As a touch attack, Diplomacy does 3d6 lightning damage, and if the target fails on a Constitution saving throw, they are stunned for a round. However, the gauntlet also has a low chance of catastrophic failure on each use.
During Vox Machina's year-long break, Percy enlisted the help of Taryon Darrington to create a second feature for Diplomacy. When activated, this feature creates a Silence spell with a ten-foot diameter that moves with the gauntlet, which Percy can use to silence the sounds of his gunshots. The drawback to this is that the Silence bubble blocks all sound; Percy cannot speak or hear anything while the silencer is active.
