Missle:  Had thrown weapons.   Bows are beginning to show.  As yet neither has been used heavily enough to have had rules nailed down for them.  Stay tuned.

Misc: If anyone wants to make an unusual weapon for mostering they are welome too (as long as the weapon is safe).  We have had staves, claws and even a very lumpy polearm.  Atypical weapons for players are another matter.  One the player would have to purchase the weapon.  Secondly the weapon cannot be longer than the max length that clas could use unless it was something unweildy enough (the lumpy polearm somes to mind) that the length is offset by usabilty.
