A discerning extension allows you to modify the next trap you place in the same square to be more discerning in its triggering conditions.

You first place the discerning extension as a saboteur trap in a square adjacent to you, just as you would any other saboteur trap. At any point within the next minute, you must place a second trap in that same square (either a saboteur trap or a mundane trap). This effect supersedes the normal rule that two saboteur traps cannot be placed in the same space. The discerning extension merges with the second trap, enhancing its function. A trap enhanced by a discerning extension only triggers against specific creatures or allows certain creatures to pass without triggering. You choose one option from the list below:

The discerning extension lasts until the trap is triggered, disarmed, or breaks apart (if the trap does so, as a saboteur trap does). Only one ‘extension’ spell can be added to a particular trap.
