So named because it folds up like a squeezebox, concertina wire
is the latest generation of barbed wire. It comes in 20-foot-long rolls that are stretch across the surface or fence to be protected. For each 2-foot section that a person tries to cross, he or she must make a Reflex save (DC 15) or take 1d6 points of damage
(save for half). Concertina wire
has hardness 2, 5 hp, and can only be damaged by slashing weapons
or cut with a tool
Considered by some to be the most dangerous of prey, fiends require extreme force and quick thinking to bring down. This kit contains a Beretta M3P shotgun, 10 high-explosive rounds, 10 white phosphorous rounds, 2 white phosphorous grenades, 2 fragmentation grenades, night vision goggles, holy symbols (various faiths), and 5 vials of holy water

This special device allows a person to cut through glass panes without cracking or shattering them in the process. It fits onto the glass with a suction cup and has a rotating arm that cuts a hole from 3 to 12 inches in diameter. Once the hole is cut, the suction cup is tugged, pulling out the circle of glass. The user makes a Dexterity check (DC 10) to create a hole without shattering the glass. If the check fails, the glass shatters with a loud crash.

damages undead and evil outsiders almost as if it were acid
. Typically, a flask of holy water
deals 2d4 points of damage
to an undead creature or an evil outsider on a direct hit, or 1 point of damage
if it splashes such a creature. Also, holy water
is considered blessed, which means it has special effects on certain creatures. A flask of holy water
can be thrown as a grenadelike weapon
. A flask breaks if thrown against the body of a corporeal creature, but against an incorporeal creature, the flask must be opened and the holy water
poured out onto it. Thus, you can only douse an incorporeal creature with holy water
if you are adjacent to it. Doing so is a ranged touch attack
that does not provoke an attack of opportunity
This rescue tool
is used by firefighters and aid personnel to pry open the mangled doors of auto accidents. It requires a hydraulic compressor
to work, but gives a +10 equipment bonus on Strength checks to open doors, bust through gates, and the like.
Liquid Metal Embrittlement Sprayer

After 1d6 x 10 minutes, the liquid reduces the hardness of the metal permanently by half (round down). The tank holds enough liquid to coat 50 square feet of surface. The liquid has no effect on any other type of substance.

takes 1d6 points of fire damage
. Road flares
are sold in packs of three.
Sometimes it's necessary to enter an area that someone really doesn't want you to get into. This kit is not subtle, but effective, relying on battering down doors and blasting holes through walls. Police and military
personnel are most likely to use this kit. The forced entry kit
contains the following items: Mossberg shotgun with integrated flashlight, 10 high-explosive shells, 5 beanbag
rounds, boltcutters, liquid metal embrittlement sprayer
, portable ram, sledgehammer (equivalent to warhammer
), and chainsaw.
About two dozen assorted glass spheres in a pouch. Commonly used as a toy, but also useful for checking slopes (just set one down and see which way it rolls) or as a nondamaging alternative to caltrops, one bag covers a 5-foot square. Creatures moving
through or fighting in the area must make a Balance
check (DC 15) every round they remain within that area or fall prone.
This kit is specially tailored for dealing with undead bloodsuckers. Because not all vampires are vulnerable to the same things the kit covers a variety of possiblities. The kit contains the following items: 5 wooden stakes, Mossberg shotgun, 5 white phosphorous shotgun shells, silver

or a boltcutter.
