I agree with buddly to some degree, a little bit of damage there and then can actually help to the agony that witches or people standing on fire would feel.

Most witch burnings that have happened in the past, had a DM witness to the event and the DM usually takes care of the fire damage and visual effects.  It seems more appropriate for a DM to handle such VFX and damage imo for what is probably a 'perma' event, which also helps allay any ooc complaints about said event which are likely to result.  Having a DM witness to the rp and the actions, and to perhaps assist with visuals/damage and so on, just seems more appropriate than a script change that could easily be used in ways unintended (much like the traps have been lately).

I could just run into the room and punch you in the balls; sure, that's scary. That's entertainment. But it isn't horror...
