An Iklis Sniper’s Longbow that he has named “Angela” is Grond the halfogre’s favorite weapon. An Iklis longbow looks like a technologically advanced version of a compound bow, with limbs that collapse into the body and can be extended with the flick of a wrist. The bowstring itself is virtual, made of energy, and the weapon generates its own ammunition as it is fired. The sniper’s variant features a lock-on mechanism that actually allows the archer to hit a target behind cover or around a corner.
How Grond obtained this rare and valuable weapon, and who precisely the “Iklis” are, is a story yet to be told.
