1st Round: Presence or absence of gold.

2nd Round: Number of different accumulations of gold, and relative size of each. An accumulation is a single pile of gold or golden objects, no matter how large. A pile of gold is a collection of gold objects that all touch each other.

3rd Round: Approximate value and location of each pile of gold. The approximate value is for the whole pile, not for individual objects within it. Getting the approximate value requires a successful Appraise check (DC 15).

Each round, you can turn to detect sources of gold in a new area. The spell can penetrate barriers more easily than other detection spells, since it is designed to find treasure hidden in vaults. The spell is blocked by 3 feet of stone, earth, wood, or dirt, or 1 foot of any metal. If blocked, the caster knows that the spell was blocked, but not by what.
