DESCRIPTION

Tripping this trap is harmless unto itself. However, it makes a loud buzzing sound that can be heard for a considerable distance away alerting guards that someone is breaking into the vault. This trap is commonly used in areas where people regularly move through all the time. This allows someone to accidentally trigger the trap without dying shortly thereafter. Uttering the verbal component to a ghost sound spell disables the trap for 1 minute.

EFFECT

Spell effect (ghost sound)
