    *From The Spell Compendium

    Class Skills: Appraise (Int), Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Disguise (Cha), Diplomacy (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (Religion) (Int) and Sense Motive (Wis) are class skills for Acolytes of the Blessed Imelda Marcos.

    Skill Points at Each Level: 2 + Int modifier.

    Never Pay Retail (Ex): With your keen fashion sense, you gain a +2 bonus to appraise any wearable item and +1 bonus to Diplomacy checks to any one who is trying to sell items (innkeepers, shopkeepers, etc.).

    Shoe Fetish (Ex): You are unable to resist buying a pair of shoes and will go to great lengths to obtain the perfect footwear. You gain a +2 bonus on Concentration checks but take a -1 penalty on Spot and Listen checks.

    Bigger, Better, Faster, More (Sp): You are very competitive by nature and expect the best of everything. You gain the benefit of eagle’s splendor once a day.

    The Shoes Make The Man (Or Woman) (Sp): While you are unable to resist buying a shoe and will go to great lengths to obtain the perfect footwear, any shoes on your feet become impervious to wear and dirt. Since cleanliness is next to godliness, you gain bless 3/times a day as a spell-like ability.

    You Look Marvelous (Sp): It’s just as important to look good as it is to feel good. You gain a +1 morale bonus to Intimidate checks.

    Never Let Them See You Sweat (Su): You are immune to Fear effects.

    NEW FEATS

    The Devil Wears Prada [General]
    Prerequisite: Must be an Acolyte of Blessed Imelda Marcos
    Benefit: You gain a +2 Attack Bonus and a +2 Armor Class bonus when fighting evil outsiders.

    These Boots Were Made For Walking [General]
    Prerequisite: Must be an Acolyte of Blessed Imelda Marcos
    Normal: You can walk 8 hours a day
    Benefit: You can walk an extra 4 hours a day before needing to make a Constitution check (see rules on Forced March).

    It's ALL About the Shoes

    Shoes of Protection and Teleportation
    These slippers offer +2 protection from evil, but the only place you can teleport is home. They come in either Silver or Ruby. [The masculine versons come in attractive gun-metal gray and maroon snake-skin leather.]
    Moderate Conjuration; CL 6th; Craft Wondrous Item, protection from evil, teleport; Price 2,500 GP, Weight 1 lb.

    Boots of Fascination
    Any member of the opposite sex who see these must make a Will save (DC 20) or be fascinated for 1d4 rounds. Any member of the same sex is envious that you have great shoes and will ask where you got them.
    Faint Enchantment; CL 1st; Craft Wondrous Item, hypnotism, Price 100, GP Weight 3 lbs.

    Bunny Sippers of Warmth
    These are especially coveted by the Fashionista who likes creature comforts. Usually they come in pink or white, but also can be found as Bear Slippers of Warmth for the discerning male Acolyte [known colloquially as the Metrosexual]. These slippers give a +2 bonus to Saving throws against cold-based effects.
    Faint Abjuration; CL 1st; Craft Wondrous Item, endure elements; Price 500 GP, Weight 1 lb.

    Cursed Rubber Galoshes of Practicality
    These are thoroughly practical galoshes, completely rainproof, but anyone wearing them must take a -2 penalty to all Charisma based checks. No respectable Fascinista would be caught dead in a pair of these. However, once donned they are impossible to remove without a remove curse spell. Once the curse is removed, the boots remain practical but will eventually wear out and become leaky.
    Faint Necromancy; CL 3rd, Craft Wondrous Item, bestow curse, mending; Price 400 GP, Weight 1 lb.

    Hippie sandals
    Hippie sandals give you a +2 bonus on Diplomacy checks when dealing with Fey creatures. Dwarves traditionally think they look better with socks but a real Fashionista knows that sandals should never be worn with socks. Wearing socks lowers the bonus to only +1.
    Faint Enchantment; CL 3rd; Craft Wondrous Item; good hope; Price 200 GP, Weight 2 lbs.

    Stiletto Shoes of Salsa Dancing
    These open-toed shoes come in variety of colors, with or without sequins. In either case, the heels add 3-5 inches of height to the wearer. These strappy shoes look deceptively fragile, but have a steel bar supporting the heel. They add +2 to Perform (Dance) and add 5 feet to the speed of anyone wearing them. As a last resort, the wearer can remove a shoe and use it as a weapon. The heel does 1d3 points of piercing damage. The shoe may be thrown and has a 10-foot range.
    Moderate Transmutation; CL 6, Craft Wondrous Item; cat's grace, haste; Cost 8,000 GP Weight 2 lbs.


    Cowboy Boots of Foot Stomping and Butt Kicking
    While there are a few male Acolytes of the Blessed Imelda Marcos who are secure in their masculinity to wear stilettos, most prefer the Cowboy Boots of Foot Stomping and Butt Kicking. They add +1 to Perform (Dance) and +1 to Tumble. They need not be removed to be used as a weapon. The boots add 1d4 points of bludgeoning damage to any kick made by the wearer.
    Moderate Transmutation; CL 6, Craft Wondrous Item; cat's grace, haste; Cost 8,000 GP Weight 4 lbs.


    I hope you at least got a chuckle out of this.

    "Greed is good,"
    -- Gordon Gecko, Wall Street

    They can be Lawful Good, Lawful Neutral, True Neutral, Neutral Good, Chaotic Neutral [which I left out earlier good catch] amd Chaotic Good. They simply can't be an alignment with an evil descriptor. Saying "any non-evil" is a lot simpler. [ Seeing as how I left out Chaotic Neutral my point is made]

    I should probably give them magic items too...so here they are. If anyone has a clue as to how to price these please let me know.

    Shouldn't the first ability be: "Never Pay Retail"? Also, I think belboz may have meant that he didn't understand why their alignment should be restricted, not the actual nature of the restriction.

    It only emphasizes the complexity that you forgot Chaotic Neutral.

    Yay for remembering that the original ones were silver! In fact "The Wizard of Oz" was a political statement in favor of the addition of silver backed currency to the gold-only system of the time. This would have increased inflation, which would have made it easier for farmers to pay back their loans.

    Yes, it should be "Never Pay Retail" -- my bad. I've fixed it.

    Also, this is based on Imelda Marcos (who at least was acquitted) unlike Leona Helmsley, "The Queen of Mean". Leona's acolytes would be evil. Imelda's are not, but they can be any other alignment. I didn't see the point of restricting it further. A lawful good Paladin following Imelda would want the best and shiniest armor, the best horse, etc.

    One restriction would be that they cannot take a vow of poverty. It's too anti-Imelda. I'm going to add that somewhere....

    I thought my quote from the movie Wall Street explained it but apparently not, too obsure probably.


    Thanks everyone for the feedback (even you arkanis).

    Dwarves never, ever, wear sandals, they don´t say/think you should wear them with socks, they think you shoulnd´t wear them at all.
    Also a suggestion :
    at :
    1st level : +5 feet per round added to base speed.
    3rd level : +10 feet per round added to base speed.
    5th level : +15 feet per round added to base speed.

    After all, its all about footwear...

    No special ability regarding stileto heals? Shoe fetished adventurer on the go must have stileto heals to fight, climb, dance, run, tumble, and ride in.

    This makes me wonder. Is there no complementary handbag/purce weapon master?

    Well as much as I love a good pairs of heels myself, they are not exactly appropriate for climbing and tumbling.

    Stiletto Shoes of Salsa Dancing
    These open-toed shoes come in variety of colors, with or without sequins. In either case, the heels add 3-5 inches of height to the wearer. These strappy shoes look deceptively fragile, but have a steel bar supporting the heel. They add +2 to Perform (Dance) and add 5 feet to the speed of anyone wearing them. As a last resort, the wearer can remove a shoe and use it as a weapon. The heel does 1d3 points of piercing damage. The shoe may be thrown and has a 10-foot range.
    Moderate Transmutation; CL 6, Craft Wondrous Item; cat's grace, haste; Cost 8,000 GP Weight 2 lbs.


    Cowboy Boots of Foot Stomping and Butt Kicking
    While there are a few male Acolytes of the Blessed Imelda Marcos who are secure in their masculinity to wear stilettos, most prefer the Cowboy Boots of Foot Stomping and Butt Kicking. They add +1 to Perform (Dance) and +1 to Tumble. They need not be removed to be used as a weapon. The boots add 1d4 points of bludgeoning damage to any kick made by the wearer.
    Moderate Transmutation; CL 6, Craft Wondrous Item; cat's grace, haste; Cost 8,000 GP Weight 4 lbs.

    I completely guessed on the pricing of these items.

    Well, your dwarves may not wear socks with sandals, but all the dwarves in my world do. They invented golf too. You should see the pants (Oy!).
    Dwarven fashion sense is an acquired taste.

    If you want to add speed, you need to add haste as a prerequisite and that adds to the cost. If you start adding too many qualities, you end up with a minor item that is outragously expensive for the effects.
