The Platinum Portal is a system of portals originating beneath Wehnimer's Landing which connect it to the other realms. This system occurs only in the Platinum instance of GemStone IV.

The Nexus and Surrounding Portals

At the center of the Portals area is the Central Nexus. At each of the cardinal and ordinal directions from the nexus reside one of these portals connecting to a specific room in each respective realm.

North

The northern direction leads to the Solhaven/Vornavis Caravansary map/area.

Northeast

The northeastern direction leads to Icemule.

East

East leads to an immediately dangerous area in Pinefar.

Southeast

To the southeast, the portal to River's Rest can be found.

South

Teras Isle can be found when one uses the southern portal.

Southwest

The southwest portal leaves a person near the boulder in Ta'Illistim.

West

Another immediately dangerous area, the west portal takes people to Zul Logoth.

Northwest

Finally, to the northwest people can find the portal to the sewers of Ta'Vaalor.

Usage

One must first have had a portal ticket in one's hands at the time of portal entry from either side, to have successfully used a portal. If one did not have a portal ticket, they experienced the loss of all of their silver and gems, as well as being thrown onto the ground.

Pricing

To purchase a ticket one gives 10,000 silver to the ticket seller at the Central Nexus. There is, however, a discount price of 1,000 silver for a first time purchaser. Three months can be bought at a time. Notes will not be accepted.
