Boots of Bounding

Feet Slot Item - Transmutation Aura

These boots have the appearance of fine footwear, and can range in appearance from light slippers all the way through sleek work boots to full-plate sollerets with interleaved metal plates that culminate into a point.

In all cases, Boots of Bounding are extremely lightweight (indeed, they resist being put onto the ground, even when not activated). Boots of Bounding grant the wearer a Hover speed, allowing them to cross any space, as long as they begin and end their movement adjacent to a surface. Boots of Bounding can be used to travel effortlessly through the canopy of a forest, to bob along the ceiling of a dungeon, or to leap across chasms.

It requires a standard action to activate the boots of bounding, and a swift action to turn them off. There is no limit to how long they can be left in an active state, though it can be quite risky to sleep while hovering.

Boots of bounding must be worn for 24 hours to attune them to the owner's aura, and until that time has passed, they provide no benefit to the owner. Once attuned, the Hover movement speed they provide is considered a permanent ability for the owner, until such time as the attunement is lost.

The owner of this magic item must wear it continuously for 24 hours to attune it to their aura, and until that time has passed, it provides no benefits to the wearer.
