The Forever War Chronicles
Leaper Mines, as they are called by the engineers who make use of them, are complex pieces of clockwork machinery that when set on the ground and covered by snow, leaves or grass, act as a land mine. But rather than exploding when triggered, they leap into the air by way of a series of spring-loaded legs, and detonate; sending a shower of tiny metal pellets in a blast radius of 15 ft, dealing 8D4 Damage. A (Reflex DC 20) may be used to avoid the mine entirely. Typical Cost: 1,000 Courtly.
