The lion paws can be used as an unarmed fighting aid.

Long Description

This is a pair of huge lion paws, which appear to have been fashioned into fingerless gloves. On the back of the paws strange symbols have been painted onto the tawny fur.

Appraises As

The pair of lion paws is about nine inches long and four inches wide. It is made of fur and could be worn as armour.

The claws may be operated using "extend claws" and "retract claws."

Acquisition

Completing the quest "Djelian Warrior Champion" yields these as a reward item.

Notes

Lion paws, when worn with claws extended, can greatly increase the damage inflicted by a player using unarmed combat. They will also protect the hands (but again, only when the claws are extended).

Lion paws are not considered weapons (contraband) by Imperial guards in Bes Pelargic, even when the claws are extended

Testing by Toffee and Swiper (in the research section) revealed that Lion paws (extended) does more damage than leather strapped gloves and iron gauntlets. OBBK netted similar results to lion paws (sometimes slightly more damage per round). They did less damage to armored foes (KS armor).
