This mod is a collection of hybrid recurve longbows. I tried to make the recurve longbows serve a different purpose then the regular bows that came with skyrim. These recurve longbows have greater distance and have a greater sneak attack multiplier. The drawback is that drawing the recurve longbows takes a lot longer than vanilla bows. This mod doesn't just add a bunch of new bows you can simply craft. Some are craftable others must be bought or found. I have tried to balance them in with skyrim so they are not over powerful and should seamlessly fit in with everything else. The recurve longbows will show up in the world of skyrim based off the player’s current level and skills.

The strongest longbow is on par with the strongest crossbow so you can now choose if you want to use a crossbow or longbow. Example: The daedric longbow is the same strength as the dwarven crossbow and can be tempered just like the crossbow.

If you like this mod PLEASE don't forget to VOTE!

== Features ==

* Longbows can shoot 50% further then standard bows
* Do more damage than existing bows.
* Will increase your sneak critical damage from 2 times to 2.5 times. If you have the deadly aim perk it is increased from 3 times to 4 times.
* The downside to each bow is that the pullback time is very high and shouldn’t be used in close combat.
* I have introduced several bows intro the game and will randomly appear just like any other bow in the game.

== Quests ==

Boxed Artifact - This quest when completed unlocks the Dwarven Longbow. To start this quest you must be far enough along in Discerning the Transmundane[elderscrolls.wikia.com] to enter blackreach and must have completed Taking Care of Business[elderscrolls.wikia.com]. Next reach level 40 and a courier should find you and the quest will begin.

== Help Chest == Troubleshooting ==

If the Courier won't show up to start the "Boxed Artifact" Quest don't fret the Help Chest can help. If you having a issue go to Faendal's House in Riverwood and look for the Gold Chest on the cupboard and activate it and follow the prompts. There is a picture of the chest its gold.

This add-on is mainly for peoples save games that have been broken by so many embedded scripts.

How do you get the Nord Hero Longbow? I cant find it on the skyforge, and as far as I can see there is no mod for this so called "Skyforge" perk that you need. Im passed the required level limit. this is really starting to agrivate me. I can get them all except for the Nord Hero Longbow. Someone help me out here please.

@Grantiz Oh! That makes a lot of sense. I really like that mechanic! It prevents Longbows from always been the 100% better option for sneak attacks. Thanks for telling me!

@Secret Wizard 413 - the longbows are slightly louder than standard bow so close range sneak crits are more difficult. Basically they are made to be used at range.

I am experiencing a glitch with this mod. The sneak critical bonus is not always applying when I strike an enemy from sneak. Regular bows and crossbows work just fine, but these Longbows are only rarely getting sneak crits. Considering how these bows are fully intended to be used in stealth, I find I just can't use them for this purpose.

Otherwise, this mod is very good! High quality models that are not immersion breaking. They fit in just perfectly with the game's art style. The slow draw animation is smooth, as well.
