Oiled Stair


A circular staircase leads downward.

Mechanical Trap

One of the stairs has been oiled, making it very slippery.

A DC 12 Wisdom (Perception) check reveals that one of the stairs about 1/3 of the way down has a glossy sheen.

When a target steps on this stair, they must make a DC 10 Dexterity saving throw or fall, taking 2d6 bludgeoning damage as they tumble down the stairs and are prone when they hit the bottom.

The trap can be disabled by cleaning the stair, which takes 1 minute. The stair can also be bypassed with a successful DC 5 Dexterity (Acrobatics) check. Failure results in a fall.
