Exploration of the forest-ruins. HOW IT WORKS:

Step 1: Locate the Entrance to the Ruins (Investigation, DC 17)
Step 2: Roll on the Forest Ruins Passage Table.
Step 3: Roll a Perception check, DC 15 for EACHcharacter entering the passage to avoid the trap. If the Perception check is failed, roll on the Trap Table and roll the appropriate Save. If the check is passed, the character proceeds safely. NOTE, traps are individual for each character, they are not area effects.
Step 4: Do this for 2 (TWO) passages. 
Step 5: At the end of the second passage, if over level 6, roll Advanced Trap. 
Step 6: Roll Encounter Table
Step 7: Roll Investigation check, DC 15 to find treasure. Roll Treasure table. Do this once for every 2 passages. 
Step 8: Roll for traps on the way out but not for encounters, and remember to carry your loot (encumbrance)

Disarming Traps is possible (REQUIRES THIEVES TOOLS). By PASSING the DC 15 Perception check you may choose to attempt to Disarm the trap at the same DC. You may then roll another Perception check for each other character in the Passage, DC 15. Upon any successes you may attempt to Disarm at the same DC. Failure triggers the trap on the character attempting to Disarm it. On success, the trap is Disarmed for the character the roll was intended for.
