Heart of a Metallic Dragon
Description: The heart of any one of these good-aligned dragons makes a fabulous spell component for those evil divine spellcasters who manage to either slay a dragon or purchase a dragon’s heart. The heart of a metallic dragon turns solid and metallic within three weeks of the dragon’s death. It is only in this metallic form that the heart has any value as a supplementary spell component.
Effect: Upon casting, a Spellcraft check (DC 20 + spell level) must be made by the caster. On a successful check, the spell is cast as if the caster were ten levels higher than he actually is. Any other supplementary spell component may be used alongside this one.
Negative Side Effect: The spell has no effect and is wasted. The spellcaster is immediately branded with a visible mark upon his face that identifies him as an evil individual. This mark may never be removed, not even through magical means.
Casting Time Modifier: +2 rounds.
Component Type: M.
Knowledge (Religion) DC: 25.
Weight: Average of 45 lbs. The exact weight depends on the type and age of the dragon. DMs judgment is necessary.
Value: Depends on dragon type. 3d6 x 1000 in proper coinage is the average value. Example: Asilver dragon’s heart would be worth 3d6 x 1000 silver pieces. Agold dragon’s heart would be worth 3d6 x 1000 gold pieces.
