|Reworded patch message slightly, and set spell power to 0.|
|Trying to be funny won't get you any good: it's still a SUMMONING spell. Boo!|

It inherently means something completely different from current other summoning spells to summon this specific kind of non-instant-kill time bomb, and I appreciate it for trying summoning spells that avoid current summoning problems of being designed around spamming them. However, I'm not sure about the overlap with AM's book, the overall power of a summon that won't work with the other spells in the book, etc. The choice of kobold _is_ arbitrary and silly, if a specific and understandable form of balance, but I can't think of much else that would work better (for example, a fire bat would make nice thematic sense, but battyness and evasion would work against the spell's effect rather than for it).
I'd give this spell much further consideration well before I'd put it in.
|It seems a lot like a conjuration in that it creates an explosion away from you without requiring further actions after casting.|
The overlap with inner flame is sort of disappointing, yes. However, I think it a little less fiddly since you can control where the thing goes.
Hmm, perhaps a long-lasting summon that enchants everything you summon afterwards with inner flame? Might want to make it a bit beefier in that case, since you have a reason to keep it around.
|Resolving this since the now-implemented Summon Guardian Golem seems like a similar concept that might work better.|
