Ged will make you some gloves for a price. He makes ratskin, wolfskin, bearhide, or lionskin gloves. All require some money and a specific pelt. You need to beamiable with him to buy lionskin gloves. The Ratskin Gloves cost 6 gold and a giant rat pelt (ac 3 , negative 5 charisma), the Bearskin Gloves cost 25 gold and a high quality bear skin (ac 5), the wolfskin gloves cost 13 gold and a high quality wolf pelt and the lionskin gloves cost 96 gold and a high quality lion skin. It is told that a tiger spawns some times in the south west corner of Kith forest near the orc spawn and gives a high quality skin, and that they are also dropped by highland Lions in NK.
The gloves are good for druids who can't wear metal.
