VIEEU Boots

By:

With a twitch of the leg and the push of a button; Houston’s boots emitted a massive amount of steam and he was sent headlong into the air.

Full Item Description
The Vapor Induction Emergency Evacuation Unit, also known as VIEEU Boots, resembles a pair of oversized leg braces. With six cylinders made to hold Steam Injectors; and two flexible tubes extending into one handle with a trigger and twistable knob, the VIEEU Boots are high-end fancy metallic footwear with both dangerous and beneficial features.
History
After Getherious Aetherwatt invented the Steam Injector there was a outbreak of inventions that used quick bursts of steam to great effect. The dread Gutbroiler was one, and these boots are another. Houston Goodfoot was lucky enough to test the first successful VIEEU Boots, created by Furthan Dazzle, and is widely known as The First Man to Fly on His Feet. Since the success quite a few other successful models have been made, but none as popular as the most recent six-cylinder VIEEU Boots D-Plus.
Properties
The six-cylinder D-Plus Model has a revolver action Steam Injector exchange system, so that use to six jumps may be made without replacing E.S.I.s and features a patented shock-absorber system to prevent broken legs upon impact. As well a a twistable knob to control the amount of steam released.
Older, more dangerous, models will prove to be cheaper but come at the cost of limited jumps and broken legs.

Useful but dangerous for the unwary.

I like it. Short, sweet, utilitarian. With a touch of Piehness.

First Man to Fly on His Feet is gold.

Rocket boots are a natural outgrowth of the idea of steam propulsion. I am mostly recalling, however, the early experimentation scenes from Iron Man, which is making me laugh, and getting you an extra half point.

What Siren said. The six-shooter action of the injectors is also fun.

Yes - these are handy too. A bit brief, but the idea is documented well. The image alone is sweet.

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
