Spell Slinger Bow
This ornate light crossbow is inscribed with a number of runes. It has a similar looking bolt case connected to it.
This light crossbow and bolt case allows a spellcaster to store a single targeted spell of up to 4th level on the readied bolt or the all the bolts in the case. (The spell must have a casting time of 1 standard action.) Anytime a bolt imbued with a spell strikes a creature and the creature takes damage from it, the spells effect takes place instantaneously, replacing the normal weapon damage. (This special ability is an exception to the general rule that casting a spell from an item takes at least as long as casting that spell normally.) Once the spell has been cast from the weapon, a spellcaster can cast any other targeted spell of up to 4th level into it. It takes a full round action to imbue (cast) the bolt with a spell, or an extra hour while preparing spells for the day to imbue the entire case, using one spell slot of the spells level for the day.
Every bolt in the case gains the same spell when imbued, but any bolts added after the ritual is completed gains no add effects. Any magic bolts placed in there before a ritual is preformed lose all abilities once the ritual is preformed. A bolt already loaded with effect can be changed to another effect as noted above, effectively removing the old affect.
It emits a strong aura of the evocation school, and a moderate aura of the necromancy school, plus the aura of the spell(s) currently stored.
Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Spectral Hand, creator must be a caster of at least 12th level
