DESCRIPTION
These unique weapons were used by the Nightsisters, witches of the dark side in the waning days of the Galactic Republic. In fact, these weapons were seen even during the Old Republic in the days of the Sith Lord Leviticus and his war against the Nightsisters. The bowstrings and arrows of the weapon were made of pure plasma and emitted a bright pink glow. In the middle of the bowstring was a grip, allowing the user to fire it without risking their fingers. When running out of plasma arrows, the plasma string could be used as an improvised weapon to blind or burn the enemy.

While the plasma-based arrows' main function is to kill organic targets or stun droids, the arrows are capable of blinding individuals if hit in the head. However, a side-effect of getting hit by one of these arrows can cause third-degree burns on direct contact of the skin.

Once these bows were only used by the witches of Dathomir back in the day, who used it to lethal efficiency. However, due to the "disappearing" of the known clans of witches, the weapon was collected after many years by a few relic hunters that braved the dangerous wilds of Dathomir. Soon the weapon spread, due to its useful capability of being silent when firing. At first, it circulated around the black market for a time, but it quickly spread to a couple of legal manufacturers who found a niche market for the weapon.
The Plasma bow was used for fighting by the Nightsisters back in the day, but now it has found it used in many different areas. Whether being for survival, bounty hunting or directly fighting, the Plasma bow has found it uses across the galaxy.

The plasma bow can collapse into itself for easy carrying and storage if need be.

LEGALITY
Legal. However, normal civilians are not allowed to carry the Plasma Bow in most governed worlds unless they have acquired Hunter's Certificate by the local authorities. The reason for this is due to it being completely silent when in use. If a user carries the weapon, without a Hunter's Certificate, the weapon will be confiscated and the user will be fined or get prison time if used against anyone.

INTENT
The intent of this weapon is to provide people with a more exotic and unique weapon to use in their RP. Also, it is made for those that want to RP as a Dathomirian(Nightsister) and is in part made, so I can begin to bring back the Witches of Dathomir as it is such well-used weapon by the Witches in Star Wars.

RESTRICTIONS
None

I need a much better quality write-up for something like this. Description needs serious work in the grammar department, and the apparent fact that this thing can only do stun damage seems unrealistic given how it is portrayed on screen.

Also, a hand-crafted weapon from a cult that basically died out over a century ago probably isn't going to be non-advanced.

Could you elaborate what you mean in a quality write-up?

I did actually describe it in my post. Basically, though, the grammar in the item's description make it very difficult for me to understand it. I understand if maybe you need someone to edit or proof-read it for you.

This is also something that should be advanced based simply on it's extreme rarity at this point in canon.

This needs to be adjusted for the recent tech changes. It probably doesnt need to be restricted

@Loco I've decided to remove the restrictions after a reread of what the restriction was meant for. Think I've might have misunderstood it.
