  A firestarter is a rare and much-feared psychic whose abilities essentially
consist of making things burn using his mind.  A deadly talent under the best
of circumstances, the ability has been known to escape its master's control
to tragic effect.
  The first significant operation for a firestarter is to induce combustion in
an opponent's belongings, causing flammable materials to ignite, as well as
causing any truly volatile materials to detonate.  More capable firestarters
can improve on this ability to the point of actually create a sheet of flame
to immolate an opponent, and the most skilled (and feared) can literally cause
a victim's blood to boil in his veins.  Also, alarmingly, even lesser talents
have been known to manifest these higher abilities when in great danger.
  Any firestarter can also cause minor scorching by bringing wisps of flame
briefly into existence around someone, though this causes practically no real
damage and is more of a parlor trick or threat than anything else.
  Your facility with all the powers of a firestarter is determined by your
willpower, your perception, and your skill in the psionic discipline of
  To induce combustion in an opponent's belongings, visualize heat waves
rising from him.  To envelop him in a wreath of fire, visualize flames around
him.  To boil his blood, visualize the sun inside him.  To scorch someone,
visualize wisps of flame around them.  In each case you may refer to simply
"my opponent" to target your current enemy.
