Temporal Beacon item description:
"My name is Drimex. I am a member of an elite Temporal Investigations Unit from your distant future that has run afoul of nefarious forces that are attempting to thwart our efforts to repair the effects of key temporal incursions. Contained within this device is a mission briefing for an assignment too dangerous for us to undertake ourselves, as our ranks have been compromised by our enemies. This beacon - and many like it - have been sent out into the time streams in hopes of recruiting brave and steadfast individuals willing to perform these missions on our behalf. Good luck. Tempus Fugit."The image fades out.
