Lore of Fire

Aqshy, the Red Wind

The Lore of Fire is embodied by Aqshy, the red wind of magic.  Aqshy blows down from the north as a hot and searing wind.  Temporal heat acts as a conduit for Aqshy, and so spells involving Aqshy almost always involve fire.  It collects around open flames, volcanoes, and dry deserts scorched by the sun.  Aqshy is wielded by the by the order of Bright Wizards who have their power-base in the Bright College in Altdorf.  The Lore of Fire is extremely destructive, compromising nearly exclusively of "magical artillery".

Aqshy is the Æthyr's fusion of the experience and notion of passion, in its widest possible sense.  Fire in all its forms is the essence of Aqshy's Red Wind.  The pyromantic spells of Aqshy - known as the Lore of Fire - are among the most powerful and direct spells known to Human Magisters.  Bolts of flame, blades of fire and terrible infernos all lie within the power of a Wizard of Aqshy (usually known as a Bright Wizard).

Aqshy also holds dominion over the hot emotions:  brashness, courage, enthusiasm, dynamism, exuberance, vehemence, aggression, and excitement.  This aids the spells of the Bright Order, and also shapes their natures, for Aqshy sears and moulds the mind of its Wizards to reflect its own passionate, impulsive nature.  Bright Wizards may conjure up courage or a commanding presence with the aid of the Red Wind, but the patience and still wisdom of, say, the Light Order, is beyond them.

Aqshy tears across the world as a searing wind, felt only by those who are sensitive to magic.  It is attracted to passion, argument, excitement, and vehemence;  in fact, to any who are experiencing any kind of heat - emotional, physical, or both.  Empirical heat seems to draw the Wind of Aqshy, agitating it into an aggressive vortex.  Aqshy, then, could truly be described as the flame that warms the heart and light fires in our bellies.(1)

Casting Spark Cloud creates a burst of tiny sparks, much like a Cathayan firecracker.  It is also potentially quite deadly - around concentrations of blackpowder and other flammable materials, for instance, or near oil lamps.  Indeed, any area with flammable materials will likely become an unstoppable inferno within moments.  Any creatures with exposed fliesh suffer 1D4 - 2 (minimum 1) points of damage every round they are in the cloud.  Also, any flammable materials within the cloud have a 10% non-cumulative chance per round spend in the cloud of igniting.

Spell Resistance:  No
You detect Warpstone (also known as Wyrdstone) radiation in the surrounding area.  You see radioactive auras as a glowing green shimmer in the air that emanates from chunks of warpstone and objects that are in immediate contact or the nearby vicinity of warpstone;  the brighter and more intense the green, the more powerful the radioactivity.  This glow does not provide illumination or allow your to see in darkness, apart from being able to see the glow itself.  The spell can penetrate barriers, but 3 feet of dirt or wood, 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, or a thin sheet of lead blocks it - although radiation can seep into such barriers, causing them to become radioactive (and thus visible to the spell) in time.

Note:  the Pyromancer may keep the fire burning in any condition, even underwater, with this spell.  Feeding a flame is a free action.
Fiery Bolt:  A bolt of fire darts from the Pyromancer's fingertip and always hits its target, dealing 1D4 +1 points of fire damage per 2 levels of the caster (maximum of 5D4 + 5). 
Fiery Grasp:  The Pyromancer's hand is imbued with fire that can be used as a melee touch attack dealing 1D8 points of fire damage +1 point per caster level (maximum +20).

Area:  Creatures and objects within a 5-ft. radius burst.
Duration:  1 minute/level
Saving Throw:  None
Spell Resistance:  Yes
Subject is surrounded and outlined by pale glowing flames.  Outline subjects shed light as candles.  Outlined creatures do not benefit from the concealment normally provided by darkness (though a 2nd-level or higher magical darkness effect functions normally), Blur, Displacement, Invisibility, or similar effects.  The light is too dim to have any special effect on undead or dark-dwelling creatures vulnerable to light.  The flames do not cause any harm to the objects or creatures outlined.

See Alignment:  Pick an alignment; in your sight, creatures an items with that alignment emit a ghostly radiance.  PRG:UC

Target:  Target Creature
Duration:  Instantaneous
Saving Throw:  Reflex half
Spell Resistance:  No
Dipping their fingers into any fire, a Pyromancer may then fling it, creating an incendiary stream of blazing heat.  While it will not burn for long without fuel (just long enough to land on something), the heat is surprisingly great, fed as it is by sorcerous will.  When hurling the fiery bolt, the Pyromancer must succeed at a ranged touch attack roll to hit.  The bolt deals 2D4 + 2 points of fire damage + (1D4+2) points of damage for every 2 levels beyond 3rd (maximum 10D4 + 20).

Duration:  7 rounds
Saving Throw:  Will negates (object)
Spell Resistance:  Yes (object)
Heat Metal makes metal extremely warm.  Unattended, nonmagical metal gets no saving throw.  Magical metal is allowed a saving throw against the spell.  An item in a creature's possession uses the creature's saving throw bonus unless its own is higher.
A creature takes fire damage if its equipment is heated.  It takes full damage if its armor is affected or if it is holding, touching, wearing, or carrying metal weighing one-fifth of its weight.  The creature takes minimum damage (1 point or 2 points (see table) if it's not wearing metal armor and the metal that it's carrying weighs less than one-fifth of it's weight.
On the first round of the spell, the metal becomes warm and uncomfortable to touch but deals no damage.  The same effect also occurs on the last round of the spell's duration.  During the second (and also the next to last) round, intense heat causes pain and damage.  In the third, fourth, and fifth rounds, the metal is searing hot, causing more damage, as shown on the table below.
Any cold intense enough to damage the creature negates fire damage from the spell (and vice versa) on a point-for-point basis.  If cast underwater, Heat Metal deals half damage and boils the surrounding water.
Heat Metal counters and dispels Chill Metal.

Casting Time:  1 round
Range:  Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Effect:  See text
Duration:  See text
Saving Throw:  None
Spell Resistance:  Yes
The Pyromancer may, as a standard action, make a Spellcraft check (DC 13, adding his bonus).  If successful he suffers 1D2 hit points of damage to create a 10 ft. by 10 ft. cloud of living "fireflies" from a fire at least 5 ft. by 5 ft. in size.  The hit points suffered when creating the fireflies may not be healed until the fireflies are killed by immersion in water or dispelled by their creator, which can be done as a free action.
These creatures are controlled by their creator and resemble burning embers of flame floating on the wind.  They last for 1 minute and do not need to be maintained by the Feed spell, nor do they require any combustible material as fuel.  After one minute, the Pyromancer may take an additional 1D2 hit points of damage to extend the life of the cloud for another minute.  The Pyromancer may continue extending the life of the cloude as long as he chooses, suffering an additional 1D2 hit points of damage for every extra minute.  Any creature caught in the cloud suffers 1D4 hit points of damage every round unless wearing heavy clothing or some other sort of protection (at least light armour).  The fireflies can move up to 10 ft. per turn.  A Pyromancer can have one cloud of fireflies in existence starting at 12th level, two at 14th level, three at 15th level, four at 16th level, and five at 17th level.

Casting Time:  1 standard action
Range:  Touch
Targets:  Up to four acorns or up to eight holly berries
Duration:  10 min./level or until used
Saving Throw:  None or Reflex half; See text
Spell Resistance:  No
Depending on the version of Fire Seeds you choose, you turn acorns into splash weapons that you or another character can throw, or you turn holly berries into bombs that you can detonate on command.
Acorn Grenades:  As many as four acorns turn into special thrown splash weapons.  An acorn grenade has a range increment of 20 feet.  A ranged touch attack roll is required to strike the intended target.  Together, the acorns are capable of dealing 1D4 points of fire damage per caster level (maximum 20D4) divided among the acorns as you wish.  No acorn can deal more than 10D4 points of damage.
Each acorn grenade explodes upon striking any hard surface.  In addition to its regular fire damage, all creatures adjacent to the explosion take 1 point of fire damage per die of explosion.  This explosion of fire ignites combustible materials adjacent to target.
Holly Berry Bombs:  You turn as many as eight holly berries into special bombs.  The holly berries are usually placed by hand, since they are too light ot make effective thrown weapons (they can be tossed only 5 feet).  If you are within 200 feet and speak a word of command, each berry instantly bursts into flame, causing 1D8 points of fire damage + 1 point per caster level to every creature in a 5-foot-radius burst and igniting any combustible materials within 5 feet.  A creature in the area that makes a successful Reflex saving throw takes only half damage.
Flame Barrier:  Creates a spinning disk of blades made of flame.

An immobile, vertical curtain of whirling blades shaped of pure flame springs into existence.  Any creature passing through the wall takes 1D6 points of fire damage per caster level (maximum 15D6), with a Reflex save for half damage.
If you evoke the barrier so that it appears where creatures are, each creature takes damage as if passing through the wall.  Each such creature can avoid the wall (ending up on the side of its choice) and thus take no damage by making a successful Reflex save.

Casting Time:  1 round
Range:  Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Effect:  See text
Duration:  See text
Saving Throw:  None
Spell Resistance:  Yes
The Pyromancer may, as a standard action, make a Spellcraft check (DC 15).  If successful, he suffers 1D4 hit points of damage and creates a serpent of fire from a 5 ft. by 10 ft. or bigger fire.  The hit points suffered when creating the serpent may not be healed until the serpent is destroyed by immersion in water, or dispelled by its creator, which can be done as a free action.
The creature can be controlled by its creator without a die roll.  The serpent's size is 5 ft. by 10 ft., and it can only be harmed by immersion in water (which causes it to be instantly destroyed) and by water-based magic.  The serpent moves at a rate of 20 ft. per round.  The Pyromancer may attack with the serpent by making a melee touch attack with his flame serpent rating (1 at 16th level, 2 at 17th level, 3 at 18th level, 4 at 19th level and 5 at 20th level) as a bonus.  If the serpent hits, it deals damage equal to a 1D4 x its creator's flame serpent rating.
On every subsequent hit, the serpent's damage is reduced by 1D4.  This continues untilt the serpent can deliver no more damage, at which point it is a tiny wisp of flame that crawls away to recuperate (requiring an open flame, which will restore it at the rate of 1D4 damage per round of immersion, up to its original maximum).  A Pyromancer can maintain a number of flame serpents equal to his flame serpent rating.

Components:  V, S
Casting Time:  1 round
Range:  Long (400 ft. + 50 ft./level)
Area:  Four 10 ft. cubes per level
Duration:  1 round per level
Saving Throw:  Reflex half
Spell Resistance:  No
The Pyromancer may, as a standard action, make a Spellcraft check (DC 22).  If successful he suffers 3D6 hit points of damage to create an enormous storm of fire and brimston that rains down upon his enemies (made from a fire of at least 50 ft. by 50 ft.).  The damage suffered may not be healed until the spell's duration ends.  The Pyromancer may voluntarily end the spell at any time.
If the first Spellcraft check is successful, the Pyromancer immediately makes another Spellcraft check to determine damage.  The DC for the check is 10 + 1 per 1D10 points of damage to be dealt (maximum 20D10).  If it succeeds, fire and brimstone rain down upon the spell's area of effect, dealing the specified damage to everything within the area each round.  However, if the check is unsuccessful, the spell's full damage (the amount of damage multiplied by the number of rounds of the spell's maximum duration) is inflicted upon the Pyromancer, with no saving throw allowed.  For instance, if the second check fails and the Pyromancer intended to deal 20D10 points of damage, and he is a level 10 Bright Wizard, he would immediately suffer 20D10 points of damage.
Any creatures slain by this spell are reduced to fine white ash.  This spell only harms living matter; inanimate matter is unaffected by Fiery Doom.  In the case of a failed second Spellcraft check, the Pyromancer takes the requisite damage and, if the injury proves fatal, explodes in a torrent of flame.
Firebird:  Creates a Huge bird out of living flame which obeys your commands.(3e)
Evocation [Creation][Fire]
Components:  V, S
Casting Time:  1 minute
Range:  Close (25 ft. + 2 ft./level)
Effect:  See text
Duration:  24 hours (or until dispelled; see text)
Saving Throw:  None
Spell Resistance:  No
The Pyromancer may, as a standard action, make a Spellcraft check (DC 18).  If successful he suffers 3D6 hit points of damage to create an enormous and strangely beautiful bird made of flames from a fire of at least 20 ft. by 20 ft.  The damage suffered when creating the firebird may not be healed until the bird is destroyed by immersion in water or dispelled by its creator, which is a free action.
The firebird's wingspan is approximately 40 ft. (but for game purposes is placed on a 20 ft. by 20 ft. base) and has a movement of 60 ft. when moving (flying).  It can be controlled by its creator without a die roll.  The bird cannot be harmed except by immersion in water (which causes it to be dispersed) or by water-based magic.  Pyromancers may use the firdebird as a steed that can carry a total of six people up to 250 miles per day.  The firebird's touch does not burn, but it can explode in a huge ball of fire (5D6 concussion damage and 5D6 fire damage to all creatures within 10 ft. of the firebird) if its creator wishes.  This is done as an attack action for the firebird; doing so causes it to extinguish itself utterly.  The firebird may not attack or take any actions other than moving, carrying passengers or exploding.
