Changes coins into counterfiet gold.

AD&DEdit

Fool's Gold Edit

Debuted in the Player's Handbook as a magic-user spell.

Level: 2 School: Alteration
Components: V, S, M (any one of a 50 gp citrine, 100 gp amber,  500 gp topaz, or 1,000 gp corundum topaz, powdered and sprinkled over the area)
Range: 1" Casting Time: 1 round
Duration: 6 turns/level Saving Throw: None
Area: 1 cubic foot/level

Turns copper coins into gold coins, or objects of brass into solid gold...for a time. For this spell, assume 4,000 gp is one cubic foot, allowing a huge volume to be changed. Any creature viewing the gold can notice the transmutation if they make an Intelligence check (-1 per caster level). The "gold" may be dispelled if it is struck with an item of cold-wrought iron, reverting back to its natural state. The chance for this to happen depends on the material component used:

  • 50 gp citrine: 30%
  • 100 gp amber: 25%
  • 500 gp topaz: 10%
  • 1,000 gp corundum topaz: 1%

Fool's Gold
Spell Level: 2 Rarity: Common
Schools: Alteration, Alchemy, Earth, Illusion
Components: V, S, M (any one of a 50 gp citrine, 100 gp amber,  500 gp topaz, or 1,000 gp corundum topaz, powdered and sprinkled over the area)
Range: 10 yds Casting Time: 1 rd
Duration: 1 hr/lv Saving Throw: Special

Turns copper coins into gold coins or brass into solid gold...at least for the duration of the spell. The volume is enough to capture about 150 coins per caster level. Those looking at the "gold" are allowed a save, modified for Wisdom, with a -1 penalty per caster level. If the "gold" is struck by a piece of cold-wrought iron, it may revert to its original form. The chance of this happening depends upon the material component used in the casting of the spell:

  • 50 gp citrine: 30%
  • 100 gp amber: 25%
  • 500 gp topaz: 10%
  • 1,000 gp corundum topaz: 1%
