This knuckle plate of this metal glove contains a pneumatic mechanism that fires the fist forward a high speed when a target is struck. Powered either by magic or some internal power source, this pneumatic mechanism greatly increases the power of a punch. The pneumatic gauntlet also lets you deal lethal damage rather than nonlethal damage with unarmed strikes. A strike with a pneumatic gauntlet is considered an armed attack. The cost and weight given are for a single gauntlet.
On a critical hit, a creature must succeed a reflex save (DC=20+Base Attack Bonus+Str) or be knocked back 1d6×5ft, take 1d6 damage/10ft, and fall prone. When colliding with an object a struck creature may break through if the object is weak. If not, they fall prone and take damage as if they had flown the full distance +1d6 extra damage.
Crafting a pneumatic gauntlet requires the creation of a magical battery to power the attacks. This battery has a Craft DC of 20 and costs 40gp of raw materials (the price of the battery is included int the price of the gauntlet shown above). One must have a caster level to craft a pneumatic gauntlet battery.
On a roll of a natural one, the weapon's battery malfunctions, electrocuting the wearer and rendering them sickened for one minute.
