OriginEdit

The Bal des Ardents (Ball of the Burning Men) was a masquerade ball held on 28 January 1393 in Paris at which Charles VI of France performed in a dance with five members of the French nobility. Four of the dancers were killed in a fire caused by a torch brought in by a spectator, Charles' brother Louis, Duke of Orléans. Charles and another of the dancers survived. The ball was one of a number of events intended to entertain the young king, who in the previous summer had suffered an attack of insanity.

EffectsEdit

When placed around a party of any kind, that mainly involves dancing, the torch apparently ignites. The torch increases the adrenaline in the dancers making them dance harder and faster, which makes the flames from the torch grow until the victims spontaneously combust.
