Psionic Items of Legend: Groundscorn Boots

120995

This installment of the series of pdfs featuring items that scale with your character’s prowess is 5 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/introduction, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

 

The Groundscorn Boots have actually a rather touching story – when an adventurer-couple was defeated by a dragon, one of them survived and proceeded to drown his sorrow. Thankfully, the Elans intervened and recreated his lost love as one of their own – however, sans memories. Overcoming this as well, both found love again and these boots were created by the reborn elan elocator as a means for her companion to keep up with her. Mechanics-wise, these boots start off as boots of skating and then, over their 5 power-level progression, net the Up the Walls-bonus feat, the option to defy gravity and even highjack teleportation effects to ride along. As a capstone, the boots allow the wielder to get all movement rates of nearby creatures for a limited time – whether by burrowing or flight, there’s no escape!

 

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout adheres to DSP’s printer-friendly two-column b/w-standard with a neat piece of full color artwork. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length.

 

Designer Eric Hindley has not created a particularly compelling narrative here – the story could have been embellished a bit more, but I’m nitpicking here – more importantly, he has created an extremely cool item that comes with signature abilities that progress logically as well as extended teamwork potential – a superb item and well worth 5 stars + seal of approval.

 

You can get these shiny boots here on OBS and here on d20pfsrd.com’s shop!
