Acid Chest


An ironbound wooden chest is firmly attached to the floor.

Magical Trap

The chest fires an arrow of acid when opened.

A DC 16 Intelligence (Investigation) check reveals that one of the tumblers in the lock appears instead to be a small switch.

When the lock is opened or broken, an arrow of acid attacks the target with a +6 ranged attack. On a hit, it deals 4d4 acid damage, and an additional 2d4 acid damage at the end of the target’s next turn. On a miss, is deals 2d4 acid splash damage.

An aura of evocation can be detected on the lock with detect magic or a successful DC 14 Intelligence (Arcana) check.

Dispel magic  or a DC 16 Intelligence (Arcana) check dispels the evocation effect.

A DC 16 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools can also disable the switch in the lock.
