A ballista (plural ballistae) is a weapon used by various spelljamming ships. It relies upon different mechanics, using two levers with torsion springs instead of a prod, the springs consisting of several loops of twisted skeins. Most versions eject heavy darts or spherical stone projectiles of various sizes for siege warfare.
