Don't mind me, I'm just being the coolest trap seen in the '00s.

We had a laser hallway in Paranoia, come to think of it, only it fired an array of coloured (thus powered) lasers from little holes in the wall when it detected motion. Our party's ill-advised efforts to get past it involved getting it to detonate power packs and blowing huge craters in the corridor, until eventually the DM (still new to it, so don't RAGE, /tg/) revealed that he was railroading a bit for us to use our EMP-bomb-style R&D tech.

It was particular fun in the meantime, though, being the science guy, given that there was a switch panel next to it. While I eventually figured out that it was unrelated, I eventually toggled it until the random pattern went all-red, then told the team to leg it down the corridor before it reset (their red armour providing adaquate protection against such a threat).

Sadly, the savvy bastards threw something else first and saw an orange beam. "Oops."

I reserve "bad" for the kind of trash which contains Shia LeBouf.

The first Resident Evil was a perfectly average action flick with some iffy pacing and the odd neat setpiece. The sequels are pure wanking off to Mrs Lead Character, though.

>> No.9024458

>>9024321
The First Resident Evil was a good movie. The rest were GAY as shit.

You see, let's ake a quick look at the main character, Alice.

In the first movie, she's completely human. She also cares about people. She tried her fucking hardest to save Rain and wouldn't kill her, even though the Red Queen told her to.

In the second movie, Alice is a super powered Goddess of Death. She also tries to kill the black S.T.A.R.S. who's infected as soon as she meets him. A VAST departure from her previous movie behavior. Alice was less of a Resident Evil character then a "My Special Unique Snowflake is better then the established characters of the series."

The third is just gay layered upon shit layered upon ruined potential for Alice Clone Orgy.

In all the games, the heroes are humans, and only the monsters have super powers.

The only way the Resident Evil movies can redeem themselves is if the established characters of the series team up to kill Alice, as she's a monster.

I had a trap that operated like the laser hallway from that movie in a 4e game, just with force damage rather then a laser cutting you up. Was already disabled when the party got there, and the paladin was stupid enough to set it off after calling in the rouge to deal with it. Rouge got out fine, paladin nearly died, and the entire rest of the party was fucked up by it.

Sometimes the best traps are the simplest. Take a skeleton, lodge a sword between its front left ribs and its back right ribs, sit it up against a wall, as though it had flopped back and died there, and balance an impact explosive on the edge of the blade within the ribcage.

Adventurer sees shiny thing. Adventurer takes shiny thing. Explosive thing on top of shiny thing falls down and goes off when it hits the floor. No save damage for the one that takes it out. Radius hits the rest.
