Swinging Log

Source Ultimate Wilderness pg. 172
Associated Terrain any forests or jungles
Type mechanical; Perception DC 12; Disable Device DC 12

Effects

Trigger location; Reset manual
Effect A large, heavy log is suspended in the canopy of a forest or jungle and attached to a trip line. When a creature passes through a 5-foot-square that’s been trapped by this trip line, the log swings down and makes a melee attack with a +5 bonus (1d6+5 points of bludgeoning damage). A creature damaged by this log must succeed at a DC 15 Reflex save to avoid being knocked prone. Affixing a number of sharpened sticks to the log adds an additional 2d6 points of piercing damage and increases its CR by 1.
