Mechanica buster sword
A buster sword with mechanical parts that with the right materials can ignite it. The sword can be charged kinetically as a movement action rubbing the mechanical plates with each other. When in this state the sword can be ignited for 1d4 rounds for every charge obtained. The charges are dispersed every 5 rounds and after the ignition, all the charges are used. Charging it again while ignited prolongues the rounds by 1d2 turns. The sword can't be ignited if the fuel is missing inside of the handle. You can insert or replace the fuel as a movement action. The maximum capacity is of 0.5 gallons increasing by 0.10 for every size difference. 0.1 gallons are automatically used every 5 turns it burns.
When ignited the sword inflicts an additional 6d6 increasing by one d6 every size larger than medium and vice versa subtracting 1d6 every size smaller as fire damage and it can inflict burn. It also can inflict burn if the blade is touched by the user while ignited.
Fuel can be anything that's ignitable and can be inserted in the handle.
