|Brief Description:||When ley lines brings you to this item you arrive dissipated.|
A ley line beacon is a permanent magic encampment item. When a character casts the ley lines spell and their destination for that spell is an encampment with a ley line beacon they arrive at the encampment under the effects of dissipate.
Dissipate is an effect that allows a character to escape from a dangerous situation by becoming invisible and intangible.
After being affected by dissipate a character they must raise a blue flag over their head and then call "dissipate". This effect does not begin until the flag is held overhead. The blue flag must be in an empty hand and can't be tied to anything. For up to 10 minutes maximum, as long as the blue flag is held up the character is dissipated. While dissipated the character can't move but others no longer "know where they are" (and should role-play accordingly). When the player lowers the blue flag the spell is voluntarily dispelled. Characters can always voluntarily dispel a dissipate effect as long as it was not caused by a banish call. A character that is dissipated can only be dispelled by a character who has a special ability allowing them to see someone who is affected by dissipate.
For safety reasons you should never dissipate while in front of a group of people who are running, or where you could otherwise be a trip or collision hazard. If you dissipate in such a situation it is ok to leave a marker such as a tag bag to indicate where you were and to step aside.
When a character first learns the ley lines spell they must select a fixed physical location (and perform a small ceremony if desired) to bind a tiny portion of their spark to it. From then on the character can cast ley lines to magically travel back to that location along the ley lines of Novitas. The location chosen may be changed between events or with game master permission during an event.
Upon completion of the incant to cast this spell the caster is instantly removed from the physical world. Hold up a blue flag and proceed back to your bound location as directly as possible. Only you get transported. Other players cannot be brought with you or instead of you. When a player benefits from ley lines, they drop any sparks they were holding.
