Pull Stairs


A rope dangles from a long trapdoor in the ceiling.

Mechanical Trap

The rope pulls down a staircase that leads upwards. Several cannonballs have been stacked on the stairs.

A DC 14 Wisdom (Perception) check reveals that the trapdoor is bulging slightly in the middle.

When the stairs are pulled open, the cannonballs cascade downwards. All targets in a 20′ line must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw or take 4d4 bludgeoning damage.

While the trap can’t be disarmed, it can be avoided by opening it from behind the stairs, so that the cannonballs roll away from the opener.
