Poison Ivy

A small chest sits under the table.

Mechanical Trap


The chest has been coated with poison ivy oil.

A DC 12 Wisdom (Perception) check detects an oily sheen on the chest.

A DC 16 Intelligence (Nature) check reveals this oil to be from a plant and a likely irritant.

When the chest is opened, the target must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the target will develop a rash in 1d4 hours. This rash lasts for 1d4 days and confers disadvantage to all skill checks and Dexterity-based rolls.

This rash can be removed with a lesser restoration.

The oil can be removed by applying soap and water to the chest for 2 rounds. If gloves or a cloth are used to open the chest, it will bypass the oil with a successful DC 8 Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check. However, these items need to be washed in soap or discarded immediately. If they are put away before being washed, the target must make the Constitution check as above.
