Full Item Description
Fumbler’s Cuffs are a pair of well-made iron manacles connected by a short solid chain. They seem to be rather ordinary, but the guards smile as if there was something more to them…
Fandune "Fumbler" Gorgonhaeger was a bumbling young wizard’s apprentice. His duties included tending to the prisoners of the wizard’s tower. They were various would-be looters and other dangerous people. One day he was attacked by an inmate. While the inmate was attempting to strangle him, Fumbler managed to curse the inmate’s manacles with a minor Rubberfingers curse. Luckily, Fumbler escaped with his life and a grand idea…
He would curse tons of iron manacles and sell them to prisons and bounty hunters all over the world!
The manacles cause just the wearers fingers to become rubbery and practically useless. If one tries to pick the lock with the rubbered fingers they will most likely fail without large amounts of skill and some luck.
For some odd reason, or perhaps by purpose of Fumbler, the curse is negated and the manacles are even easy to remove while your hands are completely submerged in salt water.
