As part of my conversion process of bringing the Jade Regent over to second edition is to convert the special items from each book.

Here is another item I have converted over to Pathfinder 2 from the Jade Regent Adventure Path. It are currently available in all three games.

Spiked Gauntlet – Item 0

Spiked Gauntlet

  • Simple Melee Weapon,
  • Cost 3 sp,
  • Damage 1d4 Piercing,
  • Bulk L, Hands 1 Hand, Group Brawling,

Strapped to the hands, these spiked climbing claws grant a +1 competence bonus on Acrobatic and Athletic checks.

The claws can be used as Spiked Gauntlets, an can do slashing or piercing damage.

Note: I have giving the gauntlets +1 and striking, making them a useful weapon as well as a tool. This would be a reason for the natives of Erutaki to keep making them. I noticed I had forgotten to add the spider climb ability to the cost of the items. This has been fixed in the gamemastery guide versions.
