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!

In a crowded marketplace, a man is standing on a soapbox, orating. Some of the crowd are cheering, some hissing, some standing around saying "I can't hear a bl**dy word he's saying". It's a hustings for an election. The PCs can either leave, or stay and listen. If they do the latter, then they can vote too, and they might get quite involved in the cheering. Depending on who wins they might get quite involved in the post-election brawl too...

There are numerous possibilities with this encounter: the PCs might end up talking to one of the nervous candidates before their speech, and offer encouragement and support. Of course this candidate may well turn out to be someone with outspokenly unorthodox views, and the crowd don't take kindly to s/his supporters. Or maybe the seemingly innocuous candidate turns out to be a complete racist, and the PCs wander off embarrassedly, pretending they weren't talking to this person five minutes ago.
