The Golden Spiral Door

By:

A Door of Mathematical Proportions

This Door is a Mathematical nightmare for the Unprepared. When the Victim, I mean person, turns the handle a certain number of clicks the door opens to reveal what lays behind.  The door inner workings are visible but unattainable unless you have the master key. Based off of Leonardo of Pisa, who was known as Fibonacci.

 

The Trap is set as a Master sequence is pulled by a set of clicks on the knob. Denoting the correct sequence or path a ball bearing must take to complete a circuit or raw energy in this case ( for simplicity sake) electricity( could be any form be it magnets or magic).

 

The patter of the Fibonacci sequence is such

Say you wanted to go to your library and it is the 4 room designated on your door

You would turn the nob counter-clockwise one click, then one click ,then 2 clicks, then 3 clicks. Then turn the nob clockwise to engage the circuit. The Door would then open to your library.

As you can see the higher the number can add security to your rooms as well. You could put a trap behind any of the door clicks or all of them. thus makeing a room you can enter but cannot leave impossible to figure out. And since the Door is made of A Glass/Plastic Composite as well as a Mechanial lever, Magic will not work on it because of the frequency of it acts the same as electricty thus setting off any number of outcomes...all being bad of couse...

the door is simply that, a door, litterly propped up against the wall if you break the door then you cant go anywhere.you can move the door. you can do whatever but if you break it then you go nowhere...

Manfred, your idea of an elevator intrigues me. if continuing along this line of thinking you could really have something simmilar to the glass elevator of willy wonka (sorry about bring him in here, but it works) where the numbers are listed as buttons but not in order of the sequence thus figuring out the sequence is impractical yet time consuming.

you could litterly hit a button in the correct sequence such as with the library on the 4th "door" such as hitting the buttons 1,1,2,3 thus entering the library. thus making higher numbers and combinations possible...

Can it be broken down by force?

That would depend on the construction of course. Everything can be broken down, the question is what you get of it.

The Fibonacci sequence is simple enough to make people guessing, and rises fairly swiftly, so anything beyond ten becomes too impractical for use. You could encode something like an elevator with this, the destruction of the mechanism could destroy the whole cabin and drop the passengers down a _very_ deep hole.

Basic, but it has its appeal.

It´s a good idea, although somewhat cliché, even though the Fibonacci sequence is a nice touch. I would try to give it a spin in some "unexpected" direction.

Other than that, give it a grammar and spelling overhaul. As it is, it is kind of hard to read.

I´m withholding my vote for the time being, waiting for you to polish it up a bit.

Cheers,

David

I agree with Ouroboros - it does need a fair amount of polish. There are a lot of half sentences -
eg: "Based off of Leonardo of Pisa, who was known as Fibonacci."

If you are saying that this idea was inspired by the works of Leonardo of Pisca, also known as Fibonacci, then say so in a complete sentence.

After a long night of reveling and merriment celebrating their latest victory, one of the PCs awakens with his/her head shaved and a large ornate tattoo on top of their head. Tacky, yes but also a painstaking work of art that has left them with a headache to beat their hangover. The kicker? It is a huge symbol of the god of Evil, Assassins, the Drow, Munchkins, something really really offensive
