The rats are by nature wary of traps: but there is a curious hunger in the eyes of some of them for rostygold. You bait the traps accordingly. Avarice overcomes prudence, and you have a pile of furry corpses to add to your collection.


Give that back!

Snap! A couple of rats fall before the others adapt. You hear tiny peals of laughter as they scurry off with the rostygold they took from your traps with little jemmies.
