Bow and Crossbow ammo

Recommended Posts

Dark Heresy runs its ammo acquisitions in accordance to the clip size of the weapon that fires it. 

 

Generally speaking, this is okay, you start with two clips for any weapon you have at character creation, and you receive 2 clips + DoS on a requisition test. Which is very reasonable.

 

I mean, unless you're using a bow or a crossbow. Then you're screwed. Start the game with only two arrows? lovely!

Am I interpreting this right? If I am I'm just going to house rule the ammo to be acquired by the dozen.

 

Thanks!

This is covered on page 3 of the FAQ. Basically you get 12 from a requisition test and 6 more per degree of success after the first. It also clarifies that 6 arrows/bolts are considered a clip for weight purposes as well. So a starting character with a bow or crossbow should start with 12 with 12 more for each acquisition they use on arrows.

Excellent. I'll have to point this out to my DM. I am about to start the game with a musket and arquebus and I thought that 4 bullets would be a bit pathetic.

 

Edit: Ah, except they mention bows and crossbows specifically, not necessarily single-shot weapons... But I'm sure I can convince him.
