The Seige

The City Vaults

Symbol of Domination Level 15 Lurker

Trap XP 1,200

Trap: Written across the floor in a tiny cramped hand a spell is cast that has an insidious effect of dominating those that pass. The dominated will attempt to enter one of the niches that line the wall where they will be locked in.


  • DC 30: The character sees that there is a line of writing on the floor

Additional Skill: Arcana

  • DC 28: The character recognises the symbol of domination


When a living person that is not within five squares of a baton of authority crosses the line they fall silently under the influence of the symbol, walk to one of the niches and become locked within.


Standard Action Ranged Sight
Target: Random creature not within five squares of a baton
Attack: +19 vs Will
Hit: Target is dominated (save ends)


  • The script can be disabled with a DC 28 Thievery or DC 23 Arcana
  • The sealed niches can be disabled with a DC 26 Thievery from the outside or a DC 31 Thievery from within. Their steel doors cannot be destroyed without harming those trapped within.

The Teleporter (8900xp)

The Hanorians have been making use of a device that when activated can teleport a squadron of animae to it. This was used by an agent mistakenly believing that the mock Star Chamber was real, but was also placed into the hands of an expendable agent that was sacrificed knowing that he would be brought into the inner chambers of counter-intelligence. The purpose of the devices has been deliberately obscured and the only way to realisitically find out what they do is to activate them. Clues to their purpose might be harvested at the scene of the earlier battle however.
