Rock to mud - industrial application

So you have a slew of high level wizards and druids (9+ levels). They are tired of adventuring and go into the fortification or architectural business. With the use of rock to mud and mud to rock, the wzards can build a lot of interesting things. Imagine if you will....

Build a framework of wood and fill it full of mud. Cast mud to rock and you have a rock structure. Solid rock.The spell effects two 20 foot cubes worth of stone/mud. (The spell description needs some work I think). That 8000 cubic feet. So one 9th druid could create a solid block of stone 10 feet wide x10 feet deep and 80 feet long - a day. Hire some workers, build a frame, fill it with mud and thence again the next day. One could build a square stone fort with 80 foot walls to a side, 10 feet wide and 20 feet tall in 8 days.

EIGHT DAYS.

Three a month

36 a year

360 in ten years.

Imagine what ten could do.

Want to move a mountain - go right ahead.

Also, the mud transforms to rock in whatever shape the mud is in. The frame become important. Imagine what one can build with a wood frame. The possibilities are limitless.

Hmmm...I wonder if the spell is TRULY "forever." Could be that it only lasts a number of years - or months - and no one ever followed up on it before. Would make for an interesting catastrophe about 30 years down the line...

(We gamesmasters have such nasty thoughts!)

Um - aren't you thinking "Mud to Rock" instead of .... never mind.

I pulled this stunt with steve using several spells. he put an end to it maximizing the number of permanent application to equal one's level.

he did not like my idea of 1001 lights

And have I ever seen Stephen and Davis in the same room together at the same time? Noooooo--~! Therefore, I speculate they're one and the same.

I have my suspicions about Clark Kent and Superman too...
