Breakaway Vine

Source Ultimate Wilderness pg. 172
Associated Terrain any forests, jungles, or swamps
Type mechanical; Perception DC 20; Disable Device DC 20

Effects

Trigger touch (timed); Reset repair
Effect A breakaway vine has been sabotaged so that it snaps not long after someone begins using it to climb. A breakaway vine trap can be crafted from a length of rope as well, but this ruins the rope for other uses. When a Small or larger creature climbs a breakaway vine, the vine snaps just before the creature reaches the top of the climb. A creature can grab a handhold and avoid the resulting fall with a successful DC 20 Reflex save. This breakaway vine assumes a 20-foot fall for 2d6 points of damage; longer falls increase the CR of the breakaway vine by 1 per additional 20 feet.
