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.

Ringworld-based game , anyone

       By: Kawaresksenjajok

hey im new to this site but was here years ago w/ another name. anyways dont remember so im newbie by default.
Firstly, I am a sci-fi reader and I hope to meet success with my writing.
My favorite series of books are Larry Nivens RINGWORLD tetralogy (Ringworld, RingWorld Engineers, The RingWorld Throne, and RingWorlds Children)
For those that havnt read the ring world is the greatest artificial structere ever discovered.
A ring, its circumference equal to earths orbit, it is built around a sol-like star. Shadow squares halfway betwwn the ring and the sun provide 15 hours of night in a thirty hour day. 70 days equals one falan (one full rotation of ring world. The inner surface-the one exposed to the sun, is terraformed and is one millionkmwide cntrifugal force provides gravity, and rim walls 1000km high keep the atmosphere in. Population of RNH(ringworld native hominids)
estimated in the trillions.
The origins of who built it and why are too sticky to get into. But the ringworld , millions of years ago, was populated bt A race called Pak Protectors. Protectors are ancestors of all homo sapiens. they populated ringworld with homo erectus, but left no predators in the ecology. hence, hominids evolved into every ecological niche. (Vampires, Carrion Eaters, Giant Herbivores, Small Carnivores, some built great technologies and went interstellar. Oh, and ringworld is 300 million times the surface area of earth. post if youre interested, Ill elabortae on native species and alien vistors
