The largest of the bombs is the caltrop bomb, too large to fit inside a regular bomb box. Packed tightly around the core of alchemist’s fire are hundreds of small caltrops. When the bomb explodes on impact, the caltrops are fired out in every direction. Everyone within a ten-foot radius of the detonation will be struck by 1d8 caltrops for 1d4 points of damage each, in addition to base bomb damage. The caltrops will scatter out to a radius of 40 feet densely enough to make travel through any square within that 40-foot radius hazardous to a man on foot. The caltrops are too small to cause any damage to a horse, though riders will have to stop to remove the caltrops from their mount’s hooves.
Caltrop Bomb: 200 gp; 45 lb.
