Hellcat Office


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

I was offered a suggestion…

The PC’s come across a cluttered office that triggers allergies. At some point in the exploration, all the papers animate, slicing everything in sight in a whirlwind of paper and debris.

Micro Teleporters


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

This is sort of how my golf game went the few times I tried.

There is a treasure in the middle of the room, with various lethal hazards around it that have to be avoided, like pits, spikes, acid, lava, etc. Also around the room are a whole bunch of micro transporters. These should activate when a PC gets near a hazard and is about to jump, make an acrobatics check or anything like that. It should not teleport them far, a few feet at most. But these things are everywhere and it should really make getting to the treasure a pain.

Oh, the area around the treasure is also dimensionally anchored, so actually teleporting there won’t work.

Sinkhole


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

I like mazes…

The PC’s come across some kind of maze. It can be underground tunnels, a hedge maze, whatever. The deeper the PC’s go into the maze, the slower their actions become. For example, spells start to take longer to cast, standard actions become full-round, movement becomes standard and slower, etc. Once they locate a way out, and start in that direction, time begins to normalize.

Shattering Floor


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

My good friend relayed a cooking incident to me…

The PCs come across a large glass floor. The glass floor is extremely hot. Several pipes run down the walls. If the PCs move across the floor, even if the fly, the pipes discharge cool water onto the floor, causing it to explode in a shower of sharp glass. For good measure, there is a lava pit underneath the floor, so the water sends up pillars of scalding steam as well.

Sick Room


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

A friend of mine got sick…

The PC’s enter a large area, covered in snow. As they get closer, they realize that the ground is not covered in snow and ice, rather it’s covered in rags and mucous. Anyone that comes within 100′ must make a Fortitude Save or become sick in 1d4+1 days. Their eyes itch, they cough and sneeze, they throw up, and they get diarrhea. This imposes all kinds of penalties.

Collander


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

I made pasta over the weekend…

The PC’s come across a huge, bowl shaped room. On closer inspection, the ground seems to be made of a fine wire mesh. When the PC’s get about halfway across, the floor under the mesh drops away, revealing a roiling lava pit below, which quickly heats up the mesh, and causes the bowl to fold in on itself. It continues to do so until it starts to crush the PC’s, who of course, get strained through the mesh.

Respawn


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

Been playing some WoW.

The PC’s get to the end of their dungeon, and have claimed their prize. When they try to leave, however, all traps, monsters and obstacles have been reset; they have to fight their way back out.

Rot Grub Explosion


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

Rot grubs…

The PC’s enter a large chamber, with a weak looking ceiling. At some point, the ceiling collapses, raining down thousands of rot grubs.

Tax Day


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

Tax season is starting…

The PC’s walk into an office. Forms are piled up on a desk. They are declaration forms. The PC’s must fill them out and declare all items worth more than 100 gp. After they do that, a total flashes on the paper, totaling 5% of the value of their items. If they do not pay, or if they do not declare items, when they leave the room, unpaid for or undeclared items are teleported into a safe several hundred miles away.

It’s a Party


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

Happy New Year!

The PC’s come across a party. Fireworks, noisemakers, food, drink are all lined up, ready for the festivities. Everything is bejeweled and decked out in precious metals. However, the owner is one very possessive lich. Those that take anything get to become part of the festivities, permanently, becoming undead minions of the lich, forced into servitude for all time.
