Fluid Modulation Gloves

Wondrous item, very rare (requires attunement)

These brown leather gloves look partially made of water, with aquatic patterns flowing through the back side of the gloves. Fluid modulation gloves permit you to tamper with the physical properties of liquids while protecting her from their harmful effects.

By plunging both hands in a body of liquid as an action, you can manipulate that liquid in a 20-foot radius. Each round you keep your hands submerged, the radius expands an additional 5 feet, up to 40 feet.

While the gloves are immersed, you can moderate the liquid’s temperature, suppressing environmental heat or cold dangers deriving from that liquid. You may also alter the phase of the liquid in the affected area, freezing it to the point of solidification or boiling it to the point of vaporization. Creatures other than you standing in the affected area when it becomes frozen cannot move; they gain the grappled condition (Escape DC 14) unless they make a successful DC 16 Dexterity saving throw, and take 1d6 points of cold damage each round they begin their turn within the area. Likewise, creatures in the affected area when it becomes boiling gain one level of exhaustion unless they make a successful DC 16 Constitution saving throw and take 1d6 points of fire damage each round they remain in the area. After you pull out your hands as a bonus action, the affected area returns to its original state 1 round later.

Finally, you can create a protective field around your body as an action, which takes the form of a thin plasmatic layer spawning from the gloves. This protective field can be used for up to 10 rounds each day (these rounds need not be consecutive) and grants you resistance against fire or cold (your choice). You an use this ability to grant this benefit to a creature you touch rather than to yourself, but the layer begins to evaporate if you stop touching that creature with the glove, ending at the beginning of that creature’s next turn.
