Shape Matter                                 Major Earth Utility

Duration: Permanent                                  Minimum Cost: 120 mana
Range: Inventory Object

Syntax: cast 'shape matter' <object>

With this spell, a scholar of earth may draw upon his knowledge of
fortifying magics and matter to reform an object, improving it. Weapons
thus shaped gain a bonus to damroll, and armor gains a bonus to hit points.
The process will also render the item moderately heavier.

Certain items -- in particular those too hardened to be destroyed -- cannot
be molded by this working. While a given object may be shaped more than
once, each usage of the spell on a single object carries with it increased
risk of destroying the item.

Primary Attributes: Wisdom, Dexterity
