Moon Door

As the moonlight shines in through the window, a door appears where there was none before.

Magical Trap


The door is a very well magically concealed secret door. At night, the moonlight exposes it, but also causes damage.

When there is no moonlight, the only way the secret door can be spotted is either with a detect magic, or a successful DC 20 Wisdom check.

When a target enters the space in front of the door, several runes appear. These runes are written in draconic and are various warnings about the door. At the same time, the target is engulfed in ghostly flames and takes 2d10 radiant damage, or half as much on a successful DC 12 Constitution saving throw.

While in the light, the door can be opened. Opening the door any other way requires a dispel magic. (DC 20).

A detect magic detects an aura of evocation on the door. A DC 20 Intelligence (Arcana) check reveals faint traces of runes on the wall, their residual magic flickering slightly.

The damaging moonlight can be removed with a dispel magic, however, that also removes the ability to easily open the door.
