The Flying Brick

The flying brick is a magical construct that is a favorite of wizards and dungeon builders alike, or anyone in need of a secret door that can defend itself.

When used as a secret door or entrance it can be set to open with a specific pass phrase. When the phrase is spoken withing 20 feet of the door, the bricks begin to shift and gather layering upon themselves to create an opening.

If they are not set to a particular task. They are known to roam the structures in which they dwell. Constantly changing the floorplans. Stopping a solidifying in place when they sense motion, and attacking if disturbed.
