Trap
Level 23 Warder
XP 5100

Silver-blue lines of glowing energy form a floor-to-ceiling box in the center of this ovoid-shaped chamber.

Trap: The stasis vault is meant to keep its contents in and trespassers out, but its semivisible shell allows would-be looters to see within.Perception     DC 29: The character spots the astral diamonds that serve as the anchors for the stasis vault, and can target those anchors.Arcana     DC 16: The character senses the magic of the stasis vault’s walls. The check isn’t possible from more than 5 squares away.     DC 24: After detecting the stasis vault or seeing it in action, the character identifi es it, and understands how it attacks and that it has anchors that must be disabled to breach it.     DC 29: (trained only): The character can see the stasis vault walls and understands its weaknesses. Such a character knows where the anchors are and gains +2 on any countermeasure check.Trigger AWhen a creature tries to enter a stasis vault square without using a countermeasure, or ends its turn adjacent to but not inside the vault’s perimeter, the vault uses attack A. When a creature ties to teleport into the vault, it is shunted to the nearest square outside the vault, and the teleporting creature is attacked in that square.Attack AOpportunity Action      Melee 1

For every 5 points by which the check result exceeds the DC, the character can move another square.
