DRAGOMEIR SERIES – Weapons of War

The number one weapon talked about, hated and loved in “The Emerald Dragon” has got to be the Projector. It comes in a variety of sizes, but the most feared has got to be the Projector Station. It can hit and injure a dragon in the air at several thousand feet. Its travel through the air is silent and swift. Unlike some of the other weapons used by Queen Mother’s troops, the Projector is low tech and easy to manufacture, although somewhat difficult to move to remote areas.

Pictured below is an example of the dreaded Projector Station.

The Projector Station is very similar to its distant cousin, the hand held Projector. They both fire bolts, just of radically different sizes. The amount of pressure is adjustable up to but not to exceed, the tinsel strength of the tangs and the bow ropes. The bolt travel is close to the speed of a bullet and the barbed point of the bolt makes it difficult to remove.

The Projector itself is aimed by a metal hoop that extends from top to bottom at the back of the mechanism. The operator places one foot at the bottom and both hands at the top to swivel and vertically aim the device. The base is generally affixed to the ground by a series of stakes driven deep into the ground.  The bolts are three inches in diameter and up to four feet in length.

Here is an example of the kind of Projector Bolt used by the demons on the Provinces of Hell.

The barb at the tip of the bolt varies in design, depending on use. The bolt pictured has an open faced barb. It is much simpler to remove but allows blood to flow more freely after penetration. Stay posted for future information on Weapons of War!
