Smoke bomb
Poison information
Effect Minor damage, reduced visibility
Other names
smoke bomb
clay ... guano ... Black Benedict's Batsup ... loose sugar ... sulphur powder ... candle wick
(highlight to see)


After being lit and hurled (or thrown at someone) it explodes causing minor damage and it fills the room with a billowing cloud of smoke that lowers the perception of everybody in the room (including the thrower), making it harder to spot people doing covert things like hiding, backstabbing, ambushing and inhuming and preventing the use of the watch command.

  • The smoke causes anyone entering the room to suffer the same effects while it remains, which is longer when the poison maker has more skill.
  • Discworld object help: gasbomb (includes the information on smoke bomb)
  • Similar to gas bomb
