I like this item - and an item that delivers small volumes of magic liquid effectively twice a week is not that overpowered, unless there are some extraordinary liquids available in your universe. If it said 'potion' instead of 'liquid' then this puts an implicit limitation on its power. A powerful item, yes, but not overwhelming.
Good posting, but I would like some details explained more.
What do you mean by "slam" attack? Is that a slap, or a ground pound or a body slam, or something else?
"serious penalty to anything effected by weight" - Does that mean the character can carry less equipment, or is more likely to snap part of an old bridge, or something else?
I also assume these gauntlets cannot be removed and are bonded to the wearer, otherwise, why would the character be considered a half golem? The inability to remove something might be considered by some to be a curse, but you might consider that to be a magical side effect.
Cool item. If I may comment on the Rolemaster question on slam.
Just treat them allowing a Huge Bash attack with an OB set to your desire. Given the downsides on the item, a +30 OB may be fine.
The weight penalty would be like carrying 40 lbs of weight (20 lbs per glove).
As this is inorganic matter, this will cause problems for some casters :)
The crumble attack could be a medium bash using thrown spear range. Go to Comment
I'm not going to be using these in a game, not because I don't like them (I do!) but because my players would hate me after I inflicted all the annoying collateral goofiness that they inspire... Go to Comment
"It is said that among those people they have a loathsome custom- that they keep a spotted dog always waiting beside the gate of the yard where they bury the dead, and that in every funeral they allow this spotted dog to feast upon the dead, so that it grows fat and wise with the knowledge of the dead... Many necromancers do seek out these spotted dogs, and ask of them sciomantic knowledge, or take them as familiars." -Author unknown, "The Ways of the Necromancers"
