West Bay Lighthouse
Owner: Government owned and operated, it is manned 24 hours a day by two spotters and a lighthouse keeper.
Reputation: Similarly to the South Bay Lighthouse, the West Bay Lighthouse has little in the way of reputation, except that it is the largest lighthouse in operations anywhere on the West Coast of North America. Like it's smaller, older cousin to the south of the city, it is also known for giving accurate visual aid and assisting sailors find a safe port at night or in storms.
Description of Lighthouse: Like the South tower, this Lighthouse is specially designed for durability. It is a 75' high white pillar shaped light house, with a red tiled conical roof, and modern fittings for the light. It is a reinforced merctite geodetic construction frame, supported by merctite beams that are loosely hinged to permit for gentle swaying with hurricane force winds or stronger, to reduce the impact of waves should they ever get to that height, or to permit for swaying from earthquakes. Translated - it is a very sturdy structure, that has been designed and built to withstand decades, perhaps centuries of service, with 1500 mega-damage.
Description of Services: Acts as a visual aid to vessels approaching the west bay of Wa-Daisho City, for vessels that are either not equipped with higher technology guidance, or vessels that have sustained serious enough damage to not have access to more high tech guidance. It's long reaching light provides a +10% to piloting and navigation rolls when within 45 miles of Wa-Daisho's West Bay. For those with advanced guidance, the west and south lighthouses both transmit vital navigation related data to vessels at a distance of 125 miles, that provides a bonus of +20% to both piloting and navigational skill rolls.
