Tales of the Shattered Earth
The torchlit beacon is a series of 9 magical torches that mark the Calendar year. Every culture on the planet uses the beacon as the center of their settlements. From human cities to the dirtiest Goblin hovel. It is rumored that there are creatures that live below the earth that use a blasphemous version of the beacon, but as yet these rumors have been unsubstantiated, and even the Under-dwelling Drow have been known to use the same circular pattern and timing, though their torches are said to be made of obsidian and dark magic.
