I'm not sure the intent is that bows require a major AND a minor to attack with.

Nocking an arrow takes a Minor Action...

As I said, I can see an argument where you spend the minor action when you want to nock without shooting, and that therefore nocking AND shooting is already governed by the Major action.

I don't think anyone would be WRONG though to say that you do have to spend a minor to nock before you're allowed to expend a major to attack.

RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, you’re fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.

All,

In our group we have been using example one. 

I do have a question for Lormyr, when you "ready" a grenade (in each hand) are the pins already pulled in each?

Best,
