Pain of Glass


A ladder reaches up almost to a window just big enough to haul yourself through.

Mechanical Trap

The glass in the window above has been broken, and some jagged shards have been left in the window sill. The window is 20 feet above the the ground, and 5 feet above the top of the ladder.

Small bits of glass below the ladder can be spotted with a DC 12 Wisdom check (Perception). Once a creature is within 10 feet of the window, a DC 14 Wisdom (Perception) check will reveal that a slight breeze moves through the window.

If a creature climbs through the window by grabbing the sill, the sill makes a +2 melee attack for 1d4 piercing damage. If the creature is damaged, the creature must make a DC 14 Dexterity (Acrobatics) saving throw or fall, taking 2d6 falling damage.
