Produce flame was an evocation spell used by druids and clerics that created flames in the caster's hands.[2][3][6] An arcane version of the spell existed, but it was only accessible to fire elementalists and witches, and required much more magical power.[5]


When cast, flames appeared in the caster's hand, which he could hurl or use to touch their foes. The bright flames, which illuminated out to twenty feet as torches do, appeared in the caster's hand and harmed neither him nor his equipment.[3]

The spell did not function underwater, for obvious reasons.[5]
