My father, Nelorts Ledatic (Neh-lort-us Led-atich), was the world's greatest fletcher.

Aye, I know this will cause eye-rolling derision and doubt in the reader, for it is I, Joachim Ledatic, Son of the Arrowsmith, that scribes these words now.

Alas, my love for the man and his work, may indeed seem subjective and biased, but I feel an overwhelming calling, for having myself failed at my chosen life's path, that of a sell-sword, at least i can in my waning years, catalogue and document my sire's truer and purer profession.

My father made the finest crafted arrows, quivers, and bows this world has ever seen. But he was a man of great superstition, and feared magic. Feared, but respected it. And so I have dug up his detailed compilation of researched magical tools of the fletcher's craft, his exhaustive lists, notes, and descriptions of legendary items and peculiar arcana. Arrows, bows, bolts and quivers, and braces. I hope in this manner, I can make the man immortal.

Included is my father's treatise on his craft, entitled simply, Longbows. Required reading for all aspiring fletchers and bowyers.
