Falling Trees


A small path winds through the thickly wooded forest.

Mechanical Trap


Two of the trees have been cut and placed back on their stumps. They are connected together by a low hanging rope, concealed beneath underbrush.

A DC 12 Wisdom (Perception) check reveals that the pile of leaves and underbrush ahead looks unnatural.

A DC 12 Intelligence (Investigation) check spots that two of the trees appear to be misaligned with their bases.

When a target walks through the pile with the rope underneath, the two trees fall inward. The target must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw or take 4d6 bludgeoning damage.

Simply cutting the rope and/or pushing the trees over neutralizes the trap.
