Fire is a destructive and elemental force of great importance in Avalon. There are myriad uses, as a weapon of attack, as a way to destroy defences, as a significant stage in many Farming and Labours processes or even as a means to light a locale or warm you in cold environments.
*Syntax: MAKE FIRE Use this command to make up a fire in your current location. Issuing the MAKE FIRE command will automatically scan your inventory and your surroundings for appropriate 'flammables' like firewood, to use for your fire. It is possible to make many fires in a single location and this can serve to purify it against certain intrusions.
*Syntax: LIGHT FIRE Lights a fire you have made, allowing its heat and light to radiate throughout the location. A fire's potency is defined partly by its fuel and partly by the size of the location in which it is made and it may take several fires, stoked well with fuel to overwhelm a location.
*Syntax: SURVEY Surveys your location for any fires present. Fire presence will be highlighted in red and underlined should the flames be of sufficient potency to consume the entire location.
