This topic discusses the command Flash.

From the action help:

   Flash is a miscellaneous power. It summons a ball of lightning that follows you, lighting your
   surroundings. 
   You can summon several balls at once but it is more difficult to control the more you have.

Duration is an approximation, it will vary based on how well the command is performed

Aspects of the command are

Aspect Name Description
control Controls how many balls can be safely maintained simultaneously.
implement Controls elements in performing the command .
light Controls much light each ball produces. Increasing the light increases the danger in loss of control.
cost Controls the gp requirements

Ranks for each aspect are:

control

Rank Description
1 Can maintain 1 ball with no fear of losing control.
2 Can maintain a second ball with only a small chance of losing control.
3 Can maintain 2 balls with no fear of losing control.
4 Can maintain a third ball with only a small chance of losing control.
5 Can maintain 3 balls with no fear of losing control.

Implement

Rank Description
1 Can not be performed inside, nor in combat.
2 Can be performed in combat.
3 Can be performed inside.
4 Duration is increased by 30%.
5 Duration is increased by 60%.
6 Duration is doubled.

Light What we could like, but can't do because we don't support non-int light levels and torches are 1.

Rank Description
1 Each ball is rather dim.
2 Each ball is 50% as effective as a basic torch.
3 Each ball is as good as a torch.
4 Each ball is 130% as effective as a basic torch.
5 Each ball is 160% as effective as a basic torch.
6 Each ball is twice as good as a torch.

What we will have to go with instead, and balance by making it hard to advance the ranks

Rank Description
1 Each ball is as good as a torch.
2 Each ball may be as good as 2 torches.
3 Each ball may be as good as 3 torches.

1 First ball costs 50 gp, subsequent cost 60.
2 First ball costs 45 gp, subsequent cost 55.
3 First ball costs 40 gp, subsequent cost 50.
4 First ball costs 35 gp, subsequent cost 45.
