Grognardia and the other on Delta's D&D Hotspot. I won't try and beat either of those because I really couldn't. I will suggest that when this and even more so the originals that this was created from were most likely godsends to the haggard early DM. Today we have a wealth of printed material and an Internet that will generate us hundreds of treasure hoards or encounter sets in a second. We can then print that to PDF and save it or if we want to old school it we could hard copy it. Back in 1977,1978 or even 1980 that was not an option for the average DM. To create something like this would have meant gathering all of the printers resource material at a table/desk and then writing each by hand. This item alone may have saved the early DM a full day or more of time of what would have been very repetitious work. In the end there is not much need to have this any more. It is a relic of a time when things were not so easy. So you can save money and not buy one but it is a nice reminder of what others had to do to get us to where we are today.
Duration: 6 Turns/Level
Ares Effect: Item Touched
Casting Time: 4 Segments
Saving Throw: None
With the casting of this spell the magic user brings into existence exact duplicates of any normal non-living item of their choice. The item can be no larger than ten square feet and must weigh less than 200 pounds. The spell will allow the caster to create one copy for each level of experience though they may create less than that number if desired.
The caster may touch a magical item and it will be duplicated as an item of the exact same physical nature but it will be non-magical in nature. Any normal item touched will be a fully functional copy provided that the original item was in good working order to begin with. It is important to note that perishable items may not be created by means of this spell. This will include foodstuffs but not water.
The material component of this spell is a small silver mirror that is held over top of the item to be duplicated. The mirror is not consumed by the casting of the spell.
Disclaimer: The spells that you will see, for how ever long the write ups last, were all written up back in the 80's so the terminology may not appropriate for anything other than 1e and depending on how well I did back then it may be slightly off for that as well. If there is any duplication of spells that exist now it is most likely I wrote mine first :) Please feel free to comment on them but try not to be too hard on me. If anyone wishes to use these in anything they print please let me know in advance and all I ask is proper credit.
