If fire is used, the wall can be burned through in 4 rounds.

A trigger condition is a code word or a word and touch combination that will instantly rouse the caster from the trance. While in this trance state, the character rests as if he were sleeping, recovering hits and Power Points at double the normal rate. Thus a 4 hour trance would work as if the character received 8 hours of sleep.
