3.3.3   FIRE

THIRD TRIAD

Holy Light
Level: 1
Aspect: Vigor
Duration: Scene
Forms: Divine, Hidden
Description
This force taps into the most basic attribute of fire, the ability to provide light. The angel can have the light stem from any source within sight. The spot designated begins to glow brightly, shedding rays on all the surroundings. If the source of light is moved, the radius of illumination moves with it. Since there is no apparent material reason for this glowing, witnessing the use of this force can be very unnerving for children of clay.

Optional Rules
The radius of light provided by this force is determined by the amount by which the user made his roll. A total of twenty would produce a small light with no more than a 5’ radius. For every point by which the roll exceeds 20, 10’ are added to the radius of the light. Thus, a roll of 25 would result in a light source with a 55’ radius. This only reflects the maximum potential of the light. The child of fire need not make it this bright.

Control Fire
Level: 1
Aspect: Power
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
With this force, a celestial can control the size of an existing blaze. The fire can be increased, decreased, or totally snuffed out. While the effect of using this force is immediate, its sustained condition is dependent upon it fuel supply. Hence, a fire in the desert that is expanded may quickly return to its original or even diminished state do to the lack of anything to burn.

Optional Rules
As a general rule, fires can only be enhanced to double their normal size. Most fires require the standard 20 as a target, but extremely large fires are more difficult to control. The Storyteller may wish to assign a difficulty of hard (25) for these blazes.

Holy Flame
Level: 2
Aspect: Vigor
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden
Description
Using this power, the angel can create a very small fire (the size of a candle flame) out of thin air. The flame can be made to appear anywhere within the celestial’s sight. Unless there is fuel to feed on, however, the fire will go out almost instantly. Though the fire can cause discomfort and a modicum of pain to material creatures, it does no real lasting damage.

Holy Fire
Level: 3
Aspect: Vigor
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden
Description
This is merely an enhanced version of holy flame. Now the angel can create a campfire size blaze. As with the previous force, the fire must have fuel to burn in order to remain existent. Unlike holy flame, though, this force has the potential to inflict substantial damage to material creatures. Only if the creature remains in the heart of the blaze for an extended period of time, does it have a chance of being killed.


SECOND TRIAD

Combustible
Level: 4
Aspect: Power
Duration: Story
Forms: Divine (material), Hidden
Description
The child of fire can make any material (including water) combustible. When touched by flame, It will ignite as if it was gasoline. The celestial must actually touch the item or substance to convey this force.

Optional Rules
Some mystical relics such as holy items may be more difficult to use this force on. Many will have a difficulty of hard (25), and some may even have a difficulty of very hard (30).

Holy Inferno
Level: 5
Aspect: Vigor
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden
Description
This is yet a further advancement of holy flame and holy fire. Here, though, the blaze created is of extraordinary destructive heat and size. It can engulf an entire building and render it to no more then cinders in only a few minutes. Any material creature caught within in its grasp would be lucky to survive, and even if they did, the damage inflicted would be staggering.

Divine Blaze
Level: 6
Aspect: Vigor
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden
Description
With this force, the angel can bring the effects of Holy Inferno upon a celestial. The fire created still effects the material world, but it has the added effect of scorching ethereal beings as well. Those angels who are in the subtle shape, however, will not feel the effects. While it is unlikely that this blaze will utterly destroy a celestial, it certainly can cause enough damage for that being to have to leave the material world for days of recovery.
