Meteorite Flare

Wondrous item, common

This 18-inch metal rod has a thin, beaded chain protruding from one end, while the other end is hollow and sealed with wax. The hollow end has a vaguely metallic scent tinged with a hint of combustible residue. Pulling the chain on a meteorite flare launches sparkling pea-sized object hundreds of feet into the air, glowing like a shooting star. Meteorite flares can be used as emergency signals or to send secret messages, though the signal is quite subtle unless an individual is deliberately looking for it. Identifying a meteorite flare for what it is requires a DC 15 Wisdom (Perception) check; creatures specifically watching for a meteorite flare gain advantage on this check. A single flare tube carries a total of 10 flares. A meteorite flare can’t be used as a weapon.
