Daedalus Wings

Wondrous item, very rare

Daedalus, a master artisan of Athens, had finished the monumental project of constructing the Labyrinth of Crete. King Minos imprisoned him and his son Icarus within the labyrinth and even Daedalus, its creator, could not find his way out. He constructed for himself and his son pairs of magical wings made of wax and feathers that would allow them to fly out of Crete. He warned his son not to fly too low or too high, lest the seas clog the feathers or the sun melt the wax. Icarus, overjoyed with the freedom of flight, soared too high and the sun melted the wings. Flapping his arms helplessly, Icarus tumbled into the sea and drowned.

While wearing these wings, you gain a flying speed equal to your walking speed. If you remain flying below 100 feet for one minute, the wings become heavy and drag you to the ground harmlessly. If you fly above 200 feet for one minute, the wings melt and are destroyed permanently. You take double the regular falling damage when you hit the ground.
