Two-handed ancient ranged weapon
Damage: +0 Piercing
A long pipe held to the mouth with both hands. A sharp thrust of breath fires a light dart that is usually poisoned with a Neurotoxin.
A blowpipe is about as long as you are. An ancient blowgun cannot be used in melee without ruining the weapon, as they are quite frail. Modern metal versions could be made to perform like a Quarterstaff.
The distinction between a long blowpipe and a short blowgun is entirely a game convention; both long and short blowpipes can be called by either name. Likewise, the range of this weapon is cinematic, in reality it has a Close range.
