Food and Water
Level: Water 1
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: 1 cu. ft./level of contaminated food and water
Saving Throw: Will negates (object)
Spell Resistance: Yes (object)
Spell Points: 1
Raising your hand towards the granary, you remove from the food all signs of taint.
This spell makes spoiled, rotten, poisonous, or otherwise contaminated food and water pure and suitable for eating and drinking. This spell does not prevent subsequent natural decay or spoilage. Aligned water and similar food and drink of significance is spoiled by this spell, but the spell has no effect on creatures of any type nor upon magic potions.
Note: Water weighs about 8 pounds per gallon. One cubic foot of water contains roughly 8 gallons and weighs about 60 pounds.
Augment: If you spend 4 additional spell points, the transmutation becomes fundamentally more powerful. Instead of targeting contaminated food and water, it targets nonliving, nonmagical, unattended objects weighing up to 1 lb./level. This transforms the objects into an equivalent weight of food. Each pound of food so created is sufficient to nourish one creature for 24 hours (similar to a pound of trail rations). The food so created is simple - highly nourishing, if rather bland. The food decays and becomes inedible after 24 hours, although it can be kept fresh for another 24 hours by casting another (unaugmented) instance of the spell on it.
