Greenhouse Gasses


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

I’m watching a show and they are in a cave.

As the PC’s descend into the cave complex, it slowly gets hotter and the air gets harder to breathe. After a time, PC’s become fatigued, then exhausted, and eventually, unconscious where they will die.

Meteor


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

I was reading about kinetic weapons

A meteor falls from the sky, landing near the party. It could be small, but that would be no fun. It should be the size of a barn and do some truly epic damage.

Canon Manhole Cover


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

Sewers… it’s always sewers

The PC’s come across a cleverly concealed manhole cover that offers them access to the sewers, or lower, hidden levels, or even a way out. The cover actually covers the barrel of a giant cannon, which fires as soon as the cover is removed.

Gateway to Another Dimension


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

Not Cthulhu related…

The PC’s come across what appears to be a large stone gateway, with swirling stars in the middle, looking like some kind of portal. The portal reacts to detection spells and physical contact. Should anyone cast a detection spell, like detect magic, or actually physically break the plane of the gateway, it opens up into the vacuum of space, sucking the party into an airless vacuum, with no return portal on the other side.

Bouncy Floor and a Very, Very, Big Rock


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

Seems fun.

The exit to the cave is blocked by a huge boulder. After some investigation, it appears that the rock can be tipped over by some special machinery towards the top by a single character. The floor of the cavern is actually somewhat springy, but it takes something very large, like a very big rock, to notice. When the rock is toppled, the floor acts like a trampoline, hurtling the party into the craggy ceiling.

Gravity


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

I just spent some time getting my encumbrance down to “light” on my pfs character…

The PC’s go underground, and suddenly, gravity increases. Speed is reduced by half, items weight twice as much, checks that require movement, like jump, climb, etc are increased by 4, and attack rolls and reflex saves have a -4 penalty. Ranged melee increments are also halved.

Herding Cats


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

They aren’t kids but close enough…

The PC’s come into a maze of tunnels. Not only do they have to navigate the tunnels, they run into strange cats on the way. Using handle animal or some other skill, they need to herd the cats along towards the exit. If they don’t, they begin to emit high pitched screeching sounds that slowly drive the PC’s insane. The screeching goes down if they manage to herd the cats in the correct direction.

Teleport Room


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

This one is more annoying than deadly. Until it becomes deadly.

Every time a pc takes an action, they are randomly teleported to another spot in the room. This also includes spells, so that targeted fireball? Yeah, random spot in room.

Wall of Force


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

Sort of goes with yesterday’s ash trap…

The PC’s come across a wall of force blocking their way. The only way around it is to dispel it. However, the floor is also a wall of force, covered in sand or bricks that just happen to cloak the magic effect from detect magic and the like. There is a several hundred foot drop into acid or lava, unless the party has flying spells, then the drop is not far enough to give them time to cast.

Pressurized Potion Bottle


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

Let’s try this.

A single ceramic potion bottle sits on a table, and can’t be moved. It is a valve on top of a large tank of pressurized acid. If it is opened, hundreds of gallons of caustic acid explode into the room.
