Arbalest 300 gp (Ammunition: Siege Bolt, 2 gp) 2d10 piercing 20 lb. Ammunition (range 150/600), heavy, two-handed, loading, special

A powerful, siege defense crossbow with a windlass mechanism, used for drawing back the string.

Special. Attacks made while prone with this weapon do not have disadvantage from being prone. However, due to the sheer weight and size of the weapon, it must be prepared to fire accurately. You cannot make attacks with it until you take an action to set it up, and while you are holding onto a set up arbalest, your movement speed is 0. Finally, you cannot ignore the loading property on this weapon.

Expensive. A character can never gain this weapon as starting equipment from their class.
