Banner Day


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

Many of the rooms in this complex have battle banners hanging from the walls. While these banners are hanging, opponents are inspired. Whenever an opponent fails and attack roll or skill check, they are retroactively granted a +2d4 competence bonus. If this is high enough to turn the failure into a success, the roll succeeds.

Gallant Inspiration

Fall Through the Cracks


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

The top floor of this tower (reached by a very long spiral staircase) has big cracks in its paving stones. After a target has been in the room for 2 rounds, all targets take on a slick, oily appearance. Characters can squeeze into cracks with their gear with ease. The room bursts into flames, and the concussion pushes them into the floor, where they will take damage unless they let themselves form into the cracks. However, once in the cracks, they discover that they are highly viscous, and they squirt out the other side, and fall 100 feet.

Judgmental Dungeon


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

Anytime a skill check to overcome an obstacle (puzzle, hazard, trap, locked door, etc) is failed, the target is engulfed in flames that deal 1d6 damage every round for 10 rounds. A successful Will Save will cause this to only last one round. Or, if if the target tries again to defeat the obstacle and succeeds, the flames also stop.

An Expendsive Dungeon


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

The complex is very ornate. It looks like Louis XIV lived here.

Each time the targets have an encounter, each target uses up 1 of their supernatural of spell-like abilities that have a limited number of uses per day. The ability has no effect and is just used up. Magic items are not affected.

Acid Chests


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

There are several ornate treasure chests in this dungeon, and all of them are bedecked with elemental symbols.

Anyone looting the chests must make a Will save, or their hands become infused with elemental acid energy for several rounds. While your touch can cause 1 point of ongoing acid damage each round to an opponent and 1d6 acid damage, anything that you touch, including your gear, will take the same acid damage.

Divine Vessel


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

Several clay vessels line the shelves.

If any of the vessels are disturbed, they all fall and break on the ground. Each vessel corresponds to a creature in the area, which, upon encountering, transforms into a chaotic being, twice its normal size. The creatures gain a +8 size bonus to Strength, +6 size bonus to Constitution, a +3 natural armor bonus, darkvision 60ft, SR 30, DR 10/chaotic, resist cold, electricity and fire 10, +4 on save vs. poisoin, low-light vision, and a fly speed of 60 ft. (good). The creature also gains an additional 2 slam attacks of 1d6.

Heal You Later


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

A strange mist hovers just above the ground in these caverns.

While in these caverns, the effects of potions and extracts do not happen immediately. Rather, they are delayed until either 1 day passes, another potion or extract is ingested, or the targets leave the caverns. At that point, the effects happen immediately.

Delayed Consumption

Treasure!


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

Orcs are everywhere in this old keep.

One of the orcs, when he dies, produces a tattooed treasure map on his forearm (DC 15 Perception check to spot). The map is to a secret vault, within a day’s travel. However, this vault is guarded by many orcs, and the mere reading of the map causes the guardians of the vault to be on full alert. Should the PC’s actually cut the map from the orc, the map gives the guardians a +2 morale bonus to all attack rolls when they are within 60′ of the map.

Smoldering Ruins


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

Bits of smoldering embers are everywhere in this ruined complex.

Whenever a target is damaged by any means, a gout of flame bursts from the injured target to strike a random target within 30′. This requires a ranged touch attack (+15) and deals 4d6 damage. If there is no target within 30′ the flame strikes the original target. This damage does not trigger another flame attack, unless you want it to.

Chameleon Cave


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

The walls of this cave are constantly shifting. All opponents get a +4 bonus to stealth checks and any opponent more than 5ft away has concealment (20% miss chance). All of this is because the walls are adapting to the opponents’ and causing them to blend in. The brave adventurers, alas, get no such benefit.
