Star Wars Saga Edition Wiki

The Thermal Detonator is a fist-sized sphere containing baradium, a powerful explosive. Outlawed throughout known space except for highly regulated demolitions professionals, the thermal detonator produces a fusion reaction that generates a rapidly expanding field of searing heat and blast energy. Disguised as a Bounty Hunter, Princess Leia threatened Jabba with a Thermal Detonator at the beginning of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

A Thermal Detonator's timer can be set from 6 seconds (1 round), to as high as an 18-second delay (3 rounds), counting down until it explodes, or is reset to its safe position.

When you make an Area Attack with a Thermal Detonator, you make a single attack roll and compare the result to the Reflex Defense of every target in the grenade's 4-square Burst radius. Creatures hit take full damage, and creatures missed take half damage. A target with the Evasion talent takes half damage from a successful attack, and no damage if the attack misses its Reflex Defense.
