Name: Light Grenades

Type: Arcane Arms
Model: Grenade
Spell: Light

Intent:
Ever since he was hired by a certain someone to get rid of the Shade population in the area, Alec has been thinking of a way to properly combat them. After some experimentation during a rough encounter with seven Shades and their ring leader, Alec found that Light, one of the most basic, primitive spells in his book, had one of the best effects, and considered what might happen if he could increase its size and strength. So, he concocted these, anti-Shade weapons that would be harmless to anyone else.

I have no qualms with light grenades, they seem simple enough, and though he does have a plethora of available equipment, this doesn't seem too imbalancing.

However, is this light mystically imbued with particular power? When I read the shade entry in the bestiary, it seemed to me that shades were only hampered by real light, but not really harmed or held back; they in fact were further harmed and or held back by the pure light of the sun. Would this be a simple light spell that just illuminates an area and hampers shades with normal light, or would these grenades emit pure sunlight that cause shades to go rageface?

Also, there's the specifications of Selas' moonlight, but that's a different issue, and I don't think you're trying to bring those elements into these grenades; I'm rambling at this point.

Just curious as to the fullest effect of these light grenades.

They can be harmed by more than just sunlight; light in general is bad for them in many ways.

That said, it's white light, so as far as appearances go, it looks the same as sunlight, and It's strength is comparable to sunlight in the brightest region. But there are no mythical properties to it; none of Aten's influence.

Sunlight is the best weapon against Shades. These would do almost as well, hindering them at the very least. They might also double as flash grenades.

I feel that so long as these hinder shades and sunlight fearing baddies, these are kosher. I don't think they should work as Flashbangs, but could still be hampering in the fact that its a bright light shining into your eyes. Battles have been won and lost due to the position of soldiers and the sunlight being poured into their faces.

It's not a flashbang, no, there is no concussive effect. Just extremely bright light that lasts for a long time in a fixed radius.

If this light has no mythic properties, would it hurt Vampires?

I don't think so, because even though it hampers shades, shades are shadow manifest, so it stands to reason that they would be hampered in bright areas.

I think it would deter them at the very least, but I don't expect it to hurt them unless they got into the most intense part of the light. I'm not totally clear on our vampire lore regarding plain powerful lights and sunlight. Even so, it's safe to assume that standing around in it for a minute might cause them trouble but definitely won't cause serious harm to them on its own. This was specifically meant to work against shades, because they can't take light in any form.
