[New Spell] Touch of Gold

Touch of Gold

Is this going to work?” Chalk whispered to the Scholar of Wexos. The illusionist grinned broadly.

The garishly painted cart that the adventurers rode in had an unusual ox pulling it into the village of Scurf.

Behold peasants! We are They Pulled by the Golden Ox of Anjathay!” the Scholar of Wexos shouted.

The yokels were amazed and confused. Some scattered, some hunted for pitchforks.

A night’s rest is all we ask, simple peasants!” the illusionist added.

The golden ox snorted as it pulled the cart along.

Oh my!” Koram said with surprise.

What?” asked Chalk.

I hope the peasants aren’t inclined to dig through what the ox just left behind for gold,” the fighter replied.

Touch of Gold (Illusionist)

Level 1

Range: Touch

Duration: One day per level of illusionist

A noted twist on the magic-user spell False Gold, this spell is a bit more open. The caster may touch anything and give it a golden sheen, appearing to be solid gold. This includes plants and living organisms. While golden animals might actually be accepted as magic items, it is the more mundane objects that sometimes trip the illusionist up. Those closely inspecting the surface of an objected enchanted by this spell will see something wrong on a d6 result of 1-5 for a caster of level 1-3, at levels 4-7 this magic becomes more convincing, becoming a d6 result of 3-6. Eighth level and beyond will fool all but those who roll 1d6 and get a result of 6. Enchanted objects will remain “golden” until the spell duration is up.

    I know at least one illusionist character back in the day who would have loved a spell like this…of course the other characters would have wound up killing him eventually. 😀

    I think that this will happen to the illusionist in our group if he ever learns this spell.
    After a few uses:
    “Hey, look! I found a gold statue!”
    “No you didn’t.”
    Later.
    “Wow! A gold monkey!”
    “No it isn’t.”
    Slightly later.
    “Gold coins!”
    “No, that is silver.”
