You trace mystic runes upon a book, map, scroll, or similar object bearing written information. The ex-plosive runes detonate when read, dealing 6d6 points of force damage. Anyone next to the explosive runes takes the full damage with no saving throw; any other creature within 10 feet of the explosive runes is entitled to a Reflex save for half damage. The object on which the explosive runes were writ-ten also takes full damage (no saving throw).

You and any characters you specifically instruct can read the protected writing without triggering the explosive runes. Likewise, you can remove the explosive runes whenever desired.
