The Rain of Toads

The unwitting players tromping through the swamp won't know what hit them.

The unwitting players are travelling through a swampy forest, but unknown to them, it is owned by a vicious swamp tribe. They have set up a huge net of hemp above the characters heads. The characters have been stepping on snapping twigs. Every time a twig snaps, the string connected to it also breaks. When enough strings snap, the net falls, dropping huge clouds of poisonous toads upon them. If the players somehow survive the deadly tree-toad poison, the smell of the toad-flesh attracts the swamp's vicious Trogodons (Alligator-Centaurs).

Cunning but not the most orginal thing out there.

It's a nice trap idea - I like the image of raining toads.

Great idea, poor execution. Yes, I know it is just the basic idea transferred from V1. Now you got a chance to change that and I will surely change my vote once you do that :)

How do they keep the toads alive in well up in teh net? Surely they don't go up there and feed them all the time?

That's what you will find out in the next wpisode of 'Toad adventure'.

*Sigh*, if only CP updates this post.

Great basic idea, will check up on it in a few weeks to see if it's fleshed out.

It deserves it. I will hold on to my vote until then.
