Caltrops were effective items used by some rogues and adventurers to dissuade pursuit.[1]


Caltrops were tiny metal creations lined with spikes. When dropped on the ground during a pursuit, they did a wonderful job of slowing down and even injuring the pursuing party, allowing a thief extra time to make his or her escape.[1]


A bag containing 100 caltrops cost 2 gold.[1]
