Name: Magic mirror.

Stats: ????


Uses: ten.
Blood cost: high.
Target: Area of effect, all hostile creatures in front of the mirror.
Friendly Fire: No.
Cooldown: Medium.
Recovery: Yes, slowly.

Information: The magic mirror can only be placed against a wall, and a ghostly figure dwells within.

Function: When someone with a reflection passes the mirror, a ghostly figure leans out of the mirror and slashes at the bypassers with a ghostly sword, doing a mixture of cold and dark damage. This happens very fast.
Creatures such as a vampire who have no reflection, ghostly figures and creatures in stealth cant trigger it either.

Appearance: Looks like a long mirror with a menacing frame.

I'd suggest a unit's mirror replica that keeps attacking him until killed, X seconds or mirror is destroyed. Being nearly a melee range trap a single slash is not enough for it to be effective.

A replica wouldnt work with all creatures and would be murder for the design team.

A single slash is just as effective as the damage it does. its up to the team to adjust the damage for balance.

And imagine a corridor with mirrors hanging on both sides.

Replica doesn't have to be an exact copy of the unit. It can be a blurry silhouette that does the job. A single slash makes it rather poor due to low range. A cannon trap will be more efficient than this.

No less efficient than a lightning trap or such. Also activated when standing next to it. Instead of shooting more bolts, it gives one powerfull slash.

Seems to me it adds to the element of horror that its just a single slash and not a battle. would be silly to outright fight against a mirror.

Lightning trap was relatively weak. It's strength was in it's numbers where it could burst down a single creature but it would do so at the cost of huge mana cost. Also lightning trap had a decent range. If this trap will have some it can work as suggested, otherwise, it will be similar to spike trap wich was kinda useless, despite 0 mana cost.
