Magic Item: Boots of Defiance


"Boots - 34" by Bob Greyvenstein


Emblethicket fled from the town guards, a smile spreading across his face as the men scrambled to keep up with him. He was a gnome to start, but he was also wiry and nimble, and he had the Boots. The Boots looked gaudy and red, but he didn't care. He looked back one final time as he approached the open field full of deep snow. The guards shouted for him to stop, but he was already springing across the waist-high snow as if it wasn't even there. When he looked back, the guards were far behind him, struggling to clamber forward through the field but being slowed considerably, raising their fists at him in frustration.

These boots come up over the calves, to just under the knee with steel knee guards carved with intricate faces. Made of hard leather with exquisite decorative red and gold trim, these boots may seem like normal, fanciful noble's boots at first but are enchanted by a spell which grants the wearer freedom of movement through almost any terrain. It is said that the boots were not crafted by men, but by gods.


Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement)

As long as you wear these boots, you are under the effects of the Freedom of Movement spell as if it were cast at its base level.


Hope these boots give you an idea for your own magic item or maybe even that you'll want to use them for your campaign or one-shot! We're trying something new this month, and each Friday in October, the magic items have led up to now, where you get this free 5E magic item and accompanying NPC you can use in your campaigns or one-shots. Happy Halloween! -Joe
