From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Wondrous Item, artifact (requires attunement)

The Shadow is a very powerful sorcerer, not just a deity. He had made a pair of gloves a long time ago that could control the dead, but has not since then known what happened to them. Last he knew, they were in a temple built for the Shadow and then they weren't. Maybe he simply misplaced them, but maybe they were taken by humans. Either way, they are very powerful items that can be split up between 2 people for half the power.

Death's Power. When a single person wears both the gloves, they are able to cast the spells animate dead & create undead. When you cast the spells with this item, the duration of your control over the undead you create becomes twice what they are. When a single creature wears one glove, they can only cast animate dead.

Shadow's Resistance. While you are attuned to the gloves, you become immune to necrotic damage but you gain a weakness to radiant. Additionally, you become sensitive to sunlight. You gain disadvantage on attack rolls and Wisdom (Perception) checks when you, the target of your attack, or whatever you are trying to perceive is in direct sunlight.

Dark Magic. Along with the necromancy magic you can cast with the gloves, you are also able to cast darkness and finger of death. If you only have one glove, then you can only cast darkness with this property.

Destroying the Shadow's Gloves. To destroy the gloves, you must subject it to over 30 hit points worth of radiant damage.
