Invisible Bucket


A thick wooden door leads to the next room.

Magical Trap

An invisible bucket of acid sits above the door.

When the door is opened, the bucket of acid falls down. The target takes 2d8 acid damage, or half of that on a successful DC 14 Dexterity saving throw. All creatures within 5 feet take 1d4 splash damage, with a successful DC 12 Dexterity saving throw halving this damage.

An aura of illusion above the door can be detected with detect magic or a successful DC 14 Intelligence (Arcana) check.

Dispel magic or a successful DC 16 Intelligence (Arcana) check causes the bucket to become visible. Of course, it’s on the other side, but when the bucket is visible a successful save avoids damage.
