Some say you can’t keep a good undead down.  They’ve obviously not come face to foot with these boots.

Full Item Description
Gravestompers are a pair of calf-high boots made from a glossy black leather.  On the outwards facing side of each boot is a series of clips which one adjust the leather straps through in order to tighten or loosen the boot, but each clip also holds a silver bullet which can be removed by firmly tugging on the "bottom" of the bullet, which is facing upwards.

At the top and in the centre of the boot is a silver mechanical clip (like a seatbelt) that has a cross or other holy symbol engraved on it.

On the toe and heal of the boots is a silver plate that has a similar symbol on them.  Though the metal plate does not cover the whole sole of the boot, there is enough of the plate on either end of the boot that clinking can be heard when someone walks in these boots.

(by on the heal of the boot, I mean that it is on the back of the boot as well as the bottom of the boot where the heal is)

Orignally, these boots were made by someone who wanted to make a quick profit by selling these boots to warrior priest , paladins and the like but they become so popular that before too long religious organizations were making them themselves.

Magic/Cursed Properties
No real magical properties, however one could easily adjust the boots to effect the undead or enchant them to give them bonus damage op top of what is given by kicking or stomping with these boots.

An interesting idea, though these boots tickle the back of my brain like I should know they are from somewhere else (Castlevania perhaps? or Trinity Blood?). The initial use as a quick sell to religious types giving over to the religious types making them themselves is a nice touch. All in all, short but good work.

Gravestompers... sounds like a cool brand name. :)

I can hear the players ask "So who can bless my boots?"

Funny and good.

I think it might have been Kane the puritan who wore something similar. Need to dig out my old Conan's to check..

To me, a standard 3.0 piece although I agree the name is very fitting and has an enhancing effect on the piece.

Cool idea; this is what you get your priest who goes for that certain look. I could see a variety of these with different enchantments.

The Forest of Flesh

       By: Kid Cannibal

The party has found the source of the strange creatures roaming the countryside. The rift in this reality glows with a silver hue, rippling with the wind but never moving. They step through and are immediately assaulted with the scent of rotting meat, some have to muster all their strength not to vomit. Strange cries similar to the beasts the party had faced before can be heard in the distance. Looking around, they see they are in a forest of grey and red rather than the normal brown and green. The trees are sticky to the touch and writhe, perhaps to get away or perhaps as a warning.

The deeper the party goes, the more the forest seems to slither and move underfoot. The cries get closer and more numerous. Creatures lurk in the shadows, all the same color of their surroundings. Whatever the party came in here for, they had better do it fast.

The forest of flesh is waking up, and it is so very hungry.
