Of elven make, this white 2 Str bonus) whispers “Swift defeat to my enemies” in Elven when nocked and pulled. Once per day, if the firer swears aloud to slay her target (a free action), the bow’s whisper becomes the low shout “Swift death to those who have wronged me.” Against such a sworn enemy, the bow has a +5 enhancement bonus, and arrows launched from it deal an additional 2d6 points of damage (and x4 on a critical hit instead of the normal x3). However, the bow is treated as only a masterwork weapon against all foes other than the sworn enemy, and the wielder takes a –1 penalty on attack rolls with any weapon other than the oathbow. These bonuses and penalties last for seven days or until the sworn enemy is slain or destroyed by the wielder of the oathbow, whichever comes first.
The oathbow may only have one sworn enemy at a time. Once the wielder swears to slay a target, he cannot make a new oath until he has slain that target or seven days have passed. Even if the wielder slays the sworn enemy on the same day that he makes the oath, he cannot activate the oathbow’s special power again until 24 hours have passed from the time he made the oath.

Frewalt was born in Falonde, along with his twin sister, Elyn Rove, and grew up during rather peaceful times. At a young age it became apparent that the twins had a knack for magic, something that Elyn would start to study full time, as her brother became more interested in hunting and archery, giving little thought to the magic powers that flooded through his veins. From a farming family, the two children were often taken into the city when their father went to sell his animal hides. Enamored with Falonde, Frewalt started helping his father on his hunting trips, eventually gaining a name for himself in the countryside as a master hunter, some even saying he was as good as his father.
At the age of 18, Frewalt and Elyn were tasked with delivering their family’s goods to Falonde, their father having become bedridden with sickness, and their mother taking care of him. At this point, Elyn wanted to enroll into the city’s Academy, so that she could enhance her magical powers. During her time at the Academy, however, magical experiments went wrong and Elyn went missing, throwing the Rove family into despair, causing his father to finally succumb to his sickness, and his mother to fall into a deep depression .
Frewalt began traveling around to the other cities of Londorwin, in hopes that he would someday find his sister, occasionally hearing stories of a young human female mage that had passed through. He spent years traveling the continent, finally returning to Falonde at the age of 26, only to hear that his mother had recently died from a vicious goblin attack that ravaged the countryside. In her stead, he found a little silver dog, who he would start to care for, and eventually name Gare. With his new companion, Frewalt rebuilt his childhood home and returned to his old life as best he could, this time without his family around him.
Renewing his old hunting trade, the stories of Frewalt Rove and his bow skills started to appear throughout the city’s inns and taverns. However, the numerous elven and half-elven hunters mocked Frewalt’s archery skills, causing him to become obsessed with stories of powerful magical bows that could make their wielder stronger than their enemies. He believed that the magic in his blood would help lead him to one of his artifacts, so that he could claim his fame once again. Unfortunately, the next two years of his life would be consumed by this obsession, eventually leading the people to pity his apparent insanity. It wasn’t his fault after all, he had lost his entire family, and was just trying to find his place in the world. Frewalt hadn’t given up hope yet, however, and can be found at the Fletcher and Meade, constantly challenging Galdore Elwed, the land’s greatest archer, to duels, in the hopes to finally claim validation from everyone that he, Frewalt Rove, is the greatest archer in Falonde.
