The Signal Fire is a Gondor settlement building which allows access to special troops from the fiefdoms of Minas Tirith. These beacons were scattered all throughout the White Mountains and were lit when Gondor required aid.
Unit Production Edit
Although this building can't produce units at will, it will periodically summon troops from the fiefdoms. These units have no cost but still take up command points.

The Strategy for lighting the beacons of Gondor should be exactly the same as in the books - you want to have your reinforcements ready before your enemies are surrounding you busying themselves burning your Fortress down. Build beacons and recruit Imrahil of Dol Amroth almost as a defensive measure more than anything else. If you're ready to advance with them offensively that's great, but you need to have your Fortress secure at all times; they are no Army of the Dead - they can't save you if you're already being overrun.
