Assuming that the part in the middle is not rubber of packaging foam, it will be too heavy to even note the weight of someone walking on top of it, unless you find a way to keep those (dont remember the word) REALLY well oiled forever. And if they are REALLY well greased, then the entire room would spin as soon as anyone took a single step in, before the rest of the body followed.

Still, it would be like suddenly running into a steep too high, so I guess it COULD trap one person, maybe.

It is not difficult to make it only trigger in one direction. Shove some grooves into it and some metal bars into them and it would only rotate once the party goes past the halfway mark.

The best answer to subverting a lot of large-scale traps is to fill the dungeon with water and bring waterbreathing equipment.

Actually that's the best answer to most dungeons, if you don't mind losing some of the material wealth that might get wrecked by water in there.

Reverse Gravity Trap:

This magical trap causes everything it affects to experience reversed gravity. So your character immediately falls up to the ceiling. In a dungeon, this means he can go some places that are normally impossible to get to, and cannot go to other places. Once he tries to leave the dungeon, then he has a serious problem, he will fall straight up into space. So he has to constantly wear armor or weights greater than his own, now negative, weight, or stay indoors.

In 4e Forgotten Realms, large parts of the Underdark collapsed. Most of the Sea of Fallen Stars drained into it, with no visible result. Also, if anything, it would go into either wherever Cyric has been chained up or into Lolth's realm, both of which have portals in the deep Underdark.

What about this? A dungeon filled with puzzles that must be completed to advance. Once a puzzle is complete, it has been turned into a trap designed to hinder the party if they were going backwards, not forwards through the dungeons. "Un-completing" the puzzles makes advancement through the area once again difficult, if not impossible.

Once the party gets to the end of the dungeon & beats the boss, the dungeon starts flooding with something deadly to the PCs, like magma or acid. Preferably a liquid harmless to the dungeon itself.

Ultimately, the PCs are forced to escape a dungeon filled with traps THEY set up.

Good idea or bad idea, & why?

We all know how /tg/ works.
If you request traps while making the thread seem like it's about the dungeon ones, it'll eventually delve into porn.
If you request traps while making the thread seem like it's about the crossdressing ones, /tg/ will respond by making it about the dungeon ones.

It would be an interesting campaign focus. If you look at say D&D's assassin classes they're still very combat oriented. Running a sneaky, non-combat campaign where rogues and assassins could really focus on the sneakier side of their classes would be quite novel and enjoyable, I think.

>> No.12373764

>>12373722
That's what I was thinking of. It'd probably have to be a political intrigue type of campaign, considering that's where assassins probably get used most. As for rogues? Well, it says right in the flavour text that a rogue can be anything from a mugger to a spy.

It's better with two of them stacked on each other at the bottom. Even if they grapple out of the first one, they've only managed to get into the second one. Especially if the pit covers are rigged to close over them and the rest of the party has to get them open before they can help.
