Blasts

(Tom Clare)

Most explosions are likely to be caused by structures collapsing, or gas or spirits igniting. Uncanny creatures, too, sometimes have the ability to blast those that attempt to touch them. Explosives as offensive weapons are rare in Albion*, though the Ta’ashim* black powder is known of.

Blast damage is taken by all within the given radius. Where there is more than one radius/damage listed, the first damage listing is taken by those within the first radius, the second by those outside the first radius, but within the second radius given, and so on.

Armour protects by subtracting its armour factor from any damage taken.
