Watch Out for that... ouch...


“I open door number one” 
“Watch Out for that… ouch… ”

as far as i know i came up with this

The PCs come to a hallway, about 15ft wide and 100ft long. On the right side of the hall there are 10 doors, evenly spaced apart. The area in front of each door to accross the hall is rigged with pressure sensitive floor panels, if over 50lbs is applied to the area in front of a door or the door is opened, a log will be launched through the door and crush anyone directly in front of the door. The logs are launched with great speed and force and about the size of telephone poles, saves and such are at the DMs discretion.

Ouch indeed... I can imagine that would be painful. Why would such a trap be built? Is something being concealed, or are we simply dealing with an unusually antisocial wizard or something?

Kind of reminds me of hurricane testing doors, though they only use 2x4s'

It needs a hidden area where the trap builder and his minions can watch while drinking beer, like a bunch of rednecks with a bug light.

Neat as a stub, but it would be nice to see it built into a larger submission.

Even though I have used them, I dislike the "bang your dead traps". And this has no story, narrative, cryptology, culture or illustrative text to really make it anything more than "man gets hit with big stick".

Simple, effective, a stand-alone trap that can be put in front of any door by any NPC worth his trapmaking salt. I can see it being scaled to a certain point when it comes to lethality as well. I don't feel like this one needs a background, as this is the sort of thing every run of the mill trapmaker could construct.

Idea from the Aeneid. Could make an intriguing encounter when searching for firewood..."Quite near there happened to be a mound of earth, at the highest part of which were growing thickets of cornel and a dense cluster of spiky myrtle-stems. I went up there and tried to wrench the green growth from the ground to provide a leafy covering for our altar. There I was confronted by a horrible and astounding miracle. For from the first bush which I tried to break off...blood oozed in dark drops, fouling the earth with its spots...A piteous moan came from the base of the mound and I heard a human voice answering me: 'Why, Aeneas, must you rend a poor sufferer? I am buried here...for I am Polydorus. Here death overpowered me in a crop of piercing iron-pointed spears. And so a crop resembling javelins has grown over me...'"
