A Possibly Nonsense But Playable Solution to The Crossbow Conundrum

So there's a problem with crossbows in GURPS. I go into it here. Essentially Rated ST has no limits, and nor does it change bow stats no matter how arbitrarily high it gets. This is despite the TL4 Steel Crossbows saying they exceed this nonexistent limit at the cost of halving ST for range and damage (which pretty clearly makes them useless).

Bugstiary: Maurakappi Player Characters

Readers will always surprise you. When I wrote The Bugstiary I never imagined anyone would want to play an ant. The maurakappi (pp. 27-34)  have highly regimented societies totally devoted to their queens, which is not something I expected DFRPG players to want for a PC race. After the book was published, probably thanks to the excellent maurakappi art by Billy Blue, many readers lamented I didn't include player rules for them.
