    Yeah I had "a pair" with another character, they functioned as a set of gloves and arm protection, but I'm sure those are lost in a bank account somewhere. There were probably so many different custom items that a GM decided to toss together it's ridiculous. I think my favorite of all time are the buckler knives and lantern necklaces though lol.

      Buckler knives? Wait, are those knives with a built in buckler or vice versa, or are they bucklers with a built in sheath to hold a knife?

          They were bucklers that had a "hidden knife", you could use knife attacks while wielding it. Did tin knife damage, but that didn't matter since you had tin knife speed plus the ability to hold a lantern.

            I think these actually use to spawn on steps rioters. They were all the rage back in the practice dummy days.

            I thought it was just a rumor that it was all number-crunching and competitive training in a game with no logical endpoint since characters are ostensibly immortal and can always get better.

            You mean it's true?
