Nice one! I can see why a weak, nerdy wizard might want to invent one of these... :) I love the idea of the effect it might have on the city guard. Imagine trying to get through customs unchecked wearing this!
I really like these seemingly mundane magic items.
A favorite of assassins as well. What better to remove any blood spatter from a kill on your clothing and put yourself back into a perfectly presentable state. Also remove the telltale blood area on the victim if you wish to try and hide the act for those few extra precious seconds. Not to mention remove and muddy/bloody footprints. Do they clean metal? hmmm Go to Comment
Does the enchantment wear off gradually or suddenly? Could be very embarassing if the owner didnt pay attention to his warranty. "Good grief. What have you done to these gloves? Paint, what appears to be gravy... is that lipstick?" Go to Comment
Don't forget getting rid of those incriminating notes and plans. Just wipe the paper and Presto! Could rather inconvienient, and maybe illegal to own them, in countries useing paper money.
Why stop at gloves? Larger versions could prove just as useful as the gloves. Like a travelling cloak, always appear at your destination looking fresh, or a saddle blanket, never worry about grooming your horse, not to mention the multiple versions that could find use in a house of ill repute. >:) Go to Comment
The characters are wandering through the bustling crowds of Lasopolis. A street conjuror is performing a simple summoning spell, something for the kiddies. A bit of odious purple powder in the fire, an incantation and out pops a saak-lizard or a muhmentarsh, writhing from the flaming brazier. But the conjuror has only a poor grasp of the arcane magical tongue. A few stuttered syllables could lead to Other Things coming through the brazier and giving the crowd more entertainment than they had paid for...
