  • An adjacent character can disable the trap with a DC 19 Arcana or Thievery check.
  • An adjacent character can bypass the trap with a password or a DC 14 Arcana or Thievery check, allowing the object to be opened without triggering the trap.
  • Destroying the object disables the trap.
  • If trapped objects are spread out in a square to be stepped on, a creature can make a Dexterity check (DC 5 + number of trapped objects) to avoid triggering one of them. A wary character can spend a standard action to automatically avoid them for the round.
