Bear Trap Stairs


A red carpet runs up the dark wooden stairs.

Mechanical Trap

Halfway up, the stair top is missing from underneath the carpet. It conceals a bear trap.

A DC 12 Perception check reveals that the carpet over the missing stairs is slightly indented.

A creature that steps onto the stair must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw or step into the bear trap. The bear trap deals 1d4 piercing damage and stops movement. A creature may make a DC 13 Strength check as an action to open the trap and free the trapped creature. A failed check deals 1 piercing damage. While trapped, the creature is restrained.

If noticed, the trap can be easily avoided.
