False Stairs with a spike pit

This trap uses a trip wire that causes the stairs to fold in and create a perfectly smooth slide. Creatures on the stairs will fall and slide rapidly to the bottom.

Effect: Targets all creatures on it, steep stairs become a slick slide, causing targets to fall and take 29 (4d10) damage and be knocked prone

Trigger: trip wire, activates when wire is tripped.

Countermeasures: A successful DC 15 Wisdom (Perception) check will spot the trip wire, and a DC 15 Dexterity check using thieves' tools disables the trip wire harmlessly. A character without thieves' tools can attempt this check with disadvantage using any edged weapon or edged tool. On a failed check, the trap triggers.

A web spell or similar can stop creatures from falling down the surface. A set of climbing tools can be used to safely scale the slide.

Ice Spear Trap

A door or chest is rigged to activate when opened, which causes ice to shoot out

Effect: +6 to hit against one target, DC 15 DEX save or take 12 (4d10) cold damage

Trigger: door, activates when a door or chest is opened.

Countermeasures: Spotting the attached wire is a DC 15 Wisdom (Perception) check. A successful DC 15 Dexterity check using thieves' tools breaks the wire attached to the door harmlessly. A character without thieves' tools can attempt this check with disadvantage using any edged weapon or edged tool. On a failed check, the trap triggers.

Destroying the trap will rupture the pipes and spray ice over the area, if fire damage is used the ice will melt and become water.

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.
