Great Idea[edit]

It is so simple, but it has so much potential. All I want to know is what the saves are and how easy is it to find and disable. This trap reminds me of the time someone got a chicken glued to their face. It was such a waste of sovereign glue, but it was so funny.--Hatman 21:25, 25 February 2008 (MST)

Huh. I must have forgotten to change the author template on this one. This idea was created by someone else, an IP, but it was all the mundane traps on one page. I just split them up. Oh, and I might have added a couple sentences at the end. With that said, I'll try to answer your questions. It would really all depend on where the bucket was. If it's just on the edge of a table, it's going to be pretty obvious it's there. If it's on top of a slightly opened door, that would depend on how tall. If it was a standard door (I don't know exactly how high doors are), the find DC would be something like 10, Maybe a 5 (probably not, though). To disable it, however, isn't quite so simple. Since a bucket isn't a mechanical device by the examples given in the PHB, like a lock or a wagon wheel. If a character can reach the bucket in the first place, it'll be hard enough making sure it doesn't tip or fall. Anywhere from a 15 to a 25 DC Dex check, it's up to you. If the PC can't reach the bucket, it makes it much harder. You'll have to use a pole or something. You might be able to knock it down without getting hit, but to bring it down without spilling, that'll be close to impossible. I probably messed up somewhere along the line, but it's so versatile it's hard to gauge, because it'll differ from situation to situation. --Ramses IV 05:21, 26 February 2008 (MST)
Thanks, that is exactly what I needed to know.--Hatman 11:27, 26 February 2008 (MST)


Imagine if a prankster put oil in this trap and an adventurer walked in with a torch at night and set off the trap, lol the prankster becomes a murderer --Xdeletedx 11:58, 1 March 2008 (MST)

Ha! Yeah, That would really suck. I mean, damn!--Ramses IV 09:56, 5 June 2008 (MDT)
