Target: Small or Medium creature in trapped squareAttack: +19 vs. ReflexHit: 2d8 + 6 damage, and the target is immobilized (save ends). Each time the target fails the saving throw to end the immobilized condition, the chains deal 5 damage.Miss: Half damage, and the target is slowed until the end of its turn.Countermeasures Thievery DC 18: A character adjacent to the wall where the chains are set (or immobilized by a chain) can disable one of the four chains with a successful check.

If four creatures are immobilized, the trap is full and can’t make more attacks. Reduce this number by one for each chain disabled.
