Ivy Wall


A tall brick wall is covered with vines and a trellis.

Magical Trap

The ivy will actively try to pull off any climbers.

The combo of vines and trellis make this 30′ tall brick wall easy to climb. It requires a DC 10 Strength (Athletics) check with advantage to successfully climb the wall.

However, when a target nears the top, the vines will animate and try to pull the climbing creature off of the wall. A climbing creature must make a successful DC 14 Dexterity saving throw to avoid the vines. Creatures that fail the saving throw have disadvantage on their climb checks. A failed climb check means the creature falls, taking up to 3d6 falling damage.

A spell or other effect that can sense the presence of magic, such as Detect Magic, reveals an aura of transmutation on the vines.

A spell such as Dispel Magic cast onto the vines will not only keep them from animating, but will also kill them. The vines wither, die and fall off the wall in 1d4 rounds. This removes the advantage to climb checks. Any effect that suppresses magic will suppress the vines from animating for the duration of the effect.
