Blowguns are more tools of irritation than real weapons. Although they can be loaded with either sleep or poison darts, their effects can be easily shrugged off, and the dart itself will hardly injure an enemy. This means that the blowgun is fairly useless, except on the weakest of enemies.

According to Vetron's Guide to Weapons and Armour, the blowgun has a "1" effectiveness rating, and can be loaded with sleep or poison darts.

History Edit

The blowgun first appeared in Savage Empire, as a weapon outside the "hierarchy" of weapons among the tribes of Eodon; it was most commonly used by Urali thugs. It appears again in the time of Ultima VII, used mostly by scoundrels, and can't be bought. In Ultima VII Part Two, the goblin females of Serpent Isle are very fond of using this weapon with an annoyingly effective poison.

Lore Edit


A blowgun in Savage Empire

The blowgun, a weapon in use by all the tribes but especially common among the feared Urali thugs, is the 'outcast,' having no place in this hierarchy. The darts alone are far too weak to be a weapon, but when coated with poison they become an instrument of death far too powerful for use under all but the most dire of circumstances.
