Hunting Trap5 sp11 kg
Oil1 cp½ kg
Perfume5 sp⅒ kg

Ball bearings (bag of 1,000)

(1 sp, 1 kg)

As an action, you can spill these tiny metal balls from their pouch to cover a level, square area that is 2 meters on a side. A creature moving across the covered area must succeed on a DC 10 Reflex saving throw or fall prone. A creature moving through the area at half speed doesn’t need to make the save.

Caltrops (bag of 20)

(1 sp, 1 kg)

As an action, you can spread a bag of caltrops to cover a square area that is 1 meter on a side. Any creature that enters the area must succeed on a DC 15 Reflex saving throw or stop moving this turn and take 1 piercing damage. Taking this damage reduces the creature’s walking speed by 2 meters until the creature regains at least 1 health. A creature moving through the area at half speed doesn’t need to make the save.

Holy Water

(25 sp, ½ kg)

As an action, you can splash the oil in this flask onto a creature within 1 meter of you. Make a ranged attack against a target creature or object, treating the water as an improvised weapon. If the target is a fiend or undead, it takes 4d6 radiant damage.

Alternatively, you can throw it up to 3/10 meters, shattering it on impact. Each fiend or undead within 1 meter of that point must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or take 4d6 radiant damage.

Lastly, you can anoint a weapon with holy water. For 5 minutes the weapon deals an extra 1d6 radiant damage to fiends and undead when it hits or half as much if it misses by 4 or less. You can anoint a quiver containing arrows or bolts, granting the ammunition pulled from it the same effect. The effect ends on a piece of ammunition when it hits or misses.

Hunting Trap

(5 sp, 11 kg)

As an action, you can set this trap which forms a saw-toothed steel ring that snaps shut when a creature steps on a pressure plate in the center. The trap is affixed by a heavy chain to an immobile object, such as a tree or a spike driven into the ground. A creature that steps on the plate must succeed on a DC 13 Reflex saving throw or take 1d4 piercing damage and stop moving. Thereafter, until the creature breaks free of the trap, its movement is limited by the length of the chain (typically 1 meter long). A creature can use an action to make a DC 13 Brawn check, freeing itself or another creature within its reach on a success. Each failed check deals 1 piercing damage to the trapped creature.

Oil

(1 cp, ½ kg)

Oil usually comes in a clay flask that holds half a liter. As an action, you can splash the oil in this flask onto a creature within 1 meter of you. Make a ranged attack against a target creature or object, treating the oil as an improvised weapon. On a hit, the target is covered in oil.

Alternatively, you can throw it up to 3/10 meters, shattering it on impact. Each creature within 1 meter of that point must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be covered in oil.

If a creature covered in oil takes any fire damage before the oil dries (after 1 minute), the target takes an additional 5 fire damage from the burning oil.

You can also pour a flask of oil on the ground to cover a 1-meter square area, provided that the surface is level. If lit, the oil burns for 2 rounds and deals 5 fire damage to any creature that enters the area or ends its turn in the area. A creature can take this damage only once per turn.

Perfume (10 uses)

(5 sp, ⅒ kg)

Perfume and cologne are common accessories for those who hope to avoid offending through scent. More expensive scents are available in finer quarters of any city. A single dose lasts for 8 hours during which its wearer may gains a +2 bonus on all Charisma checks, at the GM’s discretion.
