This magical arrow transforms into a sparrow when fired at a target beyond short range.The target need not be in view, but clearly imagined in the eye of the Archer’s mind. The bird will seek out the target, and so long as there is a clear path, will transform back into an arrow to strike them.
Legend speaks of an Archer who purchased a quiver of these arrows at great cost, to gain revenge on a King. Each day he would send one arrow flapping its way to the king, and ten days the sparrows failed. The eleventh found its mark, but the Kings men tracked the sparrows to their source. Rather than submit to capture, the Archer held the last arrow and gave prayer to the God of Nature. Hearing his prayer, the Archer was transformed into a sparrow and flew away.
The arrow is considered to have been fired at point blank range against the selected target. There is a 1% chance per mile that the sparrow is caught by a predator, disrupted by weather or the magic simply fails.
The arrow may not be recalled once fired, and any poison used must not be toxic to avians or the sparrow will die instantly when it transforms.
