Post subject:  One explosive trap setting of others.

Will one explosive trap that is triggered set off other armed and filled, exclusive traps within the radius of the initial explosion? Or will each explosive trap with a repped trigger need to be set off individually? The rule does not specify. I'm inclined to say no, since the rules do no specify, but thematically it doesn't fit?

"Explosive Traps: These traps are built from jars of oil of impact or oil of destruction alchemy rigged to
break open and explode when triggered. These traps need a phys-rep, which must be a vial or a bottle
that is 1 cubic inch per three gas globes attached. These traps explode in a 10ft radius when triggered;
deal full damage to all characters within that distance. After that, the trap is used up and is no longer
of any use. Oil of Impacts adds 5 Alchemical fire damage to the explosive trap, Oil of Destruction adds
10"

We've used explosive traps to cause chain reactions many times in the past. The rules used have been that any other armed explosive or alchemical traps caught in the blast of an explosion are also triggered (and may themselves set off further armed traps). The volatile nature of explosive traps is one of the main reasons explosives of any kind are a controlled material.

So one in the hand, 3 in the pockets is a thing that would work without extensive/complicated string connecting?

I mean, they all have to be ARMED, and if any of the ones in your pocket go off early, you're boned, and you'll be in the middle of the explosion regardless, but yeah?
