Short Description

As minor creation, plus stone and metal.


A tiny piece of matter of the same sort of item you plan to create with major creation.

Living GreyhawkOpen

You create a non-magical, unattended object of nonliving, vegetable, stone, crystal, metal, or the like matter. The volume of the item created cannot exceed 1 cubic foot per caster level. You must succeed on an appropriate skill check to make a complex item.

Attempting to use any created object as a material component causes the spell to fail.
