Price 2,700 gp; Slot hands; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.; Aura faint evocation
Note This item is associated with a specific deity.
This metal gauntlet is the sort appropriate for wearing with chainmail, though versions suited for leather or full plate exist. Affixed to the wrist is a white cloth with a longsword embroidered in gold thread. Once per day, the wearer can speak a command word to give a weapon the wearer holds in that hand (or the gauntlet itself) a +1 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls for 1 minute. An Inheritor's gauntlet uses up the wearer's entire hands slot; the wearer can not use another item (even another Inheritor's gauntlet) that also uses the hands slot, though a matching non-magical gauntlet is often worn on the other hand.
If the associated deity is the wearer's patron, the gauntlet lets the wearer use any sword he holds in that hand as a holy symbol. Once per day, the wearer can speak a command word and give any sword he holds the powers of an evil outsider-bane weapon for 1 minute; this effect ends if the wearer drops the sword or removes the gauntlet. If the wearer uses a finger to draw The Inheritor's symbol on any solid surface, the symbol glows as brightly as a candle for 1 hour or until the wearer draws the symbol elsewhere (whichever comes first).
