Beacons are equipment used by the Covenant in the extraction of the Helium-3. Fifty stories tall and as wide as five city blocks, a Beacon is shaped like a perfectly symmetrical beehive floating atop four antigravity "stilts", tended by Yanme'e workers. The term "Beacon" is a UNSC designation - whatever the Covenant know the equipment as is unknown. Helium-3 was trapped in a second mantle formed over the original object during the spallation-heavy terraforming process of UNSC colonies. During the Human-Covenant War, the Covenant would set up Beacons on conquered UNSC worlds to extract and refine this helium-3, converting it into pure energy for transmission to nearby battlegroups. One such Beacon was located on Verge in 2552, used to power Covenant warships blockading Tribute, destroyed soon after by Team Black.[1]

The Beacon Network

The Beacon Network is a series of 14 beacons along the Wilderness and Morytania borders to warn of possible threats to the kingdoms of Asgarnia and Misthalin.

Contents

Introduction

King Roald III ordered the creation of the network of beacons from the Salve all the way west, along the Wilderness Ditch and north to the edge of the Wilderness. Each beacon can burn 20 logs at a time, and can be refreshed with an additional 5 logs (all of the same type).

In times of peace, testing can be done with any log and the fire burns its natural colour. In times of danger the Beacon Keepers have Gnomish firelighters to colour the fires different colours to indicate different threats.

  • Normal flame is a test run of the beacons.
  • Green signals a potential emergency.
  • Red means full-scale emergency.

(The last two beacon colours are discovered during Defender of Varrock).

An unlit beacon.

Players testing the beacons are rewarded for their efforts. See All Fired Up and All Fired Up (minigame) for details on play and rewards.

The Beacons

A beacon is indicated by the Fired Up Beacon icon (File:Beacon minimap.png) on the world map and minimap. Firemaking levels 43-92 are required to light the beacons.

To see which beacons are lit, you can right-click the NPC guarding the beacon and select 'Information.' If you have a lit beacon, it will look like this: File:Lit_Beacon.png

The flame means it is lit, while the blue dots mean that they have either died or have not yet been lit. You can give the Beacon guards Macaw pouches (Summoning) in order to have further visibility on the Information map.

Note: You can preload the beacons (the logs will stay there until you light them). It is highly advised that you do this.

Warning! Some beacons are in the Wilderness and players should consider taking precautions in case Revenants attack.

Walkthrough

Trivia

  • The beacon network is a possible reference to the Great Wall of China because the guard towers on the wall were used similarly, aiding in relaying messages over long distances relatively quickly.
  • A similar beacon system is used in J.R.R. Tolkien's, 'The Lord of the Rings', to warn of danger.
  • The beacon network is also very similar to the Martello Towers of Ireland. These towers would have a beacon on the roofs to warn the nearest tower of incoming attacks.

Starwars

(Redirected to Flare stick article)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Flare sticks, also known as ground flares, were small pyrotechnic devices used for illumination and signalling. Unscrewing a flare stick would activate the chemicals stored within. The reaction of those chemicals resulted in the emanation of a bright glow from the flare stick. A flare stick could be deactivated and saved for later use by screwing the two ends back together.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Beacon is a Mini-Con from the Energon portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.
I smell beacon!!!

Beacon is one of the many power-enhancing Mini-Cons who help the Autobots search the galaxy for raw Energon deposits. Teamed with Lens and Quantum, the trio can form the powerful Blizzard Saber weapon.

Energon

  • Beacon (Micron Booster, 2004)
    • Booster ID number: 6
Beacon beacon beacon beacon beacon!
Beacon is a redeco of the Energon Saber Mini-Con Wreckage, transforming into a Cybertronic starship, as well as forming the tip of the Blizzard Saber sword. He was sold as part of the second Micron Booster assortment in Japan, in individual, blind-packed boxes so you did not know which Mini-Con you got until you opened the box and opaque black plastic bag inside.
The same mold is also used by Cybertron Sunstorm. The original version of the mold is used by Jackknife and Runway.


Trivia

  • Like most of the Micron Boosters, Beacon's name is based on a word similar to the name of his original mold; in Japan, Wreckage is known as "Laser".
