The Gauntlet of Challenge was the item needed to challenge Death, Lord Samhain.
It is made of black iron and the purist silver covered in black enamel. It has a message inscribed upon it;
- "Flesh may cross the portal,
- and seek its master Death.
- Flesh may go where Death has trod,
- and challenge, like Scheherazade,
- He Who Reigns Beneath the Sod,
- to spare a mortal's breath."
Another message upon its back stated;
- To challenge Death, lift up no human hand.
- To fight with Death, take up no earthly sword.
- The hand is here--the sword is yours.
