Bombs

About

Bombs are alchemical items that can be crafted with the Craft (Alchemy) skill. Typically they’re made with items that can be easily scavenged from the wilderness or require very few components. Bombs are thrown light weapons with a range of 10 ft and are ranged touch attacks. Typically the DC to target a single square is only 5 but unusual circumstances may also apply (such as precision throws through small holes, for instance). All bombs have a 1 square radius effect but any creature that is caught in the square (or passes through the square for lingering effects) must save against the bombs effects.

Use the formula for determining Craft value when using the Survival skill to forage for materials, except the player need only accumulate a total value equal to the raw material cost (typically 1/3 market value).

Dancing Star

Filled with an alchemical liquid, this bomb ignites when the exterior of the bomb is broken in a powerful explosion.
This bomb explodes on impact dealing 1d6 Fire damage to anyone caught in the area of effect that fails the save. A successful save deals half damage.
Augmenting: +5 Craft DC, +2 Reflex DC, +1d6 Fire damage

Devil’s Puffball

A dense package containing a aerosol toxin, this bomb can vastly weaken powerful monsters. After hitting a solid object, the bomb explodes releasing a noxious, toxic gas in the air. The toxin requires a DC 12 Fortitude save or else the target suffers 1d2 Con damage for 1 round. The noxious cloud remains in the square of impact for 1 additional round after thrown. Even if augmented, the target is entitled to only one save to resist the bomb’s toxin.
Augmenting: +5 Craft DC, +2 Fortitude DC, +1 round duration

Dimeritium Bomb

Infused wit a rare metal, dimeritium, this bomb explodes on impact embedding shards of the metal into the target which disrupts spellcasting and the spell-like abilities of monsters. Anyone caught in the square must make a DC 20 Reflex Save to avoid the metalic shards. If the target fails, they are required to make a concentration check to cast any spell or use any spell-like ability for 1 round.
Augmenting: +5 Craft DC, +2 Reflex DC, +1 round duration

Dragon’s Dream

This bomb explodes on contact, releasing a sticky and highly flammable substance that is extremely flammable. To avoid the substance, the target must succeed on a DC 15 Reflex save if they occupy a square the bomb explodes in. The liquid can be washed off but otherwise remains potent for about an hour. If the target is subject to fire damage of any kind, they take half the fire damage of the attack for 1 additional round.
Augmenting: +5 Craft DC, +2 Reflex DC, +1 round duration

Grapeshot

A highly dense explosive material wrapped up in sharp metal shards, those caught within range of a grapeshot are assaulted with tiny, burning metal pieces of cutting slag. If the target fails a DC 15 Reflex save while in the area of a Grapeshot explosion, they suffer 1d6 Piercing damage. A successful save deals half damage.
Augmenting: +5 Craft DC, +2 Reflex DC, +1d6 piercing damage

Northern Winds

A potent alchemical concoction that captures the freezing winds of Skellige inside the thick shell of a bomb, releasing an icy blast on impact. This bomb explodes dealing 1d6 Cold damage to anyone caught in the area of effect that fails the save. A successful save deals half damage.
Augmenting: +5 Craft DC, +2 Reflex DC, +1d6 Cold damage

Samum

Samum explodes in a blinding white flash. Any target in the area of the explosion must succeed on a DC 15 Reflex save to shield their eyes or else they are blinded for 1 round.
Augmenting: +5 Craft DC, +2 Reflex DC, +1 round duration
