Hmmm. How? Should be something like Greater Create Energy (6) + Damage, 3d External Burning (Side Effect, Stunning, +60%; Surge, Arcing, +100%) [32]. 38x3. 114 energy

This is a Greater effect for sure. I just wrote up a spell to do something like this recently but I can't remember who I did it for. It was in an email I remember that for sure. I'll look and see if I can find it. It's not that cheap though.

mostly one that delt damage, was an "essential lifebane" fire. Cause in fire that can't be easily put out and spread over a target making more lifebane fire. However. It wouldn't burn anything other than the person hit with the missile spell. It was long and complicated which made sense. I came to some 110energy or so. But I want another effect. But I don't know where to start. I want to treat things as though they were one flammability class higher. How would I model that? Any ideas?
Add Incendiary. If you want to add multiple Incendiary levels just add Cosmic. That's covered in GURPS Power-Ups 4.
