Long Description

A crossbow large enough that almost anyone would have to hold it in both hands, it is marked very clearly with the Burleigh and Stronginthearm logo on the stock. The small windlass on one end suggests that it could get off one very powerful shot, before taking a while to reload.

Appraises As

The large crossbow is about three feet long and about two and a half feet wide. It is made of wood and could be used as a fired weapon. It can hold about 1 pound or twelve items.

Acquisition

From Burleigh & Stronginthearm's on the Isle of Gods in Ankh-Morpork.

Kefka's item database

Notes

This weapon is not to be confused with the non-weapon version from the large grassy gnoll that just explodes when used:
