A master of the fire learns to follow its flickering rhythms,
divining through them the thin tendrils of power which link all flames to
the Inferno. Such a one can send his thoughts through that burning network,
perceiving the world with far more than normal mortal senses.

By casting cinder scry with no argument, a scholar can discern the locations
of campfires and other flames. Certain powerful magics might restrict which
flames can be sensed, but most such flames will become evident to him. He
may then cast the spell again, supplying one of the fires as an argument
specified by number. If successful, his newly-extended senses will then
perceive that fire and its surroundings as though he were actually there,
including a sense of which adventurers might be in the general vicinity.
