Although I understand that Ignite is the spell designed for such things, I was wondering whether or not people would allow a (Force 1) Flamethrower spell to act as a 'poor man's' Ignite or if even 1P Fire Damage would be more then enough to burn the entire cig/cigar/ect to ash as well as likely burning off the foolish Mage's facial hair. (Personally I lean towards the latter, but was wondering what other people would do in their games.)

*Edit*

However, I do get slightly conflicted when I think about the extra Drain that the Mage would have to resist from using Flamethrower over Ignite.

*Edit 2.0*

Also on a related note, what about other non-combat uses for Combat Spells? Would a (Force 1) Lightingbolt be able to jump-start a truck, ect?
