I have a character that doesn't have disable device skill, but I took trapmaking for a craft skill can I apply that to disabling just traps or no?


1 Answer 1


No, that character would still need to use the disable device skill.

If you read the Trapmaking guide, you will even find the section about how a trapmaking could include a bypass into the trap. This bypasses all do need a check different to Craft(trapmaking).

Anyway, some GM may rule that a character with craft in trapmaking would gain a small (+2) synergy bonus for checks to overcome a trap.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I would probably allow a Trapmaker to disable a trap that he specifically made, however, I also agree that he would need Disable Device regarding other traps. \$\endgroup\$
