Gloves of Immaculate Grooming


These magical gloves will make sure your fancy suit isn’t ruined by the odd stain or spill.

These appear to be an ordinary set of suprisingly clean white gloves.

Magical Properties:

When put on they allow the wearer to instantly remove any stain from their clothing just by running your hand over it.  Doing so leaves no mark on the gloves.  Running your fingers through your hair wit the gloves on will leave you with a “just come from the barber” look.  Popular amoung the upper classes and a must have at formal dinners.  After time the enchantment will wear off and the gloves will instantly bear the wear and tear they have endured over the years.

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

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?"

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. >:)

I can see some sort of medieval infomercial:

"And if you buy now, we'll throw in this pair of Gloves of Immaculate Grooming, at a 100 gold piece value, absolutely free!"

I do wonder what would happen with your hair......

Just ran my gloves thru my hair.

Ten minutes later, the magic disappears from the gloves and my hair jumps right back to the bathered look it had beacause of the long ride I had.....

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.

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
