but further away (double the distance).
    (7d10)[5][6][6][9][3][1][9](39) TN7 -> 2 successes = 200 yards

    What can I make of the groups? Armed? Extra long weapons? Bows? Disciplined troops? Traders? Monks singing "Pie Iesu domine, dona eis requiem"? Movement speed? Horsemen keeping their distance from the first group or catching up? Important Intel for a scout to come back with.

    EDIT: From here
    Since as I remember you need 6 successes for a longbow, it's almost finished. However, this will require another roll, if you want it to be fine, it will require at least 3+ successes. Also, the materials roll (1 net success) will allow you to reroll one die in case it fails.
    Had 5 on the first roll, 6 on the second. What did I end up with?

    Had to wait for the distance to be able to answer those.

    These two groups are the first ones you've met on this road. Mainly you were meeting just individuals or couples - people living in the forests, or travelers.

    Nazir is quite sure the first group are just farmers - some of them pull wheelbarrows, there are few mules, people carrying children. They have some tools - pitchforks, hoes - and few staffs, and Nazir also thinks he saw few bows.

    The second group is definitely armed - but the conditions (setting sun) are not ideal. He is sure he saw few spears, helmets, but no plate armour.

    The first group has 25 members - maybe more if you count the kids - and the second one consists of 6 horsemen. The first is on foot - trying their best to get a good speed with the mules and children, but failing. The horsemen don't hurry - their horses are trotting - but it's obvious they are gaining on the farmers.

    The farmers will be on group's position in about 5 minutes. At the same time the horsemen catch up with them.

    Oh, and nobody is singing

    On one hand, I have just found a table, in which a longbow requires 24 successes to craft.

    However, taking into account how well you rolled, and that you still have some Luck...

    Spoiler: Nazir's bow
    Show

    It was... exceptional.

    From first moment when Nazir pulled the string he knew the weapon would be special - and while it could have been even better, had he access to the rare woods of the elven forests, he knew that this was a masterpiece on its own.

    The string sang when he let it go.

    He already had a target in the warehouse, so it was just matter of taking the arrows...

    ...and he was able to place each of them right into the middle of the target.

    Normally, he had to take some time to "know" a bow - but this one responded without any problems, sending off the arrows with speed and precision unmatched...

    Feel free to name the bow.

    Prep time: normal
    ATN 6
    Effective ST: 5-6
    DMG: ST+3 (max 9)
    Armor-piercing (+1 DMG against any armour)

    Yeah, the different rulebooks vary greatly. If you want to change it now or later I'll go with the flow. That is a sweet bow! I'll spend the Luck to balance things out. Guess a bit of the elven magic in his blood came through from all that focused work!

    My recruit is getting around to start reading about the game/system. I told him if still interested after those basics we'll get Laco involved (with the new recruit thread).

    Combat question: When using Beat, Expulsion, or Disarm, which ATN do you use, cut or thrust, or is either ok?

    Updating the tables with Luck gone, I realized I only have 4 SAs now. Time to add another one. Some ideas, looking for feedback:

    1) Destiny (unknown?) Possibly dealing with the Riddle of Archery? I'm curious of that path, although I know it is very long term. Could also lead to a replacement of Sinkrin as an enemy later on (a competitor for the secrets) or just adding another minor enemy. Blends with his Drive to be the best archer.

    2) Passion #2: "Civilization is worth defending." In hindsight, this has been a part of Nazir since enlisting, including being a lead scout against Gerric's forces, not making plans to go murder Sinkrin, and not wanting to abandon Zhengar now with enemies on two fronts.

    No problem - the luck balances things out. And I like the description you provided!

    As for the recruit - let me know. I am able to get him into game easily at the moment.

    For most weapons I use cut ATN with beat, DTN with expulsion, for offensive Disarm it's cut ATN, for defensive DTN.

    For Bind & Strike I also use cut, except for Rapier.

    If you want Destiny, you can set up your path or I can do it - and let you find out through play. "Slay a dragon with one arrow" is a good destiny - but beware, destinies can be taken as metaphoric sometimes...

    Regarding passion... I'm thinking if it wouldn't be better modeled as oath...

    RolandDeschain is a go if you want to set that up. He still has a lot of the rules to go through, like we did.

    For when we get to it, dice check: Long shot at horseman
    +7 Proficiency
    +7 Aim
    +1 Drive
    +1 Oath
    -5 Extreme Range (120-300 yards)
    -1 Target moving towards me
    -1 Target moving
    Does trot count as fast moving on a horse? If so another -1
    Downhill bonus?

    Does AP of bow combine with AP of bodkin arrows?

    I was checking the Group Stats with ppl's attributes and noticed differences, both in terms of base scores (totaling more than chargen allows but could be from purchases?) and the calculated stats (round down right?). Could people check their sheets and let me know please? I'll then update the group stats. I'm happy to do so.

    Destiny- is "Solve the Riddles of Archery" too much and/or too soon?

    Trot counts as normal movement. "Attacker above defender" in melee counts as +2 dice. However, this being ranged combat... count the range as one lower.

    It's never "too soon" for Destiny. It takes its own time and can wait.

    But it's "too much" - you can't solve all the riddles, because there is only one riddle...and uncountable answers (currently around 20 and adding) and finding each would be even above elven lifetime. If we can find a way how to limit it to several...

    "To find the answers hidden in the song of bowstring and live to tell the tale to his grandchildren"...?

    If they ride on, you'll have 3 rounds in front of you. On third, they will be at the peasants.
    Also, on fourth behind trees - if they don't stay at the peasants.
    Sorry, need clarification. With quick hands I can fire every other round. With aiming, every 3rd round. Am I now ready to fire with just proficiency and on their 4th turn from now they'll be on the farmers (and out of my sight)? If so, looks like I can get off 1 quick shot and 1 aimed shot if we can't steer them towards us. If I'm already aimed with the 2nd arrow then I can get two aimed shots off just before they get hidden by tree. I'm thinking the former option.

    One of the men rose in his saddle and pointed at Nazir, shouting set of short commands - the others quickly spread and continued to ride. This time up the hill, towards Nazir.
    Without a map we need some info. Time to get to me, distance, relative distance for the others (are they between Nazir and the bandits or Nazir and the farmers)? I have a round to draw, so at most I'll say something to the group then wait for the others to act before the bandits get to move again. Is there something distinctive about their leader that I can call out and where is he in the group (far left, second from right?)? Is the rocky hill steep and slowing down the horses? My next target depends on everyone's layout. If I'm the left flank then I'm probably going after the far left bandit.

    Let's do it this way: decide whether you focus on watching the situation or shooting.

    If it's shooting, make a "terrain roll" - roll any amount of dice (maximum is your PER) vs. Tactics or 8 (whichever is lower) and I'll tell you more. The dice come from your MP - so you'll have to aim to compensate if you want to fire. Remember that it's all quite hectic so it will all depend on your skill and on how much you "don't focus" on archery.

    If it's watching the situation, roll PER as above, but you'll have to succeed on REF/7 roll to prep the shot in time.

    One success will give you one answer.

    And in the meantime I will draw a sketch of the situation.

    Need to have the others ready and positioned so I'll take the later option hoping I understand it correctly. If I fail the REF roll I get delayed a round, or won't get a shot in at all before they get to me? With the last shot's distance plus now on rocky ground hoping they are slowed some. Either way let me know when I'm up for shooting again. I'm kinda hogging the scene and want to let the others get involved.

    Per/Tactics: (7d10)[4][8][7][6][9][2][7](43) TN 8
    Ref/7: (6d10)[7][8][9][9][9][3](45) TN 7
