Bursting meatball So juicy it explodes!

3
Requires Seasoned
A consumable Meatball that lets you cause a destructive blast of damage in an area.
Used by Bu Fang, Created by GreenAppll.
(Both the source of the effect, as well as the danger zone it creates, are obvious to observers. )

Upon taking a bite of the meatball, the user (beside it tasting really good) will have to throw it as far as possible as it starts hissing from where the bite is. Upon being thrown, the meatball starts to spin, the juices spinning around and shooting everywhere creating this almost seemingly perfect circle. Those with quick intuition or are used to this item will know, that's the distance it will explode from just how hot and steamy this meatball is. Upon which, it will explode into a mass of steam that ignites object around, chunks of the meatball are strewn about before it burns away leaving almost no traces before the strong smell of a meatball.


Spend an Action and use up this Meatball. Select a Location no further than 40 feet from you and in your line of sight. The area within 25 feet of the chosen Location immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Roll 11 dice Difficulty 6, dice penalties do not apply. Targets inside the radius may attempt an appropriate Reaction at GM’s discretion. Finding a physical barrier to use as cover will cut total Damage taken in half (applies after Reaction roll but before Armor).

If the Outcome is positive, your blast hits everything within 25 feet of the chosen Location with Damage equal to your Outcome + 4. Armor is fully effective against this Damage.

Any flammable Objects within the radius during the blast will catch fire, and any being who takes at least 4 Damage will catch fire. Starting the Round after they caught fire, flaming targets take 2 Damage per Round until the fire is extinguished.

  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.
