Comment: In a world where so many people are dead, dying and left to depression; why are you picking fights with ghosts?
So I was talking to a friend of mine that I'm gming for and I asked him why he didn't take hand to hand: archery and he said he didn't know about it. I've spent about the last hour looking for it. But I can't remember where I saw it at. I think it was in a rifter. I know it's not in the giant book of skills floating around the internet. If anybody can help that would be awesome!

Honestly there are so many different hand to hand skills that it doesn't even ******* matter anymore which one you choose

Are you talking about the weapons proficiency of Archery?

Greetings and Salutations. Rifter #45 has 2 archery based Hand to Hand styles in the article Of Bows & Arrows. Neither has that specific name, but I'd like to think that's the one you're referring to. The article also has some Archery Proficiencies, as well as new archery based O.C.C. Hope that helps. Farewell and safe journeys for now.

Comment: What is genius? A Victim OCC (BtS 1st ed, p. 193 ss)! The ultimate hero is a victim conquering adversity.
Hi there,

but for Prysus' fine article I do not remember a HtH: Archery.

Just to summarize to my best knowledge: the skills influencing archery, aside from any of the HtH combat training, are W.P. Archery / W.P. Crossbow, W.P. Targeting and sniper as well as, albeit indirectly, some of the physical training skills. In PFRPG the Long Bowman O.C.C. is pretty unparalleled in bow use and effectiveness.

Kindest regards
Hendrik

Hand to Hand: Performance Archery and Hand to Hand: Bow Combat were the two skills I was thinking of. Thank you guys.

1st Edition Palladium Fantasy Longbowman came with a hand-to-hand specific to that OCC. It included critical strikes with the longbow. It would be neat to see special strikes with the longbow as an option (critical strike, disarm, death blow, et cetera).

In Rifter #30 the A Cut Above article has some W.P. skills for archery as well.
