Tuesday Magic Item – Sand Snake Sandals

26 January, 2021

Like this but with more snakeskin“I know I have complained about cold, but heat is worse,” said Voddick stopping for another drink from his canteen.

“Well, you should be wearing proper shoes like these,” said Gollaon displaying ankle and sandal.

“I do not care for sandals,” replied Voddick.

“Your loss.”

Sand Snake Sandals

These sandals are made of heavy leather with snakeskin finish, the soles are reinforced with metal hobnails and include a thin layer of snake skin between the sole and the foot bed.  The buckles and metal fitting often have a snake theme to them.

The wearer can move over sand and dunes as if they were clear and level terrain and their feet are protected from even the most intense natural heat (resistance to fire 10 against such).

They also impart some of the snake’s quickness to the wearer who gains a +2 bonus on Initiative and their strikes with the foot are treated as though by a +1 weapon.

First paragraph as above.

The wearer can move over sand and dunes as if they were clear and level terrain and their feet are protected from even the most intense natural heat (gaining resistance against such).

They also impart some of the snake’s quickness to the wearer who gains advantage on Initiative rolls and their strikes with the foot gain +1 to hit and to damage and are considered magic.

Notes: From snow to sand, good shoes are important to good travel.
