Black powder is the key
explosive component within a firearm that enables it to function, but in larger
amounts this alchemical material can be quite destructive on its own as well.
A single dose of black powder is enough to power a single shot from most one-handed
and two-handed firearms, while 10 doses are required to fire a cannon. Black
powder is often stored and transported in kegs (which hold 100 doses), but in
this quantity the powder itself becomes dangerous. Exposure to fire, electricity,
or a misfire explosion causes black powder to explode—a single keg that
explodes in this manner deals 5d6 points of fire damage to anyone within a 20-foot
burst (DC 15 Reflex half ). Storing black powder in a powder horn protects the
powder from explosion.
