Fletc

Many are the fletchers and bowyers of Britannia, but none are held in higher esteem than those of the town of Britain. The ingenious engineering and high quality of their arrows, bolts, bows, and crossbows is known throughout the land.

Without question, the bowyer that is held in highest regard throughout all of Britannia is Iolo Fitzowen, the proprietor of the establishment that has come to be called "Iolo's Bows". So popular is this bowyer's shop that beside the main branch in Britain, a similar establishment was set up in Serpent's Hold.

History Edit

These specialized shops only appeared for the first time in Ultima V. Prior to this, they were integrated into weapon shops. From Ultima VI onward, they were a constant in Britannia.

Lore Edit

Many are the fletchers and bowyers of Britannia, but none areheld in higher esteem than those of the town of Britain. The ingenious engineering and high quality of their arrows, bolts, bows, and crossbows is known throughout the land. This is due mainly to the great skill of the master bowyer, Iolo Fitzowen, proprietor of Iolo's Bows. Iolo and his apprentice, Gwenneth, can be of great assistance to archers.
