Iolo's Bows is the yardstick when it comes to the manufacturing of distance weapons. Founded by Iolo Fitzowen, legendary companion of the Avatar, the company deals with crossbows, bows and the fitting arrows and bolts. Their high quality guarantees maximum efficiency, but also at a high price. Nonetheless, every archer or crossbowman who wants to use quality work buys either at the main branch in Britain, or the new location, Iolo's South, in Serpent's Hold.
