Illusory Trap

3rd-level illusion

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (a needle and a mirror)
Duration: 24 hours

You create the illusion of a trap upon an object you touch, such as a door, a chest, or a 5-foot-square area of floor. A creature specifically looking for traps that examines the object must make a Wisdom saving throw. On a successful save, the creature takes 1d10 psychic damage, the spell ends, and the creature realizes that the trap was not real.

On a failed save, the creature believes the object contains a trap. If the creature then tries to disarm or otherwise interact with the trap in order to set it off, it must make a Dexterity check against your spell save DC. On a successful check, the creature takes 1d10 psychic damage and realizes the trap is not real. On a failed check, the creature takes 5d10 psychic damage and is stunned for 1 round, believing that it accidentally set off the trap and was injured by it.
