a round bomb used by smugglers and mercenaries, most of these weapons originated from a design first built on Talesia. They are essentially a casing which contained a shaped charge of baradium. The use of baradium made the weapon extremely dangerous, even for the being who threw it, as the element was highly unstable. Depending on the size of the charge, a thermal detonator would essentially atomize all material within a spherical area centered on the charge itself. Anything outside the range of the blast sphere remained virtually untouched. The baradium was activated by a switch, which would release a short burst of energy into the baradium mass, causing it to explode.
