In the Lith-Crillion Era, at Frosvirk, the necromancer Halavile Freydis invented the first black siege crossbow. The heavy weapons fire bolts of negative energy. When fired, crackling black energy encases the spear. Siege crossbows are usually mounted on a wall or tripod, yet ogres and giants have been known to use them as a hand-held weapon. This heavy weapon has a very slow fire rate which results in the loss of two attacks per round. A creature with only one attack would fire it once every three rounds.
