Iron Gauntlets of the Raging Flame

Slot hands; Aura strong abjuration and evocation; CL 20th; Weight 2 lbs. 


Forged long ago by a fire giant shaman, this pair of huge metal gloves appear like mundane iron gauntlets to the casual viewer. However, the truly astute realize otherwise. The Iron Gauntlets of the Raging Flame are masterly forged from blackened cold iron, trimmed in bronze, with a single flame engraved on the back of the palms. A set of three-inch blades are mounted to the hand plates of the gauntlets, allowing them to function as +4 flaming cold iron bladed gauntlets. While the Iron Gauntlets of the Raging Flame appear far too large for any but those of giantkind to wear, their enchantment allows them to shrink to fit the size of the wearer. 


Aura of Endure Elements (Sp)

The wearer of the Iron Gauntlets of the Raging Flame radiates an aura of endure elements (as the spell). All allies within 10 feet of the wearer (including the wearer) gain the benefits of the endure elements spell while within the area.

Burst of Fire (Sp) 

Once per day on command, the wearer of the Iron Gauntlets of the Raging Flame can emit a 20-foot-radius burst of fire. Creatures other than the wearer within the area take 4d6 points of fire damage (Reflex DC 20 half).

Fire Immunity 

The Iron Gauntlets of the Raging Flame grant the wearer complete immunity to all forms of magical and nonmagical fire. 

Giant Strength 

When worn, the Iron Gauntlets of the Raging Flame function as a +4 belt of giant strength

The Gauntlets of the Raging Flame have vanished and resurfaced throughout the ages on numerous occasions, the most recent was during the Off-Worlder War nearly 250 years ago. Of its own volition, the gauntlets came into the possession of the heroes of the war, Kirri Lightbringer, Farak Thunderstrike Clarn Azuremoon, Baras Vi'Ettsun, Varasis Glding III, Shadeem Arndall, and Felnik Kelwane, who used the gauntlets' power to help destroy the source of the Black Lord Vulkhan's vast power, and thus, end the war. Lost once again, the world awaits the artifact's return to aid those in need of its power.
