Gold Coins

The ceramic chest is full of gold coins.

Magical Trap


The chest is full of gold. It’s just melted and protected by an illusion that makes it appear as coins.

A DC 14 Intelligence (Arcana) check detects slight visual anomalies about the coins, such as they seem to shimmer slightly.

If a target takes the coins, they take 4d6 fire damage, with a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw halving the damage. Also, on a failure, the chest breaks, dispelling the illusion as molten gold flows about the area. All targets within 10′ must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw or take 3d6 fire damage.

A detect magic detects an aura of illusion on the coins. 

A dispel magic dispels the illusion and shows a ceramic chest full of molten gold. This also causes the heat to be felt from nearby as well.
