Sulphur and bat guano are the traditional material spell components for fireball, consistent across various editions of Dungeons & Dragons.
Sulphur and guano are two of the principal ingredients of gunpowder. If you ever get lost in a previous century before the invention of gunpowder, remember this simple recipe:
Sulphur is a bright yellow crystalline element, which can be found in areas around hot springs and volcanoes. Charcoal is the gritty black residue left after heating wood without burning it, to drive off all the water and volatile compounds. It's a good fuel for fires, and many pre-technological societies will produce it. Saltpetre is a white crystalline compound, potassium nitrate, which is most easily found as the crystalline deposits around and underneath aged piles of manure or guano.
Grind and mix these components together, and you have black powder, the simplest form of gunpowder. Be careful with it. Use it to conquer history.
