Well...

>>Does the spell merely make things look splendid, or does it actually change them? The name sounds as if it should be an illusion only, but Saphrax is acting as if the transformations were actual.<<

It truly changes things. The spell cannot create something from nothing, but can shift what already exists in a particular direction. The potential for good is maximized and made manifest. Which is very disconcerting, if you aren't used to that kind of energy.

Well-- lead to gold? <_< There could be an opportunity for money-making in there.

Re: Well...

I'm not sure what the EROI on that would be, really. The spell has a pretty tight radius, and I doubt it would work without a person as primary target. And it's polarity-sensitive ... I'm not sure if lead has the same kind of corrupt aura that ferrous aurum does. *chuckle* But there's probably someone out there trying to figure the equation.
