Description
Rumors tell of gauntlets forged by citizens of a long-dead tribe that lived in the desert. These gauntlets were enchanted to allow the wearer to lift incredible loads, allowing the dwindling civilization to build shelters they desperately needed. A day came when a member of the tribe discovered while building that the gauntlets allowed him to swing weapons with ease, and he stole a pair of the gauntlets to use for his own devices. When it was discovered that one of the pairs was missing, the tribe panicked and hid the remaining pair deep in their temple, lest it be stolen as well.
It is said that the tribesman who stole the gauntlets reforged them into a more powerful form. He hid them in his castle, away from his minions, to keep them from rising against him. These gauntlets are said to be cruder in appearance and have warped from bearing weights put on them by the false king.
Once the civilization died out, the magic contained within both pairs of gauntlets eroded as the valley of time between their civilization widened.



Storytime is over.
The Silver Gauntlets can be found in Ragnvald, while the Golden Gauntlets can be found in Forelhost. And yes, the Gauntlets do not look like the Gauntlets you remember from Ocarina of Time, and yes, they do look different, for the reasons explained in my lame backstory. The Golden Gauntlets are based on Dragonscale gauntlets, and are intended to look like artifacts created by an evil and powerful warlock. My reasoning for keeping the dragonscale gloves on the gauntlets is that these things once carried enormous blocks of rock. Anything but dragonscales would have ripped.

The Silver Gauntlets are Light Armor with a base rating of 12, equal to Dragonscale Gauntlets.
The Golden Gauntlets are Heavy Armor with a base armor rating of 18, equal to Daedric Gauntlets.
Both of them fortify your attack strength, unarmed attacks, as well as your attack speed and carrying capacity.
Basically, the Gauntlets make two-handed weaponry actually useful!

Here's a video explaining their exact locations:

Also on the Nexus[skyrim.nexusmods.com]

Since people keep asking, the mod that changes how your character holds two-handed weapons is called YY Anim Replacer - Zweihander.[skyrim.nexusmods.com] It's a Nexus exclusive.

NOTE: Bethesda didn't do a terribly great job with sleeves of armors, so the Silver Gauntlets occasionally have massive gaps behind them when worn with armors like Glass or Blades armor. It's a problem I cannot solve, unfortunately.

Version History:
June 2nd, 2013 - The Silver Gauntlets will now count toward the armor set bonuses for Dragonscale, and the Golden Gauntlets count toward Daedric and Dragonplate. The Golden Gauntlets have been slightly strengthened as well.
May 16th, 2013 - added video explaining locations of both pair of Gauntlets.
May 14th, 2013 - First Release

[ http://tf3dm.com/3d-model/jack-of-blades-28108.html ] This model is for Jack of blades. This cool fable villain must be imported into armor, no one has accepted the challenge of making the model into skyrim armor. Please help by reposting this through steam or anywhere else to make my dream come true. Thank you ^-^

Even if the boomerang was a spell, that wouldn't really solve the issue of making it return to the player.
Shadow the Hedgehog Aug 9, 2014 @ 1:21pm 
the boomerang could be custom spell

The Hero's Bow is definitely possible. I made a few bows for my main project, Relics of Hyrule (which is too big for the Workshop). Bombs would be tricky, though, and I'm fairly certain that a throwable, returning boomerang would be impossible in Skyrim's engine.

k i was thinking of something like the Hero's bow, the boomerang and the bombs
JKalenad  [author] Aug 9, 2014 @ 12:50pm
