Tuesday Magic Item – Stable Snowshoes

5 January, 2021

Dashing through the snow“Snow is better experienced from the comfort of a warm window,” said Gollaon trudging along the snow.

“As least we are properly equipped,” said Voddick, tapping one of his snowshoes with his staff.  “Wading through this without them would be even less pleasant.”

“True . . . and the payment for delivering the message is good.”

“Enough to buy several nights in a warm inn at the very least.”

Stable Snowshoes

These snowshoes are well made in the local style using the best of materials, the enchantments used in creating them keep them flexible and strong even if poorly stored or treated.  Occasionally they are decorated but this is rare as they are primarily a practical item.

While wearing these snowshoes, snow is treated as normal terrain and you gain a +2 equipment bonus to resist anything that would cause you to fall or slip while on ice or snow.
