Gold Digger

This item can be either a pest or a boon. Gold Digger is a shallow, twelve inch wide bowl carved from onyx and polished to a smooth, glossy finish. The edge of the bowl is gilded with an ornate, web-like pattern. at the bottom of a bowl a shallow coin-sized depression has been cut into the onyx. Gold Digger radiates Superb illusion, alteration and enchantment magic. A Superb test of divination magic will reveal the command words required to activate the device's magic.

To activate Gold Digger, a coin must be placed in the depression in the bottom of the bowl. Once a command word is spoken the coin becomes enchanted with a Superb illusion spell hiding its true nature. When a coin so enchanted is placed with other coins it will consume one to six coins per day, transporting them to the bowl that spawned it. This process continues so long as other coins are within ten feet of the enchanted one and the destination bowl is not full (it holds approximately 200 coins). The transport range to the bowl is unlimited. If no coins can be transported, the enchanted coin collapses into dust after 24 hours. The owner of the bowl can also destroy the coin with a command word.

An enchanted coin will reveal Superb illusion magic if examined for magical properties, and a Superb divination test will reveal the illusion to be obscuring the coin's true nature. Epic divination magic might reveal the coin's linkage to another object or its underlying nature. Attempts to dispel the coin's illusionary protection will cause the coin to collapse into dust.
