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
In truth, the original gloves upon which these were modeled where the Hands of Order, stolen ironically from a long dead god of Law. The touch of the glove would remove chaos from that touched, taking them from unorganized and primitive to ordered. The touch is especially baneful to beings of chaos and entrophy, but nothing is unscathed by prolonged contact.
