The Rise of The Fallen
The Rainbow Gate
The Rainbow Gate is a portal in The Shroudmist Forest, said to open only while a rainbow shines in the sky (on either side). It’s imprecise, but not wildly so, and is one of the more stable portals in the Forest. Then closed, the portal is only detectable by faint motes of light that shifts through the spectrum of visible light. When open, it appears as a glowing ring of coruscating rainbow colors around a white center ten feet in diameter. The portal is opaque, so those who enter it can’t see where they’ll end up.
Activating the portal without a convenient rainstorm nearby and the sun at the proper angle can be tricky, but methods of shining a white light through a prism or creating magical light will work. If an instant spell such as Color Spray is used, the portal remains open for 1 round.
The area of the forest where the hill on which the Rainbow Gate sits has become the territory of a tribe of bugbears. Use caution when trying to make use of this portal, and carry big bribes.
