Horse Tie Off


Several posts with horse tie offs sit in front of the old keep.

Mechanical Trap

The tie offs are rigged to emit a loud noise when pressure is applied, and then fall out.

A DC 12 Intelligence (Investigation) check reveals wear marks on the tie offs, as if they can move in and out.

When a horse is tied off and applies some pressure, the post emits a high-pitched whistle that can be heard in a 120 foot radius. This scare the horse off, who runs away. When the horse runs away, the tie off slides out of the post.

A DC 14 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools disables the whistling and unlock mechanism on the tie off.
