Though its designs are many and varied, a Fire Thrower always consists of an airtight copper-lined barrel and a fluid chamber filled with a sticky alchemical sludge - normally a mixture of sulphurous compounds, black powder and combustible oils.[1a]

When triggered, a fire thrower sets loose a burst of these noxious chemicals, which immediately set light upon contact with the air, incinerating anyone unfortunate enough to be caught in the blast.[1a]
