For centuries, mages in Britannia searched for a way to turn lead into gold. And finally they found it in this spell. Casting it on a chunk of lead turns said chunk into a gold nugget. However, economists can be assured that this won't result in a gold inflation in Britannia. After the mages had finally discovered the spell, they were disappointed, since the cost of the reagents for this spell was equal to the value of the created gold.
In the end it's a lesson that even the biggest alchemistic dream can be proven useless by simple economic realities.
- It's exactly as said, the price for the reagents for one casting equals the value of one gold nugget.
- Of course, should you get many free reagents, the spell does come in handy.
- The Book of Fellowship is wrong. In the book it's said that ten nuggets are created. However, only one is created.
