Steal From Me?


A gem has been left outside of a small vault.

Magical Trap

The gem is worthless. It is enchanted, and appears to be worth quite a tidy sum. Only if something like Detect Magic is used will the gem’s real value be known. If the gem is taken, a valuable item from the creature taking it is stolen.

If the gem is picked up by a creature, that creature must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw or its most valuable item not currently being carried or worn as clothing disappears. This item is transported inside of the vault.

The vault requires a DC 25 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools to open. Breaking it is difficult. It has AC 20 and 1,000 hp. If opened, the contents consist solely of the stolen item.

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

A spell such as Dispel Magic cast onto the gem will destroy the gem with a successful DC 18 spellcasting check. Any effect that suppresses magic at spell level 8 will suppress the gem abilities for the duration of the effect.
