Shooting my pirate, BR 18, BR 10. Hit for 4 pts.
Spider bot attacks its pirate, BR 20. For damage, BR 5 (x2x2)
Who cares about using bows in melee, 1/2 our party would be completely useless if we couldn't. As far as I'm concerned, if some loser wants to do 4 pts of dmg / round with a bow v. me, while in melee, go for it. Druid spells are absolute dog poo, if they weren't, maybe Tut would have something useful to do instead of shoot a crappy bow.
