Powers: These gauntlets provide a +1 armor bonus that stacks with other armor bonuses if the wearer has only a breastplate or no armor. When wearing these gloves and a breastplate, the wearer's armor is treated as heavy instead of medium. His maximum Agility bonus worsens to +1, armor check penalty to -6, and arcane spell failure chance to 35%. The armor bonus stacks with that provided by the helm of valor and legplates of valor.
The wearer's armed and unarmed strikes punish his victims with blows that weaken even the strongest man. When the wearer successfully strikes a critical hit, the victim takes an additional +2d4 points of damage and must make a DC 12 Fortitude save or take 1 point of temporary Strength damage.
The wearer also gains a +5 bonus on rolls to prevent being disarmed.
