Grappler Gauntlets

Item

Image grapplergauntlet.jpg
Description Studded with blades and run through by tension cables, these gloves aren't really suited to delicate work. In fact, they don't even seem very suited to being put around flesh and blood hands.

Even without being able to turn them to full power, though, they should give a decisive advantage against any enemy that gets too close.
Type Weapon (Gloves)
Effects +3 Melee Power
Bonus Melee Power at Short Distance

The Bonus to Melee Power you get at short distance is as follows. The distance column is the sum of your technique's chain number and your opponent's. If your attack is unopposed, things are more complicated. How exactly the opponent's chain is treated is to be spaded.
