Suggestion 1) add bolts as well as arrows

Suggestion 2) add cold iron as It doesn't make sense that the Silver Flame would only work against the LE Devils and not the CE Demons (and yes, I get the name reference :) )

Maybe the Silver Flame is in cahoots with the demons.

The reason it's only arrows is because the longbow is the favored weapon of the silver flame

... but while the longbow is the favored weapon of the deity (itself an abstract, disembodied force), the church as a whole holds archery as an important tradition. Crossbows would (or at least could) be a part of that tradition. And of course the church would focus on silver as they fear/despise Lycanthropes. However... seeing as Lycanthropes are currently in short supply and the main enemies of the Silver Flame in its current residence are Devils & demons, I can't really see them ignoring half of the threat.

We shoot longbows and xbows in real life. Something I've noticed is that it takes very little skill to manage an xbow. Peeps who move from longbows/recurves to xbow automatically jump in score about 20%. Its a higher tech weapon - more acccurate and with more penetrating power, and easier for "novices" to master. Especially if that "novice" is an Adept with duties that limit their time practicing on the archery range.

I'm not saying that RL trumps the fantasy of D&D, but if its true that the SF promotes archery [not just the longbow] then it follows that they would embrace the xbow.

No, that does not follow at all. :confused:

The Silver Flame ammo is specialized for fighting undead not extraplanars. Cold Iron provides no benefit against undead. The only reason to buy Silver Flame ammo for fighting devils is because you want to fit 3,000 silver arrows into one quiver.
