Thermite isn't vegetable matter, but there's gotta be something that's highly explosive that would qualify. Any ideas?

    All petroleum products are technically vegetable matter.

    Oh, it's not that I can't burn things down, it's just I wanted a more efficient way of doing it than covering things with fifty-odd pounds of oil, which I'd have to lug around everywhere. Using PMI to create large amounts of it is much easier, so now I'm really looking for ways to create reliable explosions rather than just fire.

    You could also investigate ways of making Greek Fire. That'll really mess up someone's day.
    If something doesn't work, hit it.
    If it still doesn't work, hit it harder.

    PMI seems like it would be perfectly capable of creating it in aerosol form, which is explosive. Also, ethanol and methanol are both plant products, and are just as viable as plant based oils - plus, they can burn very quickly.

    In several threads I've talked about ways to make FAEs out of Oil and a few low-level Wizard spells. It's quite entertaining.

    Alternatively, distilled pine resin. No chemistry required, and has a lower autoignition temperature (but a higher flash point, so vaporisation is harder). Alternatively, if trace byproducts are kosher, try apple gas or rocket fuel.

    You'll need a Wizard of at least 7th-level, a metric ton (literally or figuratively) of oil and some big guy with Flight, maybe a dragon or similar. Optimally, the spells you'll want are Forcewave, Energy Resistance, Body of the Sun and a method of flight. You'll need to put Body of the Sun on a Contingency, triggered off your Forcewave cast.

    Step 0: Have Energy Resistance and your method of flight going, and the Body of the Sun contingency up.
    Step 1: Ready an action to cast Forcewave when the falling oil gets just past you.
    Step 2: Get your big guy to fly above you, holding the oil. Optimally you should use a Bag of Holding that you just invert, or even better use Telekinesis to shape it into a sphere, but if pressed you could just make a sling and drop it for less effectiveness.
    Step 3: Drop the oil. The oil falls past you in an approximately spherical formation, and your readied Forcewave goes off right before it passes you. The Forcewave disperses the oil in a teardrop shape (due to air resistance) and then the Body of the Sun contingency goes off. The oil ignites sequentially outwards from the point of the teardrop at you.
    Step 4: ?????
    Step 5: You have just delivered history's first intentional thermobaric explosion. You get all the profit.

    I'd say I should start a signature now, though I should keep from being too self-aggrandizing in it. Mind being its first resident?

    Then what's stopping you?
    I see no reason why if I can put up such a braggadocio quote that yours should not fit.
