Personal Journal

A locked diary is in the drawer.

Magical Trap


The diary has an extra-planar guardian that causes the reader to go insane.

A warning has been written on the diary in draconic, “Read my thoughts; lose yours”.

The diary can be opened without the key with a successful DC 14 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools. Forcing it open destroys the diary. However, if opened without the key, the target must make a DC 15 Intelligence saving throw or take 6d6 psychic damage and go insane.

While insane, the target may not take actions, can’t understand speech, can’t read and speaks in gibberish. A greater restoration spell or long rest ends the insanity.

A detect magic or DC 19 Intelligence (Arcana) check detects an aura of divination on the book.

The effect on the book can be neutralized with a  dispel magic. (DC 15)
