After blowing dozens of bubbles, the user manipulates them to surround the enemy in all directions. Only the slightest amount of physical contact with an opponent is required to make these bubbles burst, resulting in a small but powerful explosion when they do. The user can then make the entirety detonate simultaneously with a snap of their fingers.

This technique can be used to surround the target with bubbles, but also to protect the caster in a similar field. Against an opponent who tries to move through the area the bubbles occupy the bubbles will detonate from contact dealing 4d6 points of untyped damage, requiring the opponent to make a reflex save to avoid the damage. A successful save reduces the damage in half. The user need not make a save when travelling through their own bubble field.

Special Requirements:

This technique requires a bubble-utilizing pipe to use.
