Slippers of Star-Striding

Wondrous item, very rare (requires attunement)

This soft-soled calf-high boots of black velvet are embedded with tiny glowing and swirling stars and galaxies, shedding light as a candle unless you suppress their radiance as a bonus action. As long as the slippers are alight, you can cause any one 5-foot square of a surface you travel across during your turn to glow as a light spell for 1d4 rounds. You can also create dancing lights at will as an action, and when you score a critical hit, you can force the creature you attacked to make a Wisdom saving throw with a DC of 8 + your Charisma modifier + your proficiency bonus as a reaction. If the creature fails their saving throw, they are stunned. The creature can attempt a new saving throw at the end of each of its turns in order to end the stunned effect. Once you have used this ability, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Epic Attunement. As a bonus action, you can teleport from a square that you caused to glow as a light spell to any other square within your line of sight containing another magical light effect, such as dancing lights, and the magical light effect need not have been created by you. Additionally, if you are ever in an environment in which you cannot breathe, such as outer space or the bottom of the ocean, you can use a reaction to breathe normally for 12 hours. If in outer space, you can move towards the nearest planet, requiring 1d12 hours to reach it.

Once you reach the planet’s orbit, you can teleport to the surface.
