Hornet Nest


The door ahead appears to be stuck.

Mechanical Trap

The door is stuck a bit. On the other side, a hornet nest covers part of the door and wall.

A DC 14 Wisdom (Perception) check detects a buzzing sound on the other side of the door and some of the light coming through the seams is blocked by a sticky object.

The door requires a DC 8 Strength check to force open. When it is forced open, it breaks the hornet nest. All creatures within 30′ of the door are attacked by hornets. This is a +4 melee attack for 1d6 damage. On a successful hit, the target must make a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1d4 minutes.

The nest can be removed by inserting an object, like a long knife or sword into the seams of the door and cutting the nest. After 1 minute, the hornets will have dispersed.
