Geography and Resources
Like all cities on Canticle, Beacon is made of many smaller ships that can link together to be steered as one. The layout of the city changes as ships separate and recombine in different arrangements, but generally the farther out from the center one goes, the smaller the ships get. The largest ship containing the Chorus is always at the center.
The Greater Good also elect a Lodestar, the Chief Navigator.
Beacon was a Union between a smaller community and a number of people from Union. For most of its history it flew in an unknown corridor. At an unknown time the Cinder King conquered it and assigned a few people along with some Charred to rule it.
After some time the people decided to rebel against the Cinder King.
