Cannon Latch


A sturdy wooden gate is here. A string hangs from it, presumably to pull the latch,.

Mechanical Trap

The string does not connect to a latch; instead it connects to a cannon filled with buckshot.

A DC 14 Wisdom (Perception) check reveals that the gate has been recently repaired as the wood is newer than the surrounding materials.

If the string is pulled or the gate opened without disabling,  the cannon fires. +4 ranged attack for 3d6 piercing damage to all creatures in a 30′ cone.

The cannon trap can be disabled by simply cutting the string and feeding it back through the small hole in the gate.
