Blinking Chest


Several ironbound wooden chests sit on the floor.

Magical Trap

The chest contents blink to another chest when the lid is opened.

When the lid of a chest is opened, the contents disappear and reappear in another chest. Then the lid closes.

An aura of transmutation can be detected on each chest with detect magic or a successful DC 14 Intelligence (Arcana) check.

Dispel magic  or a DC 16 Intelligence (Arcana) check dispels the transmutation effect on a single chest. Once dispelled, this chest will no longer be the target of the treasure.

A DC 16 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools can remove the lid or jam it open. If a lid is open when the contents have been moved, the contents can be removed.
