Fire Spells need to hire more minorities and women.
Actually, this has to do with the lack of diversity of effects and types of spells that fire spells seem to have. Whereas earth, cold, air, holy, etc. types in seem to have lots of different types of effects, and lots of ways they in theory are doing those effects (air, for instance, has wind, lightning, temperature changes, etc.), fire types often end up as variation of fireballs and flames causing damage in various ways. This thread is just for other types of stuff that fire associated spells in computer games could do and still make sense.
One thought I had, for example, was for fire to get associated with bright light and blindness types of effects. One computer game I saw had fire associated with confusion effects, though that could be harder to pull off in some cases.
