My second attempt at Piazo's RPG superstar came to an end yesterday as I didn't make through the initial harrowing process. No hard feelings, the contest has 1000+ entrants and making it into the top 32 is a pretty long shot even if you're a game design genius. Anyway, as before I'll share my entry this year:

Boots of Trailblazing
Aura: Faint Transmutation; CL 5th
Slot feet; Price 15,000 gp; Weight 3 lbs.
These heavy, travel-worn boots warp terrain around the wearer creating a smoother, flatter path for travel. Beneath the soles of the boots muddy ground dries and firms, dead wood and branches decompose and living plants shrivel or squirm out of the way.

This trail forms immediately in front of the wearer's feet and extends 10 feet to both sides. The trailblazing affects any areas of undergrowth, rubble or bog making them one level less difficult (for example, heavy undergrowth is treated as light and light undergrowth is removed). This effect is permanent until reversed by outside forces such as plant growth or natural erosion but it is impossible to blaze the same trail over again (so you cannot walk over Heavy undergrowth twice to remove it completely). The trailblazing effect does not provide any protection against magically created growth or barriers such as entangle or wall of thorns and will not alter man-made terrain features.

When traveling overland the wearer treats all Trackless terrain as though they were traveling along a trail. Since the trail is permanent any companions benefit from this as well so long as the wearer takes the lead.
Construction Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, Diminish Plants, Stone Shape; Cost 7,500 gp
