I need some help with a magic item for my campaign. The players somehow saved The Grim Reaper’s (our god of Death and the Harvest) true love, and in return he gave the players a set of Reaper Gauntlets. The carrier collects the souls of those he slays in these gauntlets, and the idea was that when the player could offer these souls to the Reaper when Making Camp. In return, the reaper would give the character a favor or offer him a boon.
Problem is, I’m really not getting any ideas for these boons, except to allow the players an audience with a departed soul, any soul. Even one that has entered the Black Gate.
The gauntlets are supposed to work like this:
The bearer of these gauntlets can collect the souls of the slain. Whenever the bearer kills a humanoid while wearing these gauntlets, they take 1 soul. When the bearer makes camp, he may offer all souls in the gauntlets and roll+souls offered. On 10+ choose one. On a 7-9 choose one, but Death finds the offering measly and demands a favor in return.
– Gain an audience with any departed soul or Death. You may ask three questions they must answer truthfully.
– Ignore the damage from the next blow that would bring you to 0 hp.
– Remove a debility from a yourself or an ally.
On a miss, Death is insulted by your offering, and you must pay the price. The GM will tell you what this entails.
Does anyone have further ideas? I really want to draw on the “Harvest” domain of the god, but I can’t think of anything.
