The Giant's Lair Door


"That is one really big door"

(NOTE: This trap wasn’t created by myself… see "The Small List of Traps" for more details.)

Ideal to install in a Giant’s lair, or that of some other great creature. It is a door. There are other doors like this, great and massive, hard to open for little folks we are. This one is a bit different:

As other doors, it has a single handle to open and close, no lock. But its hinges are on the BOTTOM side of the door.

If you manage to push it, it falls with a crash. If you pull it, it opens… right on you. The door is made of stone or iron and extremely heavy. Ouch.

Trap was made by one Kevin Sullivan, credit goes hence to him.

It is a funny trap. While it does not make me laugh nor deserve the "silly" free-text, it does make me smile about it and its applications.

A nice idea. I think a player would notice this, but maybe not. I mean, we always know whether to push or pull a door in real life... is this because of convention, or because we unconciously observe?

Just to note, it is very easy to build a door that can be opened in one way only.

And I still love this one.

I don't know about you others, but I did laugh out loud when I read this!

Imagine that happening. HA!

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
