The mage must remain in the area, and must maintain the effect, although this does not require them to speak.

The player should, however, role-play maintaining the effect in some fashion. As soon as the mage leaves the area of stops maintaining the effect, it fades. While imbuing an area, a mage may only cast Fire-based spells, or metamagic. If a second imbue area is cast the first disappears.
