The Age of Decadence Wiki

Crossbow is one of the combat skills in The Age of Decadence.

Like the bow, the crossbow is a deadly ranged weapon. And, while it lacks the speed, accuracy and range of the bow, the crossbow makes up for that in pure striking power. At close range, a crossbow bolt can hit hard enough to knock an opponent off his feet.

See here for a list of crossbows.

  1. Aim in the general direction and pull the trigger? Got it!
  2. You've learned to look menacing while holding a crossbow. All you need is a good scowl.
  3. You can hit a stationary target. At close range. If there is no wind.
  4. You're getting better. With a bit of luck, you can even hit moving targets.
  5. You're getting the hang of it. Keep it up and you might become a good crossbowman one day.
