Coaxing a Coal

Most firecraft fires start with a spark or coal which is placed in a "birds nest" or clump of dry combustible material. This dry sheet moss is packed enough to transfer heat while loose enough to receive oxygen. The coal is generally placed toward the bottom of the bundle so that the rising heat will help to facilitate the ignition of the material above.
