!Dawnguard Required!
!Longbows Required!

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.

If you like this mod PLEASE dont forget to VOTE on this mod and the original.

== Help Chest == Troubleshooting ==

If you went to Northwatch Keep and couldn't find Solonor, or got the wrong level version of Solonor don't fret the Help Chest can help. If you having a issue go to Faendal's House in Riverwood and look for the Orange Chest on the cupboard and activate it and follow the prompts. There is a picture of the chest its orange.

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

== Unigue Longbow Solonor ==

Introducing a new unique Longbow called "Solonor" This bow can be found at Northwatch Keep after level 18. If you show up before level 18 you will get a regular enchanted bow, Now the bow will respawn until you pickup any version of the solonor longbow. Example: You show up at level 15 and pickup the regular enchanted bow following normal respawn rates the next time you show up at or after level 18. Version 1 solonor will be available. WARNING if you pick any version of solonor the bow will not respawn again.

There are three versions of this bow
Version 1 is availiable after level 18
Version 2 is available after level 34
Version 3 is available after level 50
*Version 3 is stronger than Version 2 which is stronger than Version 1

The Longbows arrow number is tied to its enchantment charge so if you run out of arrows recharge the bow.
***My only problem is if you recharge the bow while its equipped it won't add arrows to fix this simply unequip and reequip the bow.

I've also added a new merchant at Thaumaturgist's Hut who sells a interesting item. This part is slightly unfinished I'm currently working on adding more items in the future.

== 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.

This mod includes the following Longbows:

* Ancient Dragonbone Longbow
* Solonor

== Questions and Answers ==

== Question 1 ==

Q. Where can I find the Longbows?


* Ancient Dragonbone Longbow - Can only be crafted with Ancient dragon bones that drop off Ancient, revered, and legendary dragons after level 50.
* Solonor - Can be found at Northwatch Keep after level 18, 34, and 50

== Question 2 ==

Q. Can I craft the longbows?

A. The following Longbows below are craftable:

* Ancient Dragonbone Longbow

== Question 3 ==

Q. I need help?

A. Leave me a comment If you find any issues I'm happy to try and help if I have time. If you're rude, short, or irritating I don't have the time. The more information you give the better job I can do in troubleshooting and fixing the issue.

== Question 4 ==

Q. Can I have the ID Codes?

04002F9C Ancient Dragonbone Longbow

Q. The ID codes aren't working!

A. As skyrim loads .esp files it alters ID codes so all mods have a unique ID code. If this happens try using the help command and type: help "ebony longbow"

== Question 5 ==

Q. Those aren't Longbows!

A. They are Hybrid recurve longbows, but typing out "Ancient Nord Hybrid recurve longbow" is just too long. so please bare with me.

== Upgrade ==

This mod does require dawnguard and my Longbows Mod

== Uninstall ==

Remove the LongbowDG.esp, Longbow.esp, LongbowDG.bsa, and Longbow.bsa files, and restart your game. I have removed this several times and haven't had any issues. if you do let me know.

== Future Plans ==

* I do plan on add more unique Longbows in the future, but it takes time. Check back regularly for updates.

== Distribution ==

This file is available on the Skyrim Nexus[] and the Steam Workshop.

I cant get the Dragon Bone Longbow for some reason. ID just doesn't work. Is there a (working) ID for the Ancient Dragon Bones so I can craft it myself?

LOVE these mods! They are among my favorites that I'm running out of roughly 65 other mods. Are/will these be available on SE?

I wonder if you have actually shot a true "longbow"? A true longbow is usually made from Yew wood and there isn't any recurve on the tip ends. They were thick, heavy, their length was out to 90 inches which made them almost impossible to hunt with, and when drawn back the string was actually drawn past the ear so quite often the shooter had string burn not only on their upper arm but also on their cheek. They took a very long time to master accuracy.

A hunting style recurve ranges between 56 inches and 70 inches maximum. They were light, fast, and could easily be shot from a knealing position. My home-made Bamboo backed Hickory reflex/deflex bow is only 60 inches and at 27 inch draw length, it is pulling 55 pounds draw weight. The arrows shot from this bow will completely pass through a deer beyong 40 yards.

However, you have great art work in your mod. The bows have a futuristic style that is quite amazing and beautiful in their own way.

Could the problem be that i broke the bow before i completed the dagger-quest?
