I must be an idiot because I can’t find the spell description for Restore Life and Limb. What page is it on? I looked in the core book and Player’s Companion. Thanks for the help!
While I’m at it, why does a composite bow cost 40gp to the longbow’s 7gp? They have the same ranges and the only difference is that the longbow requires 9 Strength.
Restore Life and Limb is on ACKS Core page 85 (right above Reincarnate).
Thank you! It’s not listed alphabetically.

Composite bows can be used on horseback, and horseback archers can be devastating.
They also cost more because longbows are much simpler to make. Longbows are self-bows made from a single piece of wood. Composite bows required a year to create, with horn, wood, and glue worked together by a skilled crafter.
Longbows required easy access to big trees like yew, while composite bows were common in areas where wood was scarcer.
