This could be a very interesting encounter. Three cragtop archers, splitting, rapid shot and manyshot, all fire on an adventuring group trying to get to the mountain the archers are on.

Also, I just did the math for splitting, manyshot, rapidshot ranger 20. 112 damage/round, with something like shock, that becomes 160/round. That's with a +1 splitting, shocking composite longbow and str. 14. With all the gold you get by 20th, I'm sure you could get a lot more damage involved.
