We wrap up Volcano Week our tribute to one of nature’s most impressive devices: the mountains all around us, which at any time could explode with such magnificent force and overwhelming presence as to wipe us all out as though we never were. Today, we’ve collected an eclectic handful of magic items to help us celebrate these wonderful and terrible things. Check ‘em out for yourself!
LAVA BOOTS PRICE 500 gp
Slot none; CL 1st; Weight 1 lb.
Aura faint transmutation
These sturdy red boots are exceedingly rare and are usually sized for Small creatures, leading some scholars to believe that they were invented by a now extinct race of small, volcano-dwelling humanoids. While the boots seem to be of approximate size for a human child, the boots quickly resize to fit any wearer.
The wearer of these boots gains a limited ability to walk on lava. The boots allow the wearer to walk on lava (but not water) as though he were affected by a water walk spell and he suffers no damage from the lava. While this ability functions constantly, the wearer can only use it to walk on lava for 1d6 contiguous rounds before the magic fails and the user is submerged in lava.Construction Requirements Cost 250 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, water walk

VOLCANIC SHIELD PRICE 75,170 gpSlot none; CL 1st; Weight 15 lbs.
This heavy shield is made from polished layers of obsidian so thin as to be translucent, allowing the observer a clear view of the dancing fires trapped between the layers of volcanic glass.
In addition to functioning as a +5 heavy steel shield, a volcanic shield has the ability to transform itself into a portal which summons forth lava to burn creatures in a 15-foot cone. This ability can be used 5 times per day and requires a standard action to activate. Any creature within the lava’s path suffers 5d6 points of fire damage and must succeed on a Reflex save (DC equal to the damage suffered) or suffer a -2 penalty on attack rolls and Reflex saving throws for 1d6 rounds.
