Ding Ziu translates to 'Substitute Criminal'
A mechanical shrinking trap room. Complete the challenges before you get crushed. The name for this room is the same as the movie whose plot I got this whole idea from.
Sometimes the owner of a dungeon doesn't want to kill its intruders, just detain and embarrass them a bit.
A series of traps and puzzles that are sure to cause pause in your players without killing them..... maybe.
That looks interesting, I make a search check for loot.
Wait... what comes at me?
They're coming out of the ground, they're coming out of the damn ground, game over man, game over man!!!!
Also known as the Circle of Soul Stealing, a devious and powerful trap
Most criminals who are locked up as a punishment or to await trial are just confined in regular cellblocks or jails, but not all of them. Some are so dangerous that ordinary prisons just will not hold them. Others have secrets that cannot be allowed to be spread, or their crimes are so dreadful that they deserve a greater punishment then normal incarceration or even execution. In yet other cases the ruler had a nasty sense of humour...
Money=zombies. Who knew that the room with pictures of people getting killed would spawn undead things trying to kill you?
The door that cannot be reached, the wall that cannot be climbed
"John. This is your final power. Precognition. Don't you see? The ability to know what is going to happen. And, if you know what is going to happen, then you can stop it."

It sure looks like a normal doorknob...Wait a second...Did it just move?!

Forcing party members into a furnace is fun!
Darn, this hallway is really long…
Beware of food that isn’t yours for the taking.
Consider your grip and consider just how important the iron spikes and 10 foot pole are.
What’s this round thing on the wall…
A simple, effective dungeon trap that satisfies the requirements to be used several times and without decaying.
Many traps are not designed to kill or maim, but more to disgust or annoy, or even to put a smile on the victim’s face… this is a scroll of such traps.
The player characters, experienced and somewhat well known, hear rumors and travelers' tales about a distant area being overrun by dragons (or other terrifying monstrosities). The locals have sent them a message, begging for heroic aid.
When they investigate, they discover that nothing of the sort is going on. It turns out that a group of thieves wanted them out of the way so that they could rob them (or someone who would normally receive their protection).
