Tuesday Magic Item – Galloan’s Shoes of Comfortable Travel

6 January, 2015

These boots were . . .“How is it that your feet are not sore after hiking into these miserable, rock infested hills?” groused Voddik.

“You spend your money on better weapons, I invest in sensible clothing,” replied Galloan.  Voddik stared at Galloan in his tricolored cloak, plumed hat,d finely embroidered clothing and new boots, seemingly unworn even after days of travel.

“Your boots are holding up well, I’ll grant you that,” said Voddik.

“Do you like them?  I had them custom made for me.”

Galloan’s Shoes of Comfortable Travel

First created for the noted venturer and dandy, Galloan of Marzye, the design has since spread out for they have a wide potential market.  The shoes are always fashionable, or at least they were when they were made, and are virtually indestructible.

These shoes are, as noted, virtually indestructible and self-cleaning, shedding any stain within an hour.  They keep the wearer’s feet safe and dry and exceedingly comfortable.  And they have an excellent grip on almost all surfaces.  The wearer gains a +2 equipment bonus to any saves to resist effects that target the feet and lower legs, and a +4 equipment bonus to rolls to allow long distance walking or to keep one’s feet on difficult or slippery footing.

  1. A good pair of boots is really important.

  2. I want those. Also I would read more of the adventures of Galloan and Voddik. They have a Vancian feel to them.
