You didn’t think I was going to carry that lump of gold as-is, did you?
You are able to shrink one nonmagical item (if it is within the size limit) to 1/16 of its normal size in each dimension (to about 1/4,000 the original volume and mass). This change effectively reduces the object’s size by four categories. Optionally, you can also change its now shrunken composition to a clothlike one. Objects changed by a shrink item spell can be returned to normal composition and size merely by tossing them onto any solid surface or by a word of command from the original caster. Even a burning fire and its fuel can be shrunk by this spell. Restoring the shrunken object to its normal size and composition ends the spell. A shrunk item that is swallowed or otherwise inserted into a creature’s body is forcefully (but harmlessly) regurgitated if the spell ends. The item does not return instantaneously to its former size and mass when the spell ends. As a result, if the spell ends while the object is in mid-air, or if the object is dropped as a result of the spell ending, creatures hit by the objects only take damage as if hit by the shrunken version1.
Augment: If you spend 6 additional spell points and 1,500 XP, the duration of this spell increases to permanent. An object affected by a permanent Shrink Item can be shrunk and expanded an indefinite number of times, but only by the original caster.
Why, yes, this is a hack to fix the damage exploit.↩
