The minimum distance an arrow has to travel to count to be considered a hit is it's own length. (You kind of have to eyeball this) There is no rule about not firing within 8 feet. I do not know where that came from, other than maybe transported from another game. (dunno which). You're totally cool within the Dagorhir ruleset to shoot within 8 feet, so long as the arrow travels its own length after being released from the bow (Rag has been measuring this at the point where the string sits at rest when the bow is not drawn.)

An arrow is considered to have passed through a weapon as if it were not there. So if your target has a sword hanging out to their right, shooting the middle of the blade does nothing...
UNLESS, someone else is standing in front of the sword at that point, then the arrow would have continued on and hit that person, and they should take whatever that should have been. These are hard to notice,and hard to enforce. If someone happens to see an arrow hit a weapon in front of them that someone else is holding, they are supposed to take that arrow hit. If they don't it's no big loss, archer can try to let that person know what happened, but it's a complicated scenario to explain in the heat of battle, so it's often better to leave it. If a herald sees it and thinks the player it would have hit simply ignored it, they should point it out and explain the rule. The person holding the weapon takes no damage...
UNLESS they were purposely attempting to block the arrow. In that case they are dead, and a herald may want give the player a talking to if it is a reoccurring behavior because it is unsafe.

If it is totally unclear where the arrow would have hit, but it *could* have hit arm or shoulder, then leave the call up to the fighter. This is a game of honor, isn't it?

I hope that's clarified your questions.
