Fiendish Gauntlets

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement)

These ancient clawed gauntlets were originally armor for a fiend. The bones and sinew that wrap around them sometimes whisper and laugh when you kill a creature while wearing them. While wearing them, you get a +1 bonus to AC. The gauntlets do not prevent you from using items or providing somatic components.

  • Claws. The gauntlets turn unarmed strikes with your hands into magic weapons that deal slashing damage, with a +1 bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls and a damage die of 1d8.
  • Curse. Once you attune to these gauntlets, they can’t be removed unless they are targeted by the remove curse spell or similar magic. While wearing this item, you have disadvantage on attack rolls against fiends and on saving throws against fiends’s effects.
