The desire to live into
old age grips you as you near completion of this spell. The feeling passes as
you designate the area of the spell, where the flames there flicker for a moment
as if a gust of wind had hit them.

This spell lends fuel to
existing fires within the spell’s area, allowing them to burn off the intangible
power of passion as much as from physical substance. Because these fires consume
less of the physical fuel that sustain them, they burn for twice as long without
losing any of their intensity, but their illumination radius is halved.

In addition, an affected
fire is much harder to extinguish. It takes twice as long to put out a fire
that is under the effect of this spell, and if a roll is required (such as the
Reflex save required to extinguish flames if a creature is on fire), two successful
rolls over 2 rounds are required to successfully put out the fire. If one such
roll fails, the creature must begin trying to extinguish the flames again as
if it had never succeeded on the first roll.

Magical fire used against
a target in this spell’s area, such as from a produce
flame
or fireball spell, does not burn
as effectively, and fire damage from such sources is reduced by 1 point per
die.

Slow burn counters or dispels
the effect of raging flame.

Arcane Material Component: An oil-filled hourglass.
