Thanks for the suggestions on clarifying my question. Once I get home, and am not on my iPhone, I will work on splitting it up. Would it be appropriate to, when I split up the questions, only put the question and link to here for all the details, or simply copy/paste the entire thing?

comment Looking for help on expanding my campaign concept while avoiding railroading
This would be my first time DMing (at all), so I am worried that introducing the rituals would somehow result in the players knowing the overarching plot right from the beginning. Specifically, the part where the rituals for fire (note, not magical rituals) emphasizing that fire is dangerous and extreme care must be taken when using it. Would making fire-based spells (fireball, etc) extremely hard to get a hold of be too heavy a hammer to use? (I have added the comments I just made to my original question. Thanks!)
