(TFT) Fire in Gameplay/Magic User tags

I did a little pondering on fire awhile back and it led to many things. What are some of the ways to make fire in gameplay?

Real                =  Torch, Molotail, etc
Magic-Illusion      =  [many people can see and feel it.]
Magic-Image         =  [many people can see it.]
Magic-TFT Fireball  =  Fire spell via fatigue
Magic-D&D Fireball  =  Fire spell via ether
Magic-Alchemy       =  Magic Fire via potions
Psionics-Perception =  [only target experiences it]
Psionics-Pyrokenisis=  Agitation of molecules to combust
Chemistry           =  Flourine and water, etc
Lasers              =  Light as heat
Vibratory           =  Sci Fi stuff
Projector           =  Holograms, etc
Miracles            =  Divine Intervention

On another bent, I thought that a Wizard's Guild Classification of Magic Users might brighten up some of the GM storylines. These aren't necessarily the "Magic" dictionary terms and its not meant to be a jobs list. (Note: This was written before the Wizard's Guild discussions.)

Magic User    - Generic Term
Magician      - ?
Warlock       - Military Arts magic user
Sorcerer      - Dark Arts specialist
Witch         - Small time solo "hedge" magic or Big Time Group magic
Wizard        - Book Learned magic user
Alchemist     - Deals with the elements & the magic that is
                inherent in physical matter  [The alchemist
                philosopher ultimately deals with Elementals
                for his Great Work]
Prestigitater - Illusion Magic
Rune master   - Glyph and Rune magic
Mage          - Deep knowledge of magic manipulation
Necromancer   - Death or Dead/Undead magic
Shaman        - Religions that uses "Earth" spirits for magic
Demonologist  - Uses demons to make magic
Satanist      - Religion uses corrupted witch coven to worship
                 demon who does magic
?             - Thieving Magic
?             - Healing magic
?             - Construction magic
?             - Detective magic
?             - Protection magic
?             - Persuasion/Sales magic
?             - Trap magic

These could be used as conversation clues: "He's strictly a warlock, has no idea how to unlock the door other than blasting it open." "Our Finder noted they have a Sorcerer and a Necromancer, but no Demonologist. Rugar our Shaman, should be able to handle the Necro, and the Mage will need some time to set up defense against the Sorcerer."
