Archery is on of the coolest things that you can do in Minecraft or in any game. It is like being a medieval sniper. One of the most famous archers that everyone knows, is Robbin Hood. He stole from the rich and gave it to the poor. He was the best marksman with his bow. Now with this mod, you can feel yourself as Mr. Robbin.
The mod gives the player the ability to utilize new types of bows and quivers. The vanilla bow is not replaced, you can still use it. However the crafting recipe for the vanilla bow is removed. This mod also adds quivers and new arrows. This allows the player to quick-switch between arrows. It also allows to shoot much faster.
Skeletons that spawn, can be armed with the longbows or recurve bows. There is a small chance that their arrows might be poisoned.
