Bear Trap Under Rug

A thin rug runs the length of the hallway.

Mechanical Trap


Hidden under the rug in a hold in the floor is a bear trap.

A DC 12 Wisdom (Perception) check detects a small indentation i the middle of the rug. 

When a target walks on the middle of the rug, they must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw. On a failure, they take 2d6 bludgeoning and piercing damage as the bear trap closes on their leg. They are also restrained.

It requires a DC 14 Strength check to open the trap, or a DC 12 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools. Failure on either causes an additional 1d6 damage.

Once spotted, the trap is easily avoided.
