An older 'Lore' section I forgot about:
These rather frail appearing arrows were first uncovered from the tomb of the Pharoess N'Tsh'a. The queen was legendary for her love of the hunt and was courageous and driven. However, she was also a terrible shot, unable to hit most moving targets. She tended to blame her retainers and more then one found the Queen's marksmanship at close range much better. To preserve his own life, one of her retainers commissioned these arrows.
Might get me in trouble :)
I like the overall concept, but I'm having difficulty imagining these things. How can an arrow impede its own use? Is it sticky, slippery or otherwise crafted to be hard to handle? If you could also describe the arrowhead a bit more, it would help. I'm assuming that these things deal less damage because the arrowhead is not designed to stick into the target (thereby insulting the Emperor), but I could be wrong.
Ahhh, so the magic of the arrow acts as a retarding effect on whomever is touching it as well. That's a really interesting idea. If the effect also applies to the speed of the arrow's flight, then that could also neatly account for the reduced damage. Either way, this is a really nifty concept.
To address the time limit on this quest: it appeared to me that the limit was only there to aid in the creation process. The general concept, appearance and all that jazz can indeed be done in 3 minutes. However, there didn't seem to be a limit on the time we could take to polish it up for submission (something that Pariah also commented on in the quest thread). Perhaps I was confused in this area?
