Converting Farland Magic Items
Let's use this thread to convert Farland 3.5 magic items to 4E. Converted items should retain the flavor of the original, but no attempt need be made to match exactly.
Here's an attempt at the Crossbow of Wawmar

Crafted under the hammers of the most expert metalsmiths in the world, the dwarves of Wawmar, this steel +3 heavy crossbow cannot be broken in battle or under normal use, although it is not indestructible (it can be destroyed in a normal forge).

This power functions three times per day.
