Gauntlet
gauntlet_goth_fluted3__44382.jpg

Benefit: This metal glove lets you deal lethal damage rather than nonlethal damage with unarmed strikes. A strike with a gauntlet is otherwise considered an unarmed attack. Your opponent cannot use a disarm action to disarm you of gauntlets.

Note: The cost and weight given are for a single gauntlet. Medium and heavy armors (except breastplate) come with gauntlets.

Weapon Feature(s): Cannot be disarmed

Masterwork and Enchantment costs are only for one gauntlet, not a pair. You are able to individualize enchantments on each gauntlet (i.e. — Flaming on one gauntlet, planar on the other).
