World Building Tips: Archery

Bows. Just about every fantasy world has them, and they all tend to gravitate towards the generic wooden stick thrower trope. You know what I’m talking about, just your basic wooden stick with a string that shoots arrows. But that’s not what we’re going for here, right? We want our worlds to feel big and well thought out, like the things that exist in it exist for a reason. It’s fine if your archers use that kind of bow (it’s called a self-bow, if you were wondering. I know, it’s a dumb name.), but there are also other options that might fit your world/characters better. It’s not a big detail, but one that can really help add believability and depth to your world.
