This item resembles a slender bamboo or metal scroll case.
Benefit: A poisoned sand tube is typically filled with fine sand that is soaked or coated with inhaled or contact poison.
When loaded with 3 doses of these types of poison, the wielder blows into the tube, dispersing the poisoned sand into her enemies’ faces in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in the cone is affected as if afflicted with 1 dose of the poison. Even when loaded with unpoisoned sand, the tube lets loose a powerful irritant, and an opponent struck must succeed at a DC 12 Fortitude saving throw or be dazzled for 1 round. Once expended, the tube must be repacked before it can be used again. Repacking a tube requires a full-round action, or a standard action if the wielder has the Rapid Reload feat.
