Notes:

Variants

A variant covered in blue whinnis oil is easier to disarm (-1) and can be circumvented by a Per-based Lockpicking roll at -7 that finds the hidden switch, while a DX-based Lockpicking roll at -7 disables it. Failure triggers. It's harder to to hear or avoid (-3 to both Hearing and Dodge), and the poison does 1 small piercing to Hand plus poison; resist vs. HT or lose 1 HT; one minute afterwards, resist vs. HT or fall unconscious for 1 hour per point by which the resistance roll failed.
