I would l like to know if it would be possible for Xiao Lin to create pairs of gloves that do slashing damage instead of bludgeoning damage. Basically, gloves with claws.
I think if anyone in the world could do it, Xiao would be a likely candidate. He is a 25th level monk, and one of the top tailors, as well. Of course, he also yells out, "the rage of the red tiger" in battle, so I think claws would be perfectly appropriate for him.
If this would be possible, I would be happy to come up with however many variations of glove recipes would be necessary so they can scale with level.
