(proposal)New artifact : pair of Pepper gloves

I thought of an interesting item through Gourmand. With gloves made of pepper, Any terrible meat makes it easy to eat.
Of course, in return for sneezing all day long. :)
and, The smell of pepper in the dungeon will reveal the presence of the owner. :)

-1 pepper gloves{Gourm, *Noise, Stlth-}

A pair of gloves.
Achoo! ...Wait, pepper?

Re: (proposal)New artifact : pair of Pepper gloves

Why would we need another useless artifact?

It's not useless, it's harmful IMHO, empty gloves slot is better. Gourmand is useful just for casters and last things casters want are to make noise, reduce stealth and get penalty to AC.

Also "interesting item through Gourmand" is quite close to oxymoron IMHO

Also, the only positive effect is already on a common amulet.

But you quickly find more useful amulets. If I'd find these gloves as a caster (and no better gloves, which is often the case), I would probably use them. Casting LRD or fireball is not compatible with stealth anyway.

It is. Typically I want to retreat after casting loud spells and then stealth really helps to see wandering monsters instead of ones which immediately notice you and start chasing.

Well, here's a take on it:

+2 cannibal's gloves (gourmand, devour monster)
Once worn by a legendary ghoul countess, this elegant pair of evening gloves compel their wearer to sample any flesh they can get their hands on, from masterfully cooked sirloins to the tender limbs of ballroom guests.

Hated by good gods. Whenever you defeat a monster, you are healed based on its HD, hydraform-style.

Re: (proposal)New artifact : pair of Pepper gloves

Yeah I agree with Croases - if you really want an unrand glove with gourmand on it, at least make it strong enough to be useful. But really, the solution here is to stop caring about food. From my last win:

Comestibles
c - 76 rations

For the love of god (and by that I mean Cheibriados), just eat your damned food.
