Grappling Hook Hand
Aura moderate transmutation; CL 7th
Slot hands; Price 10,000 gp; Weight 2 lbs.
This lusterless obsidian-hued iron hook is attached to a cup that can be placed over an existing hand or stump. On command, it projects a length of rope up to 50 feet long. It can be propelled outward as a grappling hook, the end magically finding purchase on any surface it can pierce. If commanded to unhook, it spools back into its base. On command, it enwraps an opponent, allowing the wearer to make a grapple check with a 15-foot reach.
The rope can be spooled out entirely and used as a mundane 50-foot rope. It can be fed back in
as a standard action, but the item’s other abilities do not function as long as the rope is removed. Note that only the original rope (with its hook) can be placed in the grappling hook hand.
In addition, the hook can be used as a simple light melee weapon (Medium 1d6, Small 1d4, x2 critical modifier), or a thrown weapon with a 10-foot range increment.
The rope spools back into the base very quickly, returning as a swift action if the hook is unencumbered (i.e., not grappling, hooked, etc.).
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, Item, Craft Magic Arms and Armor, animate rope, telekinesis; Cost 5,000 gp
