An Ordinary Torch?
A normal-looking wooden torch. It is slightly cool, and maybe a little rotted, but it should light fine.
What? It won’t? Well, it should...
Magical Properties of a Never-Burning Torch
The Never-Burning Torch is a wonderful tool for anyone who needs to stick their hand in a fire. The wooden stick is absolutely immune to heat and flame, and grants this protection to almost everything within one foot of it.
The only thing that it does not grant this amazing protection to is actual normal wood. That will burn as usual.
Uses for a Never-Burning Torch
If ever you need to punch something on fire, simply clench it in your fist and punch away! You won’t even singe your knuckle hairs.
If you fear the scalding power of hot coffee, all you need to do is stick a Never-Burning Torch in your belt. Feel free to challenge your friends to throw boiling water at your crotch.
Get a bunch of these, cover yourself in them, and walk unafraid into that portal to the Land of Elemental Fire. I hope it works on Elemental Fire… We haven’t tested that yet.
How can I get a Never-Burning Torch?
I would like to say it’s easy, but it’s really not. Involved are many complicated chants and prayers (most ending with the unpronounceable names of elder gods), a large supple of fresh mortal souls (no more than 200 years old), and signing a Oath of Eternal Service with a major demon lord.
But, hey, fire immunity sounds good to me.
