Exposed Nails


A small crawlspace leads under the wall to the next area.

Mechanical Trap


The crawlspace is dark and has lots of exposed nails.

In order to avoid the nails, it requires a DC 14 Dexterity (Acrobatics) check when moving through.

A DC 12 Wisdom (Perception) check spots lots of rusty nails. If successful,  this grants advantage on the Acrobatics check.

A DC 14 Intelligence (Wisdom) check reveals that the rusty substance on the nails can cause an infection.

When a target moves through the hallway, if the Acrobatics check fails, they take 1d2 points of slashing damage and must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the wound is infected and can only be healed with a Lesser Restoration or the like.

Until healed, the target can only regain HP by magical means.
