Target: Creature on the iceEffect: The ice gives way. The creature that triggered the trap immediately attempts a saving throw. If it succeeds, that character is prone in any adjacent square not in the thin ice area. If the saving throw fails, the creature is dunked into tainted, necrotically-infused water below the ice, taking 20 poison damage and 20 necrotic damage. At the start of every turn in the water, the creature takes an additional 20 poison damage and 20 necrotic damage.Countermeasures Fire damage: If thin ice squares are within the area of any fire attack, the ice collapses, even if there was no weight upon it.
