‘They say the old goblin king’s treasure is buried near the Crooked Oak, but they’ve been saying that for years, for longer than I can remember,’ the old halfling farmer told the trio of dwarves.
The dwarves regarded each other.
‘We are just seeking a necklace stolen from our forefathers, anything else we find we will turn over to your community,’ one ofthe dwarves said as he handed the halfling a few pieces of silver for his information.
The halfling seemed to perk up at the thought of free gold and agreed to lead these strangers to the Crooked Oak and he left them to their work.
‘When we find the treasure do we hand over the gold to the farmer?’ one of the dwarves asked quietly.
The others laughed.
The wise old farmer heard it all. And he knew that the elf had renewed his spell in the area so that the dwarves would be searching and searching until they gave up, like so many before them.
Magpie’s Secret (Druid)
Range: 30′ diameter.
Duration: One year and one day.
When cast a druid may keep a small area safe from detection. This may protect a small cache of treasure, a sacred relic or artifact or any other valuable item(s). Those not seeking the subject of the spell will never even think it is there while those actively seeking this particular target will receive vague hints and even believe they hear or see events connected to the hidden target. While Dispel Magic will defeat this spell those who know that they are close to the area may make a Wisdom Saving Throw. A result of 1 or 2 on this test reveals the hidden cache.
