Sure.  You could have a "grenade" skill or command.  Check to see if the
player hits the target.  If he misses, have a small chance that he hits
another person.  For example, if there was a 2% chance and there were 5
others in the room (not including the thrower or the target), then there is
a 10% chance he hits someone; randomize between the five to see who gets
it.  For splash, just have it do something like a base 2% chance, rolled
for each person, of getting splashed -- the person who gets hit and the
person throwing are exempt.

Anything is possible, it just depends on how much time you have and how
good you are. :)
