SO were the scots, but they were able to assemble a good force of men to hold of the real world english on several occasions- only the stupidity of their leaders caused them to fail.

I'm responding to ops claims of "hevay billmen" and so forth, in relaity abunch of subjugated sctos would make garbage tier troops who'd only be bale to defend fixed positions- the brettonians are just too fucking stupid to EVER understand how useful training a force of foot soldiers for complicated manuevers would be.

That's it. I'm sick of all this "Peasant Longbowmen" bullshit that's going on in the WH system right now. Longbowmen deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine longbow in England for 400 EUR (that's about 510 USD) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even shoot trough slabs of solid steel with my longbow.

English bowmakers spend years working on a single longbow and bend it up to a million times to produce the finest bows known to mankind.

Longbows are thrice as powerful as eastern bows and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything eastern bow can cut through, a longbow can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a longbow could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.

Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering England? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined longbowmen and their longbows of destruction. Even in World War II, German soldiers targeted the men with the longbows first because their killing power was feared and respected.

So what am I saying? Longbowmen are simply the best bowmen that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the WH system.
(One-Handed Exotic Weapon)
1d12 Damage
19-20 x4 Crit
+2 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

(Two-Handed Exotic Weapon)
2d10 Damage
17-20 x4 Crit
+5 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

Now that seems a lot more representative of the cutting power of Katanas in real life, don't you think?

tl;dr = Katanas need to do more damage in d20, see my new stat block.
