The Grip faction of the Jubilant Knives created these gloves to offer as a reward during the Shadow Games. The gloves were entrusted to Aya Siropese who took the opportunity to further her own research.
The gloves were secured by the Silver Linings Trading Company in exchange for a history on the creation of the Shelter of Old Tenko. As the Bazaar wound down, Safeh Ometereh approached the group and congratulated them on their ‘good taste’.
He explained that gloves had been made as a test for ranking members of the guard. He informed the group that the gloves were known as ‘Vicegrips’ and they were forged by the unlikely duo of an yaguarete Elementalist and a Keresan Weaponsmith out of Timbertown. The wearer of the grips should find his hands more sure than ever before, assisting with all manner of tasks, not least of which: swinging a blade.
The duo revealed that the Vicegrips were made from True Earth discovered within the Shale Mounds
