With the rise of clockwork technology it did not take long to turn it's use from clocks and toys to weapons. The most successful of these weapons has been the SpringBow. A clock work device with a powerfully wound spring, that when realised launches a metal dart at high velocities down a long metal tube. The high velocity and long tube provide a surprising amount of penetration power and accuracy. Originally made in northern Jav, the last few year have seen them spread rapidly southwards were they have become popular in the Goblin kingdoms. Being still very complex to build, they are most often only in the hands of wealthy nobles. But there has be a few capable enough to arm small groups of soldiers and personal guards with them. In fact it is believed that it is do to the SpringBow that Harcon city has kept it's Independence from Jav.
