[quote=Town Cryer #8] Gourd of Oil (one hand to use).To hit: Auto if in base contact.
Special rules:Will not catch light on its own but may be lit automatically if hit by any of the above methods.[/quote]
There are not many rules given in the article. The 'above methods' refers to fire arrows, fire brand (torch), fire bombs, etc. RationalLemming may have the same or expanded rules in his fire article which can be found on his skydrive (link in his sig). Actually if you use the BTB rules for starting fires the gourd of oil is kind of unnecessary since fires start MUCH easier in Cathay.
