We've just released a fairly significant change to how archery works in
Aetolia. Details as follows:

- Arrows will no longer instantly hit/miss a target after being shot.

- They instead will travel between each room at a fast rate.

- They will lose damage and accuracy for each room traveled.

- The damage formula has also been changed.
- We'll be making continued adjustments to this as needed.

- Arrows that travel through firewalls will lose any venoms on them.
- But they'll set their target on fire.
- If the target is already on fire, it'll do more
damage to them.

- New Vision skill: EagleEye.
- When turned on, allows you see projectiles incoming
to your room.
- Doesn't work on projectiles that are SNIPEd.

- New Weaponry skill: Archery
- Confers use of LONGBOWS only.
- Does not grant access to the aiming skill.
- Does not grant ability to shoot meteors.

We'll be watching bow use carefully and adjusting balance costs, damage
and other aspects of the system as required.
