You create a dimensional pattern that can guide effects with the teleport descriptor. To benefit from a teleport beacon, the caster of a teleport spell must have studied the beacon first hand for ten minutes.

Any spell with the teleport descriptor that can teleport far enough to reach the teleport beacon can choose to arrive in the teleport beacon's area. Such a teleport always arrives safely and ignores any arrival location limits of the spell, such as the mishap chance of teleport or the distance from the target of plane shift.

Teleport beacon is vulnerable to effects that disrupt teleportation effects; it automatically fails if cast in a situation where teleport spells risk failure or are otherwise hampered.

The material component of the spell is one pound of ground silver (worth 5 gp). By expending 1,000 pounds of silver (worth 5,000 gp) the spell gains a permanent duration. This requires an arrangement of physical objects in specific angles, this can be simple planks or stones, but obelisks or engraving is more permanent. If the arrangement is damaged or changed, the teleport beacon won't work until the pattern is restored.

An alternate use of teleport beacon is to teleport all creatures inside one teleport beacon to another teleport beacon anywhere on the same plane the caster has studied. This use has an instantaneous effect and cannot be made permanent.
