D20:Fire Trap Spell

Fire Trap
Drd 2, Sor/Wiz 4
V, S, M
10 minutes
Object touched
Permanent until discharged (D)
Reflex half; see text
Fire trap creates a fiery explosion when an intruder opens the item that the trap protects. A fire trap can ward any object that can be opened and closed.
When casting fire trap, you select a point on the object as the spell?s center. When someone other than you opens the object, a fiery explosion fills the area within a 5-foot radius around the spell?s center. The flames deal 1d4 points of fire damage +1 point per caster level (maximum +20). The item protected by the trap is not harmed by this explosion.
A fire trapped item cannot have a second closure or warding spell placed on it.
A knock spell does not bypass a fire trap. An unsuccessful dispel magic spell does not detonate the spell.
Underwater, this ward deals half damage and creates a large cloud of steam.
You can use the fire trapped object without discharging it, as can any individual to whom the object was specifically attuned when cast. Attuning a fire trapped object to an individual usually involves setting a password that you can share with friends.
Note: Magic traps such as fire trap are hard to detect and disable. A rogue (only) can use the Search skill to find a fire trap and Disable Device to thwart it. The DC in each case is 25 + spell level (DC 27 for a druid?s fire trap or DC 29 for the arcane version).
Material Component: A half-pound of gold dust (cost 25 gp) sprinkled on the warded object.
