Castaway’s Flare

Wondrous item, uncommon

This small metallic globe, when activated, shoots up 1,000 feet into the air and glows brightly for 1 hour. It is visible from 25 miles away. At the end of the hour, the light slowly fades as the globe gently falls to the ground. A castaway’s flare can be reused after the next dawn so long as it was submerged in sea-water the entire time between its last use and the next dawn. If the flare is activated inside, it stops when it reaches the ceiling. The light from the flare illuminates as bright light within 30 ft. and dim light within 60 ft.
