Just a thought. Might even be worthwhile to skim through the several thousand posts to retrieve the memorable ones... but this crossed my mind, you'll see a lot if you search 'archery'... and maybe 'shields' and 'evasion' rules....

> Perhaps a DW style example would help:
>
> EXAMPLE: Kharille the sly is facing his arch-enemy Imlach the Bloodspiller across a yawning chasm. Both are armed with identical bows. Kharille's eagle eye and immaculate reflexes should make him the perfect shot, giving him the advantage over his adversary. Imlach, for his part, is a towering man-mountain of sinew and brawn but has the dexterity of a galapagos turtle.
>
> Both adventurers nock their arrows and draw their bows. Immediately, we see Kharilles weedy thews pushed to breaking point. A febrile sweat breaks out on his forehead and his arms quiver and quake as he struggles to pull the bow to full stretch. Finally, he looses his arrow, which unsurprisingly flies off at a random angle, failing to hit anything but the ground.
>
> Imlach, by contrast, has no difficulty pulling the bow to its limit and holding it there steady as a rock as he draws a bead on his enemy. The arrow is released and flies straight and true, at which point we conclude this example rather than risk elevating the enmity of these mighty heroes with a description of grisly bloodshed.

Nah, I would've fired from behind. Wayne would've had difficulty rotating to face me.
