Perilous Gateways

Dwarven Portals

By Robert Wiese

Dwarves are known to prefer more straightforward methods of doing things to magical ones. They mine, they fight, they feast, they uphold their honor. They use magic, but as a supplement to their activities rather than as a primary means of accomplishing them. Those who practice magic among the dwarves are not common. Those who can make portals are even rarer, and with good reason. Portals among the dwarves usually have some unusual feature or meet some unusual need; you just don't find them everywhere. You have to look hard for them.

About the Author

Robert Wiese began playing D&D with the blue boxed set, the one after the original three small pamphlets. He has campaigned through three and a half editions of his favorite roleplaying game, and has tried Call of Cthulhu and some other games as well. Throughout it all he has learned that a great DM makes a great campaign. So he is happy to assist great DMs with little ideas such as these portals. He led the RPGA Network through the tough times and now works at UNR as a biochemical researcher. Life is very full between studies, work, pets (three dogs, three cats, a fish, a frog, a toad, and two rats) and gaming, but Robert always puts his wife and his faith first.
