Heavy Crossbow +1
This heavy crossbow was forged in the heavens by the angels of Gond, The Wonderbringer, The Holy Maker of All Things. Gond is the god of artifice, craft, and invention and his angels are incredibly gifted artisans. The crossbow is expertly crafted with advanced gearing and strange celestial materials making it very light and extremely accurate. The crossbow weighs only 9 pounds – half the weight of a typical heavy crossbow. Sky Piercer is inscribed with feathered wings, suns, and has an amazing fit and finish. It is clearly of celestial origin and as such fiends find the site of the weapon repulsive. The crossbow was given by Gond’s Angels to Banacturus Dabasar, Grand Bishop of Gond and spiritual leader of The High House of Wonders, a church of Gond located in Baldur’s Gate. Banactus used Sky Piercer in the defense of Baldur’s Gate when demons were summoned to the city during the Time of Troubles by a demon worshipping cult of Tieflings. In a tragic turn of events it was later stolen by a Tiefling assassin named Thalassa Ziada and used to murder Banacturus in his own church. Thalassa escaped and was never brought to justice. Her act forever tainted Sky Piercer in the eyes of the church of Gond. Sky Piercer has had many owners since those times but the clergy of Gond still remember the weapon’s sinister reputation.
