Tar Pit

This trap has a cover constructed from material identical to the floor around it that opens the floor into a shallow pool of tar, sticking and slowing anyone caught in it.

Effect: Targets all creatures within 20 ft., The floor opens into a shallow pool of tar, halving the speed of anyone in the area. The tar sticks to them, continuing to slow their movements until the tar is scraped off.

Trigger: cover, activates when a creature steps on the false floor and drops into the trap.

Countermeasures: Once the trap is detected with a successful DC 10 Wisdom (Perception) check, an iron spike or similar object can be wedged between the cover and the surrounding floor in such a way as to prevent the cover from opening, thereby making it safe to cross. The cover can also be magically held shut using the arcane lock spell or similar magic.

Freezing the tar will cause anyone currently submerged to become restrained, but otherwise make it possible to walk full speed on top of a slippery surface.

Destroying Traps

Traps can be damaged and destroyed, sometimes to good or bad effect. Pipes containing fire or poison will rupture and spray over the area, while mechanisms can be rendered inoperable with enough force. Determine the HP and AC of your traps based on the tables below. Sometimes a fragile trap is more dangerous than a resilient one if destroying it will fill the corridor with acid.
