#RPGaDAY 30: Portal

Day 30 of #RPGaDAY 2020. Today’s prompt is ‘Portal’.

Certainly one of the tropes in fantasy is a magical portal that allows one to teleport over vast distances, or even onto another world or dimension! Adepts of Campbell’s monomyth archetype will see it as some kind of transformation device, a transition between two states of being.
I have to admit I am not overly fond of the trope, and I rarely use it in my games. My scenarios are more like “investigative roadtrips”, and why would I want to provide short-cuts like that?
