Archers in Wandering Ronin use arrows to damage their enemies from a distance, often striking from safety while their enemy is otherwise preoccupied. There are specific rules in Wandering Ronin about bows, arrows, and their use.
From the Rulebook:
Arrows are generally fragile and are often broken by accident on the field. Arrow shafts made from graphite offer a flexibility and resilience not found in their aluminum or wooden counterparts. Wooden arrows must be taped along their entire length. Steel and Titanium arrows are not allowed. All arrowheads must be removed from the arrow, and the base of the arrow at the tip must be built up with a sufficiently strong material to at least the diameter of a nickel, which is used to cap the arrow. Arrows may not be drawn beyond 30 inches, and must have a stopper in place if they are longer. Arrows must have a minimum of 3 inches of closed cell foam on the tip, and it must be at least 3 inches in diameter. Arrow fletching and nocks must be in good repair, and arrowheads should be checked regularly for degrading foam. All arrows must be clearly labeled with their owner’s name on the shaft. Properly colored head covers may be used in lieu of strips to denote special arrow status.
