The Fetid Breath Blower is a frightening trap, despite its relatively low level of challenge. This trap is designed around an ornamental object that hides a nozzle, capable of projecting a wide line of diseased mist, infecting all within its radius with Anthrakitis.

Most parties will quickly assume that they’ve been exposed to disease and will expend resources attempting to combat it. Worse, once inflicted with Anthrakitis, you will pass it to others you come in contact with, ensuring that the disease spreads quickly to the rest of the party if it is not treated.

Trap setters sometimes fill the traps merely with dank water, a ruse to force intruders to slow down and expend valuable resources as a precaution.
