Level 19 Blaster
A dark, deep pit in the floor appears to have clouds of silver radiance far within its seemingly bottomless depths.Trap: The trap becomes active when triggered.Perception DC 14: The character can see the pit from Location 14, though the full danger isn’t apparent.Nature DC 22: The character recognizes the danger of the extrusion before moving within 3 squares of it (which might not do much good if the character is being propelled by the kinetic arches trap).Dungeoneering DC 22: The character recognizes the danger of the extrusion before moving within 3 squares of it (which might not do much good if the character is being propelled by the kinetic arches trap).TriggerThis trap activates when a creature enters the pit. If the arches trap is disabled or bypassed, this trap does not activate, or ceases attacking.SpecialCreatures that are pushed or slid into the pit gain a saving throw to hang onto the edge. Creatures that fail the save fall into darkness. In truth, they are teleported into a silvery space of divine creation, not unlike the expanse of the Astral Sea. They remain in this divine space each round (save ends) and are subject to attack.AttackStandard Action
Target: Each creature in the divine spaceAttack: +22 vs. WillHit: 4d8 + 7 radiant damage.AftereffectA creature that emerges from the divine space appears in Location 14, in the entrance to the trapped corridor. The creature is dazed and takes ongoing 5 psychic damage (save ends) from the experience, and is subject to additional attacks by the kinetic arches (if they are still active).Countermeasures Acrobatics DC 33: A creature in the burst can minimize the damage of the extrusion with successful check made as an immediate interrupt before the attack. With a successful check, the creature takes half damage on a hit, and no damage on a miss.
Leaping beyond the pit into the far side of the corridor cuts off a character from the aff ects of the kinetic arches trap.
