Slippery When Wet

Sometimes the most effective and deadliest hazards are the mundane, commonplace dangers we ignore even in our day-to-day lives: the balcony without a proper safety rail, the uneven staircase, the old ladder, and the slippery floor. Because it is so familiar and commonplace, the danger to a character seems less real, but the penalty for failure just feels all the more grounded and familiar. You feel stupid for leaving yourself vulnerable and hate the dice for rolling low, but it’s not a irritating or unexpected as a random magical trap.
