Default Re: heroic archery questions.

I was tiptoeing around the question of whether you can feint with a bow, because I wasn't sure if that was the goal or not.

But for what it's worth, the Technique says "any unarmed combat or Melee Weapon skill", whereas the Maneuver says "'Fake' a melee attack. You cannot Feint someone unless you could have hit them with a melee attack..." That seems to rule out feinting with bows or other ranged weapons (unless you want to feint hitting them with it, which might entail that pistol whip or... bow club? being your actual attack later).

Deceptive Attack (or Prediction Shot) seem to be a good bit more popular than Feints on the forums or in the games that I've been in.

Are there later rules which allow feinting with ranged weapons? (I don't have either Gun Fu or Tactical Shooting, for instance.)
