Wooden Bowl


A wooden bowl, full of gems, sits on a small table in an alcove.

Mechanical Trap

The bowl is at the end of a catapult arm and is delicately balanced. Removing weight cause the catapult to fire.

A DC 12 Intelligence (Investigation) check reveals that the bowl does not sit flush with the table. Further examination shows that the bowl is connected to something under the table.

When weight is removed, the target must make a DC 14 Dexterity save or be launched by the catapult across the room into the far wall. The target takes 6d6 bludgeoning damage and is knocked prone.

The catapult can be disabled by a successful DC 14 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools. This removes the small counterweight that can detect weight removal.
