Ignition and Initiation Methods

Whatever type of explosive you make, you're going to have to set it off somehow. These explosives and pyrotechnics can't be set off just by staring at them too hard (with a few exceptions) and I'm pretty sure that no one can set them off with mind power. You're going to need a trustable source of igntion.
