Since the dawn of time, man has feared the darkness. Modern
technology has beaten back the darknes, but sometimes the cost
can be pretty high for those on a budget. Genesis Armaments
brings back a 20th century solution -- the flare -- and updates
it for 21st century use. For the finest in armaments -- go with
the first word -- Genesis.

Flares illuminate all within a 20" radius for 5 seconds, reducing the night combat penalty from -3 to -1. They do not have to be fired straight up; the center of illumination can be placed anywhere within 15" of the firing position. Flares come in a variety of colors.
