“First we noticed the cadaver of a deer. It had died in a trap. Then we saw the silhouette of a lodge through the trees. It was basically a ruin. Before we cloud get any closer though, we came across a sign covered in incoherent ramblings about ‘freedum’, ‘not paying tackses’ and dire warnings to ‘stai awai’.

The ruin laid dead silent. Then we stumbled right into the next trap…”

I thought about an optional encounter for my group of adventurers and came up with the trap riddled hut of some hermit (and tax evader) in the wilderness. The hermit is already dead though. Giant spiders saw no problem climbing over his traps and into his hut to feast on him. If the heroes dare to explore the place and survive traps and spiders, they may find some (untaxed) loot. There are invisible GM markers with some trap stats you can use or ignore. There is also an actual pit hidden under the ferns in the gap in the spiked fence.
