Description: Flash Powder is a substance composed of saltpeter, sulfur, and a few other compounds. When detonated it tends to burn white, and produce small loud explosions and the trademark smell of sulfur. The addition of minerals can be used to tint the explosions a variety of colors, or to add effects such as eye irritants or clouds of smoke. Flash powder is often used in entertainment displays and for fun little 'rockets', as a distraction technique during battle or as a means of escape.
Restriction Level: Moderate - Restricted (See Controlled Substances Web Page.)
Terms & Conditions: For those who claim possession of Flash Powder, they are limited to 5 x 5 oz grain bags, each of single use - though may be simultaneously detonated.
Flash Powder is intended as a light explosive for fireworks, displays, loud bangs, flashes, but NOT a substitute for guns, dynamite, black powder or any such heavy explosives. Under no circumstances can it be applied in highly advanced technological crafts to produce something anachronistic with Eyr’s time-era, such as canons, guns, or grenades.
While it is a light explosive, it is still dangerous. Explosions of flash powder near the body can cause burns, blow off fingers, deafen and burst eardrums, and temporarily blind. It is for these reasons that flash powder is sometimes used in combat to distract, temporarily stun, or startle enemies.
It should be noted that Flash Powder is a dangerous substance to keep upon one’s person, easily ignited by the smallest flame or spark. Knowledge of its concoction is limited to those with training and knowhow and therefore should be ICly sourced via the Gnome Depot or Crone’s Eye where applicable (though if chosen as a token reward does not require questing to legally obtain).
How to Use
When your character is ready to use one of their Flash Powder bags the following action should be taken:
- The object marked 'Flash Powder Bag' found within the reward folder should be rezzed in-world. This should be accompanied by an IC post made to role-play out it’s lighting and aim taken.
- Confirm you wish to detonate or 'utilize' the item by clicking 'yes' (if select no, remember to take the object back into your inventory for later use)
- The object will then expire and self delete, sending email confirmation of IC use to the Eyr admin team for us to log in our token reward records.
- The Flash Powder is considered detonated and 'used' and the attempted effect should be included in your RP post.
Any questions regarding Flash Powder and its use, please contact any Mysts of Eyr Admin!
