Mittens of Winter – new DnD magic item

Mittens of Winter magic item for Dungeons and Dragons

This new wondrous item for Dungeons & Dragons is a pair of magic mittens that protect you from the cold and create snowballs to hurl at friends and enemies alike.

Mittens of Winter

Wondrous Item, uncommon

These knitted mittens are snug and warm. While you wear them, you have resistance to cold damage.

Hurl Snowball. While wearing these mittens, you can create a snowball in your hands and hurl it at a creature or object within 30 feet. Make a ranged attack. On a hit, the target takes 1d4 cold damage and must succeed a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or be blinded until the end of their next turn. The snowball can also be thrown harmlessly if you choose.

There’s nothing like a warm pair of mittens on a cold winter day, especially if those mittens are enchanted. The Mittens of Winter offer resistance to cold damage, a useful feature for campaigns in cold places like Icewind Dale.

Resistance to cold damage can also save your D&D character when they face creatures like a white dragon or wizards with cold based spells like ray of frost or Otiluke’s freezing sphere.

Care to deal some cold damage of your own? The Mittens of Winter can also conjure snowballs to throw at your enemies. Sure, each snowball only does 1d4 of cold damage, but it can potentially blind the target.

Or if you want to play around without hurting anyone, the snowballs can be thrown harmlessly. Have fun!

Winter Wonderland

A Dungeons & Dragons adventure for Levels 1-5

To celebrate the winter solstice each year, the village of Hogswood holds a snow sculpture competition. An artistic friend in the village asks you to help her build an elaborate snow castle. The contest rules are pretty loose. For example, you can use Mage Hand or Ray of Frost to build your sculpture, but casting Fireball on a competitor’s sculpture is highly discouraged.

A pack of Kobolds are creating a sculpture of a white dragon. They view you as their toughest competition, so they will try every dirty trick in the book to sabotage your snow castle. Snowball fights are common during the winter festival, and the judges and other competitors overlook most nonlethal shenanigans.

If you overcome the crafty kobolds and complete your snow castle, you win the contest and are awarded 100 gp and a pair of Mittens of Winter.
