Pressure Chest


A iron chest is here.

Mechanical Trap


The iron chest is filled with gold coins, but the chest has been pressurized. Opening it causes the coins to explode outwards.

A DC 14 Wisdom (Perception) check detects a small valve on the back of the chest.

A DC 14 Intelligence (Investigation) check reveals that the chest is warmer than it should be.

When the chest is opened, the pressure blows it open, showering the area in gold coins. All targets within 5′ take 2d6 bludgeoning damage, with a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw halving this damage.

The valve can be operated with a successful DC 11 Intelligence (Investigation) check. When opened, it will make a hissing noise, and when the noise stops 1d4 rounds later, the chest is safe to open.
