Acid Lock


An open window is here.

Mechanical Trap


The lock mechanism is ceramic and sits in a pool of acid.

A DC 12 Wisdom (Perception) check detects moisture on the inside of the lock.

A DC 14 Intelligence (Investigation) check identifies liquid in the lock as acid.

The lock can be picked with a DC 14 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools. Failure by more than 5 destroys the delicate mechanism, permanently jamming the lock.

However, once the lock picks are used, they are destroyed. If they are wiped down immediately after withdrawn, the lock picks have a 50% chance of being destroyed.

A small hole can be drilled in the bottom of the lock, draining the acid. If this is done, the lockpicks will not be destroyed.
