FB: “If, when doing your business, you look down and see a yellowish-orange hue and feel a distinct burning sensation, GUILDED AGE recommends you consult your physician.”

Conjuring a fireball in any community is probably a faux pas, but the wood elves are more flammable than the average race.

I think it’s a little ambiguous here whether E-Merl’s long-smoldering rage has allowed him to cast a fireball without using his talisman, or if he just unconsciously rubbed it as that rage bubbled up. Either way, he has now confirmed that he is not someone the team can rely on for this mission. The mercy of this moment is that it’s happened in a way that he himself has realized that, and without causing any harm to anyone else.
