  • Portal Closure: A pulse of intense blue light overwhelms the starlit doorway. When the light recedes, the doorway is simply no longer there.

But viewed head-on, its glowing blue frame reveals a seemingly endless universe of starlit blackness, silent, unwavering, and oddly peaceful. With its sharp lines and precise angles, the starlit doorway looks less like a magical portal than a threshold built through reality itself.

A ferocious heat bleeds from the pulsing heart of the mirage, almost as if it were alive with magical purpose.

  • Portal Closure: The powerful vortex picks up speed as it shrinks and narrows, quickly spinning into nothingness.

  • Portal Description: The ice arch looks like it could have grown naturally within the depths of an arctic cave. Its walls are both lovely to behold as well as seemingly dangerous, glittering and glassy in the light but jagged-edged and sharp to the touch. A cold and steady haze spills from the arch, obscuring what lies on the other side of its icy walls.

Tongues of lightning lash from the ether and whip about its face erratically, crackling with a menacing intensity.

  • Portal Closure: A crackling jolt of energy slowly consumes the ring of essence, tracing its entire length until vanishing in a clap of sparks.
  • Portal Description: The ring of essence has the sheen of polished onyx, but flows like running water. Its glossy surface churns back down and on itself like a river with no beginning or end. Between its borders, all is darkness. Nothing can be seen or heard within the inky gloom, except a dull and insistent thrumming.
#139 Familiar Gate (930) Spinning sigil
