I must be doing something wrong then because I can only get it to either unlock or lock. I put the key on a key ring and set the box on the floor. When I have another character try to open it the message says it appears to be locked. What am I doing wrong?Can't be made any other way far as I know.
Course I've been wrong before ...
correct me if I am wrong but don't you need to lock the box to arm it?Why would you want to lock it?
Just put the box in your backpack and open it ...
There may be something about the orientation of the box ... try putting it down and picking it up so that it swaps orientation & try again.
Going to try again to make one and use the magic unlock spell. That is the one part I totally missed on this. Thank you! Will let you know if I succeed.gm carpenter for chest.
30-35 skill tinker to make dart trap (takes more than one attempt).
lock the chest and throw away the key
use unlock spell to unlock it (or possibly lockpicking)
every time it opens dart goes off
(only when turned east-west; turned other way trap does not go off)
* update* I had the gm carpenter make another box, which I gave to the low tinker to trap, when I got the box trapped I locked it and put the key in the trash barrel and waited until it was emptied. Then I had the gm carpenter cast unlock on it and once again I got the message that the spell did not seem to work. I even tried it with another character and got the same message. I have cast with the box in my pack and on the floor.Here we go again. I made a new character and bought tinker to 35. I used my GM carpenter to make the orange box. Gave the box back to the 35 tinker to dart trap it. Then I took it back, used the key to lock it and cast magic unlock on the box. I got a message that my spell does not seem to have an effect on the lock. What am I doing wrong?
