they sell various shisha heaters online, i assume if your savy in the electronic field you could make one in a bind with something that uses a powerful heating elemnt like a toaster or hair dryer, however unless you know exspicitly what your doing i recommened you forget the idea because of how crazy dangerous it is to do such things. but that owuld be it.

Well you don;t actually burn it...so "lighting" is probably the wrong word.

I would trip out the heating element from your toaster and coil it around your bowl and try that.

Otherwise...there is always the logical option of buying more coals.

Or you can also use embers from natural wood (no stains, dyes, treatments, etc)...don't recommend...they dont last very long.

another idea ive used (yes ive done the toaster and hair dryer before stirctly to see if it can be done) you can use the above stated, if you have a blow torch and alot of fuel you can use a legth of steel or another high temp metal and put it on your bowl and keep it red hot or close to it, again this was also done jsut to see if it worked, and it did but is insanely ineffeict, not at all close to cost effective.

Red Dragons are far too evil and selfish to want to help him, they would probably just kill him and take the shiny hookah for their treasure hoard.

If he can somehow find the King of Fire Giants they are likely to have 1-2 Red Dragons and 1d8 Hellhounds with them. Perhaps doing a favor for them will grant you a couple hours of time with one of their pets. That is of course if he isnt killed by the giants.

This is all avoided by the use of a Wish spell.
