This trap is relatively simple in its elegance, and the real danger is not even this trap, but rather the traps that it is partnered with.

Once an intruder activates the pressure plate, another plate rises on hidden hinges some ten feet ahead, releasing the symbol of fear and also triggering the knock spell. This causes the intruders to likely be panicked into running away from the symbol, directly over a pair of newly unlocked traps. The GM is encouraged to be creative with what traps are used, but pit traps are common.

Raxath frequently uses traps that hold his enemies in place, causing great hysteria as they are both locked in place and affected by the symbol of fear.
