Repeating Ballista
By: Arjan Wardekker
Type: Weapon
Game: Dungeons & Dragons (D&D)

Essentially, this is a rather large repeating crossbow. The repeating ballista's ammunition is a rack, containing 5 bolts. While the rack holds bolts, you can shoot a bolt every round. Loading a new rack of bolts takes 5 rounds. You can shorten this time to 4 rounds if you man the ballista with a crew of 2, instead of 1. The second person can start reloading as soon as you fired the last bolt and can assist in reloading itself.
Attack rolls are made just as with a normal ballista: an unmodified d20 roll.
