There are ways to make real soft arrowheads. The Amtgard people use
Nerf balls on arrows and most of them probably wear even less in combat
than SCA rapier fighters. How about something like that?
A long bow and a strong bow,
And let the sky grow dark.
The nock to the cord, the shaft to the ear,
And a foreign king for a mark!
