This is, quite simply, the main damage dealing spell and staple of the arcane pyrotechnician class: You create in front of you a small, egg-sized ball of arcane energy that you may carry with you using the arcane suppression extraordinary ability. When thrown, this ball of energy lands on a square as if you were throwing a weapon such as alchemist's fire. the sphere of magic thusly explodes, dealing its effect (usually damage) mainly in the square it lands, but also splashing the squares surrounding it, with a full blast diameter of 15, 20, or 30 ft. With each ascending level of the spell, a new type of grenade is available for creation; also, with ascending spell levels, the damage die of the grenade increases as does range. All of this information is summarized in the following table, "Arcane Grenade Statitics." Full damage is done to targets in the center blast area (Reflex half) and half to targets in the splash area (Reflex none). The save DC is based on the caster's spell DC, as any other spell.
