Microwave Pot Grenade

Cobbled together by the tech-serfs of Niva Gustav for use against rampaging servitors, these simple devices incorporate a salvaged microwave emitter and a powerful capacitor inside a fragile clay shell. Breaking the shell connects the capacitor's circuit, burning out the microwave emitter with a wide-spectrum burst of high-intensity EM radiation. They can be used to temporarily disable machinery in a small radius, or emit a nasty shock. Many tech-serfs carry at least one on their person at all times, in case they are ambushed or unexpectedly attacked by wandering machine-life. On a roll of doubles on the Ballistic Skill test used to activate it, a Microwave pot simply fails to work due to its crude construction. Microwave Pot Grenades are considered to be Common only on Niva Gustav or in any are settled by the Nivans. Their Availability is otherwise assumed to be Very Rare.
