Gloves are protective coverings for the hands. They are considered a form of armor in roguelike terms. They usually provide minimal protection against attacks, but may have special abilities, such as bonuses to stats such as strength or dexterity.
Gloves may interfere with activities that require fine finger movements, such as casting spells or picking locks. Some magical gloves may negate these penalties or even enhance one's skill in these activities.
Some possible glove types: leather, gardening, workman's, silk, fingerless lace, boxing.
