The Bloody Tempest
Aya's Black Caress
Artifact of the Five
Each member of the Circle of Five created an artifact with the intent of having eyes, ears, and influence in the lives of those they deemed worthy.
These gauntlets add a +10 shield bonus to AC, and function as a +7 melee weapon. There are many special properties, which will act when the entity sees fit to activate them. These gauntlets have a powerful, epic ego, which encourages their use, regardless of the consequences, and may occasionally result in possession by the cosmic entity that created them.
