Inheritor's Gauntlet

Source Inner Sea Gods pg. 265, Gods and Magic pg. 58
Aura faint evocation; CL 5th
Slot hands; Price 2,700 gp; Weight 1 lb.


This metal gauntlet is the sort appropriate for wearing with chainmail, though versions suited for leather or full plate exist. Affixed to the wrist is a white cloth with a longsword embroidered in gold thread. Once per day, the wearer can speak a command word to give a weapon the wearer holds in that hand (or the gauntlet itself) a +1 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls for 1 minute. An Inheritor’s gauntlet uses up the wearer’s entire hands slot; the wearer can not use another item (even another Inheritor’s gauntlet) that also uses the hands slot, though a matching nonmagical gauntlet is often worn on the other hand.

If Iomedae is the wearer’s patron, the gauntlet lets the wearer use any sword he holds in that hand as a holy symbol. Once per day, the wearer can speak a command word and give any sword he holds the powers of an evil outsider-bane weapon for 1 minute; this effect ends if the wearer drops the sword or removes the gauntlet. If the wearer uses a finger to draw Iomedae’s symbol on any solid surface, the symbol glows as brightly as a candle for 1 hour or until the wearer draws the symbol elsewhere (whichever comes first).


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, light, magic weapon, summon monster I; Cost 1,350 gp
