Empire Crossbowmen

An Empire Crossbowman with a crossbow

Though anyone can fire a crossbow with reasonable ability, recent technological advances have expanded on the design, creating improved versions over the basic construction of the ordinary crossbow. Originating in the School of Engineers in Nuln, these specialized forms of crossbows spread rapidly through the Empire and Tilea, but have made little headway into neighbouring lands like Bretonnia and Estalia.[2a][2b]

Crossbows have a longer range than handguns and are far more easily produced, though they lack the penetrative power of handguns.[1a]
