I'm looking for a nice, elegant synonym for "kickstart something/start something up/get something going" for a story. The context is medieval/fantasy so I can't use something that sounds too modern, like "press 'ON' " or something like that. Does anyone have any ideas?
A friend suggested "ignite" and while it sounds nice, I am afraid it sounds too much like setting something on fire. Is it possible to say, for example, "to ignite a project", or does that just sound like the project's going to burn?
The thing that needs to be started up in my story is a magical dimension, by the way. Can you "ignite" a dimension or does it just sound weird?
Thanks for the suggestions! Haven't decided yet which word to use but you've given me some ideas.
