OGC:Enchanted Manacles (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
|This material is published under the OGL 1.0a.|
By weaving enchantments into metal, a smith can provide a set of manacles with the strength of a magical blade. A set of enchanted manacles has an enhancement bonus with a value of +1 to +5. Enchanted manacles are unnaturally durable. The enhancement bonus is added to the hardness and hit point values of a set of enchanted manacles. More significantly, the manacles cannot be damaged at all unless the attacker is using a magical weapon with an enhancement value equal to or greater than that of the manacles. Strength alone cannot burst a set of enchanted manacles unless the prisoner’s natural attacks are considered to be magical weapons, and the break DC of the manacles is increased by 2 points for each +1 enhancement bonus.
Enchanted manacles must be masterwork quality. As a general rule, the locking mechanism is built into the manacles and has the same defense as the manacles themselves. The cost of the lock should be added to the cost of the manacles. The DC of any Open Lock or Escape Artist check made to remove or escape from the manacles is increased by 2 points for each +1 enhancement bonus, so a set of +3 enchanted manacles (good lock) would have an Open Lock DC of 36 and an Escape Artist DC of 41.
It is possible to combine the abilities of enchanted manacles with other forms of mystical restraint, such as mana manacles, manacles of maintenance, a collar of pain, or a collar of dreamless sleep. Combine the costs of the two items and increase the total by 10%, then use the higher caster level of the two items.
Enchanted manacles can be designed for Medium or Small creatures; the cost of crafting them for creatures of other sizes follows the same ratio as for mundane manacles.
