Obsidian Mansion -- just a question (spoilers)

On my first trip to the Obsidian Mansion, I made reasonable progress. Apparently, I also hit a booby trap because a bunch of stuff dropped on me, killing me instantly. I'm not eager for that to repeat. Can anyone make some recommendations on how to avoid having this happen?

Well, since you're aware of it now, the best thing to do is to get close enough to that area again, slowly, until you notice things falling from above. Just run away from it till it clears out and then proceed as usual. I don't remember if the wooly doll on the ground was also the same room with the trap, but if it is, again, approach slowly, dodge it by running back, then run forward after waiting for it to clear.

I don't remember there being another in the mansion, so you should be good after that. I had also fallen for the same thing on my first trip there >_<

You're right. It was right after the wooly doll...nice to have the doll there for a heads up.

That's probably the biggest dick move the game pulls on you (at least for me so far). When I got there on hard, that thing had pretty much no warning and was an instant kill.

'R' button is your friend. If you're fast enough you can dodge most of the damage.

I guess I was lucky the first time I went through there. I had enough HP to survive, if but barely XD I was expecting something too, since the doll had freaked out when I entered.
