This +1 human bane seeking repeating heavy crossbow is carved from whalebone decorated with green and gold lacquer, with fittings, lever, and bow of gilded steel. On a successful hit against any creature who has just struck the wielder with an attack within the previous round—whether with a melee, ranged, or natural weapon, or a spell that requires an attack roll—ammunition fired from a crossbow of retribution wracks the target with shooting pains that impose a –4 penalty on attack rolls, skills checks, and ability checks for 7 rounds. On a successful DC 14 Fortitude save, the penalty only lasts for 1 round. A target who worships the same god as the wielder takes a –2 penalty on its saving throw.


Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, retribution (Pathfinder RPG Advanced Player’s Guide 239), summon monster I, true seeing; Price 16,700 gp
