Shrink Item

You peer at the item through a crystal lens, noting how it becomes smaller and smaller. When you remove the lens, it remains shrunk.
Level: 9 Component Cost: 320 gp
Category: Creation Market Price: 800 gp
Time: 10 minutes Key Skill: Arcana
Duration: Until restored

You are able to shrink one 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). You can shrink a container and all its contents, but they must all be restored together. Objects changed by a shrink item spell can be returned to normal size merely by squeezing them or tossing them onto any solid surface. Restoring the shrunken object to its normal size ends the effect.

The maximum original size of the object to be shrunk depends on the Arcana check.

Arcana Check Result Maximum original size (example)
9 or lower Tiny (one-handed weapon)
10-19 Small (two-handed weapon)
20-29 Medium (suit of armor)
30-39 Large (cart)
40 or higher Huge (cottage)

An item that is shrunk retains any magical powers, but cannot use its enhancement bonus and properties (either mundane and magical). If it is a worn item, it cannot now be worn except by someone 3 size categories smaller than it was originally made for.
