Question: Would an unarmoured hand stop an arrow shot from a bow
I was doing my usual scouting route along the Great Divide, when I chanced upon a Sun Empire's camp on the other side. I marked it on the map and began to write down the troop’s numbers and layout. But then a small unit of Paladins of Fury rode into the camp with a hooded figure; my interest increased. The hooded figure walked up to the commander of the camp who then bowed to the figure. The figure then took off the hood revealing he was in fact Prince Leon the Holy Fury. As a Shadowborn I could not pass up the opportunity to assassinate the empire's best heir and defender, so I took out my long bow.
I raised my bow readying to let the arrow loose. "May Lord Kaine guide my arrow to hit true, for the God king!!” The arrow fly's across the Divide with speed. Just before the arrow hit, Leon turned to face me with a raised hand. The arrow stuck his hand stopping it from killing him. Leon pulled the blood soaked arrow from his hand then gives a bold smile, just before he disappeared behind a shield wall.
I run away quickly thinking to myself either that man's a monster or next time I coat my arrows in strong poison.
Details: the bow is a long bow, the arrows are standard war arrows. The hand gets pierced by the arrow rather then catch it. The attacker is 70 meters (229 feet) away
