Chopping Armoire


An armoire sits in the corner.

Mechanical Trap

An axe is spring loaded inside the main part of the armoire and chops down when the doors or drawers are opened.

A DC 14 Perception (Wisdom) check reveals some visible springs attached to the inside of the top doors. A DC 14 Intelligence (Investigation) check shows that these springs are coiled and holding the door shut.

When the doors or a drawer is opened, the doors spring open, and an axe chops down. The axe make a +4 melee attack for 1d8 slashing damage.

The springs inside the doors can be disabled with a DC 14 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools. Failure by more than 5 sets off the trap.
