Gloves of Torment

Aura faint necromancy; CL 3rd
Slot hands; Price 2,700 gp; Weight —.


These gloves are made of the finest silk, and numerous delicate metal razors, hooks, and pins stud the fingers. When worn by someone with at least 2 ranks in Heal, the magic of these gloves manifests in full. The metal hooks and razors and pins become fluid and mobile, and can be controlled as extensions of the wearer’s body with great finesse. These animated razors and hooks allow the user to perform operations upon flesh with great skill. This grants a +10 circumstance bonus to any Heal check made to torture the victim or to provide first aid to a dying victim (since the hooks can be used to bind wounds as well as create them).

Gloves of torment can be used to cast antagonize wound at will by simply touching a victim and willing the effect to occur. This allows the user to cause a single point of damage to the target by making a successful touch attack, or one additional point of lethal damage with a successful unarmed attack.


Craft Wondrous Item, antagonize wound, creator must have 2+ ranks in Heal; Cost 1,350 gp.
