Quarry                          Path of the Stoneshaper Creation

Duration: Instantaneous                             Minimum Cost: 150 mana
Cooldown: 30 - 60 hours, varies by skill

Syntax: cast 'quarry'

Those who study the path of the stoneshaper learn to force their wills
upon the earth, digging up stone to bend to their whims. With this spell,
one so trained may produce pieces of stone armor somewhat at random, based
on the predominant type of stone forming the ground in that room or area.
This armor may be carved with the stonecraft skill just like any stone
object. Certain magi have affinities for particular stone types, and will
more regularly quarry better equipment from those types; the specific types
vary from character to character.

In addition to armor, there is a small chance of quarrying a gem at random
from the earth. This gem may be sold or otherwise used like any gem.
