- Electrical Shock - The Gauntlet can fire out a bolt of electrical power that will do 4d6 hit points of damage unless a save vs. energy attacks is made. This attack will fry electronics and possibly short out a robotic/android PC.
- Laser Beam - The Gauntlet can discharge a series of four laser beams, one from each fingertip. This beam will also do 4d6 hit points of damage unless a save vs. energy attacks is made. However, the lasers will also set flammable materials on fire as well as burning a hole through softer materials.
- Crushing Grasp - The Gauntlet effectively doubles the strength of the wielder, bestowing all STR benefits associated with it. (If a PC has STR of 15, they have a STR of 30 when using the Gauntlet as an attack weapon.) Also, if the Gauntlet's wearer chooses to do so, they will do their STR times 2 hit points of damage just by holding and crushing the item. (A PC with STR of 15 will do 30 HP damage with the Crushing Grasp.)
- Stun - Upon contact, the Gauntlet can emit a Stun attack. If a save vs. stun attacks is failed, the victim will be stunned for 2d4 turns.
NOTE: This weapon is inspired by the episode “City of Evil” from the classic Ruby Spears post-apocalyptic cartoon “Thundarr the Barbarian". Stay tuned each week for “Thundarr Thursday”!
