So why don't the books have any touch range elemental spells. At first I thought it was because they were indirect and they did not want to deal with the rules(# of dice rolls) of unarmed combat to hit, a reaction+unarmed to avoid, a spellcasting test to attack, the a reaction test to dodge, and then a damage resistance test.(I think that is right) Then I noticed the punch spell and its an indirect touch spell just no elemental damage.

The way I see it, with Flamethrower, you're creating a stream of flame heading away from your hand. You don't get hurt by it because it's moving away. When you cast fireball, you will get burned if you're in it's AoE.

Now what sort of effect do you have in mind for a touch fire spell? Your hand enveloped in flame?
