Tar Snare

Source Ultimate Wilderness pg. 172
Associated Terrain any with tar pits or mud
Type mechanical; Perception DC 20; Disable Device DC 20

Effects

Trigger location; Reset automatic
Effect A tar snare consists of a shallow trench filled with tar or sticky mud that is then covered with a layer of debris to disguise its presence. When a creature steps into a square trapped with a tar snare, the trap makes an attempt to grapple it with a +10 bonus on the combat maneuver check. Sharp sticks can be added to the pit as well—this increases the CR of the trap by 1 and affects a creature grappled by the trap as if it had walked on caltrops.
