Tired of counting coins? Here's your solution!
Beeble’s Instant Coin Counter
Components: V, S, F
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: Neg.
This spell is incredibly simple in nature: It allows the caster to accurately know exactly how many coins are in a pile and what denomination they are. For example, the caster and his party comes across a large hoard of coins in a dungeon. There isn’t enough time to count the coins, so the caster casts this spell. He then knows that the pile contains 123 platinum pieces, 1,465 gold pieces, 1,987 electrum pieces, 2,478 silver pieces, and 7,643 copper pieces. The party can then grab what they carry and be on their way. The focus for the spell is a small, hand-sized abacus worth 500 gold pieces. The somatic component is the action of counting on the abacus and the verbal component is the murmuring of the numbers being counted.
Are you tired of spending all of your time in a dungeon counting coins while monsters assail you from all sides? Did you just stumble into the dragon’s hoard but only want the valuable coins? Are you so rich that your coins are heaped into a big pile in the corner of your keep and you don’t know how much or what is in there? WELL, HERE’S THE SOLUTION FOR YOU!
See, my friends, I, too, was once in the same boat you are. When adventuring with my party, Tinder’s Champions, we’d find a pile of coins and then spend hours laboriously counting and separating and recounting everything there, and then having to recount it once again after the dwarves jumped into the freshly-counted pile and scattered coins all over the place. I knew there had to be a better way!
I put my nose to use and developed a spell that allows you to instantly know how many of each denomination is in a pile of coins!
