By tracing the seal of the golden flames over an object, the scholar can
imbue it with fiery energy to get unleashed later on command. Only items
with a natural affinity to flames can be so imbued; in particular, items
whose primary purpose is to give off light, such as a torch. By specifying
the 'explode' argument when casting the spell, the mage marks the object to
explode when commanded. By choosing 'smoke', he instead marks the object to
issue a dense cloud of smoke to blind and irritate anyone nearby. All of
his seals are triggered when the scholar casts this spell with no argument.

Every mage who learns this spell can maintain a single seal at any given
time; those who have achieved mastery of the spell may place another, and
those who have reached the pinnacle of their guild have grown proficient
enough to support yet another. Triggered seals will generally destroy the
object they are triggered on; in the case of explosions, the flying
fragments will make the seal particularly dangerous. Items which cannot be
destroyed will not be, but the resulting explosion will also be less severe.
