Illusion Lock

A complex-looking lock holds the chest shut.

Magical Trap


The lock is an illusion and hides a simpler, non-locking mechanism for opening the chest.

A DC 17 Intelligence (Investigation) check reveals the illusion.

The chest itself requires a DC 14 Intelligence (Investigation) check to open. If the illusion has not been detected, this is at disadvantage.

A detect magic or similar spell or a DC 17 Intelligence (Arcana) check detects an aura of illusion on the chest.

A dispel magic (DC 17) cast on the chest dispels the lock illusion.
