Description[edit | edit source]

Allows us to send scouts to search the wilderness for goods and survivors and bring them to our city. Lookouts will also spot incoming groups of people.

The Beacon is a strange contraption which is best described as a tethered hot air balloon with a light beacon and lookout post attached underneath it. It functions both as a lookout post and a lighthouse by surveying the surrounding land, and allows the Captain to send out Scouts to search the wilderness for goods and survivors, and bring them to our City by the Beacon’s guiding light. Lookouts will also spot incoming groups of people and bad weather.
