Mirgud dug furiously. If the dwarves caught up to him, he would be killed for sure. But he could only dig so fast. There was simply no escaping at this rate. Surely he would break out into a natural tunnel soon.
He could hear their boots on the soft earth he was leaving behind. They were so close. He kept digging.
Quudala is worshipped by most of the evil creatures living in the deep, but despite their subterranean lifestyles, not all of her followers are adept diggers. For her most dedicated followers from among the Goblins, Gnomes, Drow, and Livecaps, she has Digger’s Gauntlets. Digger’s Gauntlets have some mystical power to them, but they are also built for mundane functionality. They wear like leather gloves, but provide superior armor at 2 blunt, 4 pierce, and 8 cut.
As the name suggests, they also grant the ability to dig through dirt. The digging speed of the wearer is (Speed+Stength)/2 cubic feet per second. This means that a human character with average strength can dig 17 cubic feet per second, or a man sized tunnel about 1.5 feet per second. That’s really fast! Maybe that’s why they’re so sought after. Each cubic foot dug fatigues the digger as much as a throwing a solid punch would. This means that while the wearer can dig extremely fast, he becomes quite tired in a matter of seconds.
How would you you use the digger’s gauntlets in your party? Would you alternate diggers or stick to one while the others stay fresh to guard? What kind of situations would they come in handy?
