Bowyers create bows, and are experts in the best uses of ranged combat tools. Able to create stringed weapons out of a multitude of materials, they are sought out by rangers and rogues often for modifications, enhancements, and maintenance of their weapons.
While some Bowyers are capable of working with and modifying crossbows, most prefer to utilize what they consider the “original” ranged weapon, leaving crossbows to their Tinkerer compatriots. Bowyers often have numerous opinions on string tightness, bow flexibility, and proper form, all of which they are only too happy to share with anyone with an ear to listen.
Bowyers will often learn the arts of Fletchers, if only to help them compete, and their familiarity with the weapons they are creating ammunition for allows them to craft exceptional tools.
As well, some have become capable Tinkerers, which has allowed them to broaden their trade to include crossbows, as well as mechanical ammunition.
