I really ike this idea! That would be a lot of fun.
Yes, I am evil enough!
No, the idea is too horrible for me!
I have not found something similar, so I think it is a funny idea to "map a trap". Perhaps the older guys still know or own the "Grimtooth's Traps" books.
This can be a simple mechanism, like the standard wire, that will release a bunch of arrows out of the wall or a complicated method like taking the gold coin from the table releases a weight that slides down a tube,hitting a lever that releases a ball that...you know, such a crazy machine thing.
The location can be everywhere: in the woods, a dungeon corridor, a room etc.
The motto should be: The weird, the better!
I like! Already devious plans are forming in my head
Oh, and I fully expect whoever puts up the challenge to include an Admiral Ackbar spoof with it as well.

Grimtooth's rocks! I had some of those books and always wanted the rest. Would love to see what people come up with.
great idea.. I'm working on some traps for my current challenge - but they are simple in comparison to what could be thought out... MUHAHHAHAHHAA... and yes, I still have a couple of Grimtooth books in the book case somewhere - loved those books.
Remember an simple "one skull" trap ... you make a long mud pit that the players have to wade through... there is a pressure plate that activates when all players are in the mud ... then a small door opens in the wall - by the player bringing up the rear - releasing a small duck. So the last player says "DUCK"

I may have to pull out the bloodthirsty weasel from the Pixie trap again!
Yeah, gotta get some more of that.

I'd love to see what the dark twisted minds of T.C.G. could come up with. Let's see it done!
