Feb 20 '19 at 19:24 comment added Yakk @PeterCordes You can turn a plat coin into a pile of metal stock, quite clearly by RAW. And the plat coin (same weight as a gold coin) makes 10 times as much metal stock.
Feb 20 '19 at 19:20 comment added Peter Cordes I guess that's the only way of looking at it that makes sense. I wanted the flavour to be "you are granted the power to reshape metal" (you do the crafting), not "sacrifice stuff in exchange for other stuff" (your god does the crafting).
Feb 20 '19 at 19:12 comment added Yakk @PeterCordes You are sacrificing valuables to a god of the forge; does it really seem wrong that a decorated, well crafted sacrifice is worth more?
Feb 20 '19 at 18:28 comment added Peter Cordes I guess magic is magic, but having the conserved quantity be "intrinsic value" rather than mass really exposes how game-mechanicy this ability is with your examples. It just seems super weird to me that carving some details scrollwork into a bar of metal will let you make a larger item out of it, because it's a better raw material. It's supposed to be Forge-related, not bartering trading it to your god in exchange for an item of equal value. (I think the "equal value" rule wording was supposed to be just an approximation for the right amount of raw material.)
