Slot -; Price 2,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.
This dense, gray slab of chalk is formed from the compressed ashes of its combustible material components.
The user of maker’s chalk can temporarily create any normal, inanimate object by drawing a crude depiction of it at real size on a flat surface. The object has the appearance of any normal weapon, armor or other mundane item of any value up to 10,000 gp, but is in fact composed of ashes. The object remains for 24 hours before dissipating in a cloud of harmless smoke. Regular interaction with the object does not allow a Will save to perceive the illusion, but use of detect magic or similar divination magic will, with success revealing the object to the viewer as a gray facsimile. As long as the object’s creator is within line of sight, she may also dismiss the object as a swift action. Dispel magic or an antimagic shell similarly dismisses the object.
Maker’s chalk can create up to 100 cubic feet of objects before being expended, each use counting as a minimum of 5 cubic feet. Drawing the objects takes 1 minute per 5 cubic feet, though a single handheld item can be drawn as a full-round action. The object functions as it would normally, but always has 10 hp per inch of thickness and hardness 5. Effects and properties of special materials such as adamantine, alchemical items and poisons do not apply. Magic items and creatures cannot be created. Any created foodstuffs taste fresh but do not provide nourishment and, when the effect expires, leave a sudden ashen taste in the consumer’s mouth.
