Attercap’s Web  - Starmetal Powerbow ***Attunement Bonus: The arrows of Attercap’s Web trail invisible strings, binding their targets to the bow. Whenever an enemy is struck by an attack, they may be bound. You may have at most (Essence, minimum 3) bound enemies at a time, which lasts until the end of the scene. You always know the rough location of bound enemies (not enough they aren’t considered hidden from you, but enough to know where they are in terms of range bands), and you gain +2 dice on all rolls to disengage from them, rush them, or to resist their rushes and disengages.
