Blaze Canister

AC 15; durability 10; damaged by tear, fire.

Tear. When tear damage reduces the canister's durability to zero, it breaks off and falls in a randomly determined adjacent space. 1 blaze can be salvaged from the component.

Fire. When fire damage reduces the canister's durability to zero, it explodes. Every creature within 10 feet must make a DC 12 finesse saving throw or take 10 (3d6) fire damage and suffer the burning condition, taking 3 fire damage for 1d4 turns or until the condition is removed. On a successful save, a creature takes only half damage and isn't burning. The strider automatically fails its saving throw.
