Duration 1 round/level


The nature of all bombs you create and throw during this extract’s duration changes, becoming metallic and strange.

When you throw a bomb and hit a direct target, a translucent, rust-red cloud is released that affects only the target of your bomb. This rust cloud can affect one metallic item, weapon, or piece of armor of your choice in the target’s possession or on its body; the cloud attempts a sunder combat maneuver against the target object immediately. If you use this effect to attempt to sunder an object in the target’s hands, substitute a number equal to your caster level + your Int modifier for the sunder’s combat maneuver check. If the object is not in the target’s hands, use your CMB to determine whether the sunder attempt is successful. If the target item is successfully sundered, ignore 10 points of hardness when calculating damage to the object.

When you throw a bomb with this extract is in effect and miss, the cloud is not released. You must target a creature and not a square for the cloud to be released.

Only metallic and metal-based objects are affected; objects made from special materials such as darkwood, dragonhide, stone, and other non-metal materials are not affected.

This extract has no effect on any discoveries that you use to modify your bombs, and you can only have one admixture effect (formula with the word �bomb admixture� in its title) active at a time. If you drink another bomb admixture, the effects of the former bomb admixture end and the new admixture becomes active.
