Its a set of stone steps leading down to water, a short walk to a ladder which goes up to a treasure chest. The treasure chest triggers a water trap. There are two water weirds down in the water, guarding the real treasure. No popups or other adverts on my sites.
people often forget that medieval doesn't mean there is only dungeons and castles...
i like the 5e DMG for its descriptions of what a dungeon may be for. it includes things like... - a vault, dungeon designed to keep treasures secured. Treasures can be anything from an artifact to a huge pile of coin. - a Maze, made to keep people guessing and lost in order to protect something important. - a Deathtrap, a place made to trap people and kill them.
and like 5 or 6 more utilisation of dungeons and to be honest all of these can be mixed together. so imagine a lord in his castle who has a vault down below. his vault protects something very important and it just needs to be trapped. so really its easy to warrant such a trap in the first place. people tend to trap stuff they want to not fall on the wrong hands.
druid:"Do you need healing ?"
knight:"i still have half of my health, so im fine."
DM:"the boss, crits, max damage which does 20 damage !"
My Dwarf Home, my version of Moria and needs more maps updated to, has lots of traps, maze passageways, 'gelatinous cube dispensers', some remnant Dwarves who think the surface world was destroyed game centuries ago, etc. Levels 1 through 3 are completely mapped, level 4 through 6 are partially mapped. Level 11, lowest so far, will be designed to fly and turn a dragon around down there.
Thanks. By the time my players got to this dungeon, I had to force myself not to smile or frown, my 'tell' so to speak.
Dwarf Home has more nice traps on third level. A stairs on map dh3e07. Two ballistas cover the stairs and are aimed at a monster burn oil trap at the top of the passageway leading to the next level down. dh3d7 has a roulette wheel. Some goodies and some detriments. And on dh3c7 is a Grease spell... causes character to slide towards a wall of paper magicked to look like stone. Two drop offs. One short distance; 20 feet, slip off that one, 100 foot drop.

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

erho: Yeah I'm down for a painting contect

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!

sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
Sept 23, 2020 2:51:57 GMT
sgtslag: Hoping to acquire a Chop Saw within the next two weeks. Then I will cut up MDF into triangles, to form the skeleton of my d20 fantasy world globe... Posting will follow, with how-to guide. Cheers!

erho: I have a confession: I havnt painted a thing in months because I got a new guitar(#8!) but now that May "Megadeth month" is over I have a repaired airbrush and a early 90's Ral Partha Amethyst dragon on the table... pics to come soon!

margaret: too bad you can't post your music here =). Hadn't seen that dragon - looks like it came out when all my cash was going to raising kids. Looking forward to seeing your paint choices!
