Catch Under Desk


An ornate desk has a single drawer that has no handle.

Mechanical Trap

The drawer is opened by a secret catch under it. The catch is surrounded by hidden razor blades.

If the area under the drawer is searched, a DC 14 Wisdom (Perception) check will reveal a small catch to open the drawer. A DC 16 Wisdom (Perception) check reveals the razors.

A creature operating the catch will take 1d4 slashing damage, and will have disadvantage on any checks or attacks that use the hands until the slashing damage is healed. If the razors have been located, a successful DC 14 Dexterity check will avoid the razor damage.

The razors can be removed with a successful DC 16 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools.
