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!
