Detect Treasure is a 9th-level ritual.[AP:154]

You hold out a gold rod while you focus your mind on finding nearby treasure. The rod pulls in your hands, pointing toward the most valuable concentration of wealth within a number of squares determined by your Arcana check result. You can reduce the range if you choose.

Arcana Check Result Maximum Range
9 or lower 10 squares
10–19 20 squares
20–29 50 squares
30–39 100 squares
40 or higher 200 squares

When you finish performing the ritual, you can command the rod to detect only valuables within certain categories: metals, gems, other (art objects, maps, ritual components, and so on), or any combination of the above.

Focus: A gold rod you use in the performance of the ritual.
