Flaming Aura will generate an aura of flames which surrounds the caster and periodically lashes out at random creature targets. When used by creatures it will only attack player character targets. The spell fires every 10 seconds for 3 minutes. The random target has an SMR roll to determine whether or not they are damaged. On a failed roll, they will take a standard flare of heat damage. This spell has been reclassified as a buff rather than as a war spell, so it can be dispelled. The spell can also be cast in sanctuaries, but it will only deal damage if you are in a non-sanctuary room where magic is allowed.

This spell will show up under SPELL ACTIVE and become dormant while in town if the justice system is active.

This spell can commonly be found in granite triangles available through the treasure system. It is also available via scrolls found in the treasure system.

This spell can hit hidden players, who will be knocked out of hiding if they are hit.
