Bridge Building Arrow

Rare Arrow

 

Crossing that bridge when you come to it has never been so easy! Upon firing this arrow, a mighty rope bridge is conjured from the point directly in front of you to where the arrow lands. The bridge is 5 feet wide and supports up to 2,000 pounds. It has an AC of 14 and 200 hit points. After 10 minutes, the bridge burns behind you.

Flarrow

Uncommon Arrow

 

For the ranger with a flare for the dramatic. Once fired, this arrow ignites in a bright colorful flash, easily visible in the sky. After reaching its peak, the arrow explodes and is viewable for miles, depending on the weather and time of day. If the flarrow instead hits a creature, it explodes dealing an extra 1d6 fire damage. If not already stated by the GM, roll a d6 to determine the color of the flarrow: (1. Red 2. Blue 3. Green 4. Purple 5. Silver 6. Gold). And remember, all’s flare in love and war.

Spell-Storing Arrow

Legendary Arrow

 

For the touch-and-go ranger, a spell with a range of touch and a casting time of one action can be cast into this arrow. The spell activates when the arrow hits a creature and if a saving throw is required, it uses the spell save DC of the caster at the time they cast the spell. If concentration is required, the creature that fires the arrow maintains the concentration. The spell can be any level, and if a second spell is cast into the arrow, it overwrites the first.

Stingin’ Buzzer

Uncommon Arrow

 

This arrow is filled with bees! Where the arrow lands, whether it hits the creature or not, a swarm of bees emerges for one minute (after which they buzz off). The swarm fills a 5-foot cube at the point of impact. Any creature that enters or starts their turn in the swarm must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or take 3d4 poison damage.

Fetching Arrow

Very Rare Arrow

 

 

When you hit an object with this arrow, that object appears in your hands. You cannot target an object that is worn, carried, or held by another creature, and it must weigh under 20 pounds. The suggested AC of a standard wood object is 15, though the GM may adjust depending on the circumstance. The object sustains no damage from the arrow hitting it, and the arrow immediately disappears upon impact. If your hands are occupied, the object appears at your feet.

Heat Metal Arrow

Rare Arrow

 

 

When this arrow is embedded into a piece of metal (such as a piece of armor or a shield), the metal glows red-hot for one minute or until the arrow is removed as an action with a DC 16 Strength (Athletics) check. Any creature in physical contact with the hot metal takes 2d8 fire damage at the beginning of their turn until the effect ends.

Faulty Arrow

Uncommon Arrow

 

It’s fine…it’s probably fine. When you fire this arrow, roll a d6 to determine what happens: 1. The arrow screams loudly for one minute after being fired. 2. A stream of toilet paper follows this arrow. 3. Where this arrow lands, a cluster of flowers emerge. 4. When this arrow lands, it becomes edible and smells delicious. 5. After hitting, the arrow explodes into glitter (and the glitter gets everywhere). 6. The arrow halts in front of the target and a small flag that says “BANG” emerges from the tip. The arrow then explodes, dealing fire damage instead of piercing damage.

Slick Arrow

Rare Arrow

 

 

When you fire this arrow, a 5-foot wide and up to 50-foot long line of oil slick follows the projectile. This oil slick is considered difficult terrain, and any creature that starts their turn or moves through it must succeed on a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw or fall prone. If ignited, the oil slick deals 2d6 fire damage to any creature that touches it, and it burns away after 1d4+1 rounds.

The Observer

Legendary Arrow

 

 

After firing this arrow, you can use an action to Scry through the glassy bulb at the nock. While Scrying, your body is incapacitated, however you can still speak softly. You can end the Scry as a free action and re-enter it at any point within 24 hours of firing the arrow. The Scry works across the planes of existence. If the arrow is broken, the effect ends.

Piton Arrow

Uncommon Arrow

 

You can fire this into a nonmagical solid surface (such as wood, stone, or metal) where it transforms into a piton that sticks out one foot. The piton remains until it’s removed with a DC 18 Strength (Athletics) check. Any rope tied to this arrow before it is launched will remain tied to the piton.

Knockout Arrow

Uncommon Arrow

 

 

The rounded tip of this arrow deals nonlethal bludgeoning damage, but still hurts like a rhinoceros headbutt. If a creature is reduced to 0 hit points by this arrow, they fall unconscious and are stabilized.

Tethering Arrow

Rare Arrow

 

 

Upon firing this arrow, it splits into two projectiles that are connected by a sturdy length of rope. The points at which the projectiles land must be within 120 feet of you, and within 60 feet of each other. Once the projectiles land, the rope between them becomes taut and supports 500 pounds of weight. If either of the projectiles targets a creature, roll to attack, otherwise they land where designated. The projectile can be removed with a DC 20 Strength (Athletics) check.

Mosquito Arrow

Uncommon Arrow

 

 

Step aside Leech Arrows! When you hit a creature with this arrow, it deals 1d4 piercing damage and extracts a vial of the creature’s blood or similar liquid if applicable. Once the liquid has been extracted the vial seals and the arrow falls safely to the ground. The strong, metal-encased vial has an AC of 18 and 20 hit points.

Weathering Arrow

Very Rare Arrow

 

 

When you fire this arrow into the sky, it changes the weather in a 200-foot radius for 1d4 hours. You decide the weather by activating one of the runes on the shaft, choosing from the following options: (1) sunshine (2) light rain (3) heavy rain (4) fog or mist (5) windy (6) snow. After the allotted time has passed, the weather returns to normal.

Fin-ality Arrow

Rare Arrow

 

 

This arrow can be fired through water without disadvantage. When this arrow hits a creature with blood, the arrow transforms into a hunter shark for one minute. The shark is bloodthirsty and has an initiative directly after yours. It attacks the closest creature, giving priority to the creature it was fired into, but otherwise attacking based on proximity. The shark disappears after one minute or when it is reduced to zero hit points. While not in the water, the shark has a flopping speed of 5 feet.
