Crafted by the master fletcher Kauppi of Tammisaari, The Gambler's Bow is shaped from a piece of wood taken from a slain animated fir tree from the realm of the Gambler God. It is owned by Bear Face of the New Brevik Travelers.
Kauppi's take on the bow's wood:
"This wood is fascinating - it feels completely unstable, as though it were about to explode, magically speaking, and yet it seems, paradoxically, totally stable and in balance. It's twisted, but organized. My guess is that I can craft quite an interesting bow for you using this stuff, but I can't guarantee that it will be 100 percent reliable. In fact, I can guarantee that it won't be 100 percent reliable. But it may still be a great bow, for all that."
