I will go with the BP Oil Refinery Blast. A center for an important resource goes boom.
Jvstin’s entry is a great one, nudging me to go in a completely different direction.
“…besides you knew the job was dangerous when you took it.”
(I consider it a good and just thing that Google returns over fifty results for spikard and boom.)

Benedict is visiting Amber. On a sunny afternoon without warning he explodes. Gone. KaBoom.
Buildings are damaged, people hurt, and confusion spreads through the family. At first, Corwin’s gunpowder is blamed. Someone has discoverd the secret, folks suppose.
Twenty-four hours. Fiona arriving at lunch explodes. Gone. KaBoom.
The castle is damaged, people hurt, and panic spreads. Witnesses saw no attack. Other family members realize that the next twenty-four hours will be very tense.
Who is the enemy? Is Bleys the next target? Is the clock ticking in Amber or is there some other cycle in shadow that rules these attacks? Can the PCs solve a mystery that blind-sided such legendary resources in time?
