Traps

This material is Open Game Content, and is licensed for public use under the terms of the Open Game License v1.0a.

Types of Traps: A trap can be either mechanical or magic in nature. Mechanical traps include pits, arrow traps, falling blocks, water-filled rooms, whirling blades, and anything else that depends on a mechanism to operate. A mechanical trap can be constructed by a PC through successful use of the Craft (trapmaking) skill (see Designing a Trap, below, and the skill description).

Magic traps are further divided into spell traps and magic device traps. Magic device traps initiate spell effects when activated, just as wands, rods, rings, and other magic items do. Creating a magic device trap requires the Craft Wondrous Item feat (see Designing a Trap and the feat description).

Spell traps are simply spells that themselves function as traps. Creating a spell trap requires the services of a character who can cast the needed spell or spells, who is usually either the character creating the trap or an NPC spellcaster hired for the purpose.

Mechanical Traps

Dungeons are frequently equipped with deadly mechanical (nonmagical) traps. A trap typically is defined by its location and triggering conditions, how hard it is to spot before it goes off, how much damage it deals, and whether or not the heroes receive a saving throw to mitigate its effects. Traps that attack with arrows, sweeping blades, and other types of weaponry make normal attack rolls, with a specific attack bonus dictated by the trap's design.

Creatures who succeed on a DC 20 Search check detect a simple mechanical trap before it is triggered. (A simple trap is a snare, a trap triggered by a tripwire, or a large trap such as a pit.)

A character with the trap sense class feature who succeeds on a DC 21 (or higher) Search check detects a well-hidden or complex mechanical trap before it is triggered. Complex traps are denoted by their triggering mechanisms and involve pressure plates, mechanisms linked to doors, changes in weight, disturbances in the air, vibrations, and other sorts of unusual triggers.

After being pulled aside by Velon along with Mari, Perry says, "I'm sorry, Mari. I chose you because I believed in you. Because you're my dear apprentice and, more importantly, someone who I really trust to have my back." He smiles softly and continues, "Still, I should have asked you. But you really were cool as a T-rex you know. You had a blonde stripe down your back."

Once all the looting and whatnot is over, Perry approaches the female gnome alongside Poljen and Velon. He interrupts whatever conversation is taking place and says, "Hey, sorry for the interrupt here, but I think I have an idea. We still have a big army out there to deal with. Poljen, Velon, what do you say we flop Cyanwrath's body down in front of them? I might be able to convince them to surrender or at the very least demoralize the majority of them enough to make them flee. Whadaya think?"
