Glitter Chest


A iron chest is here.

Mechanical Trap


The iron chest’s lock is filled with glitter that explodes outwards.

A DC 14 Wisdom (Perception) check detects a small amount of glitter around the keyhole of the lock.

The lock requires the key to open, which also bypasses the trap. If picked, it requires a successful DC 14 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools to open. 

If the lock is opened without disarming it, a cloud of glitter billows forth from the lock. All targets within 5 feet are blinded for 1d6+1 rounds, or 1 round on a successful DC 14 Constitution saving throw. The targets are also covered in glitter, which give disadvantage to any stealth check except in total darkness.

A target may spend 1d4 rounds to remove the glitter from their clothes. Removing the glitter from their eyes requires a DC 10 Intelligence (Medicine) check to end the blindness early.

The trap can be avoided by taking disadvantage on the check to open the lock.
