The Cat's Gate was a Netherese extra-planar portal located in Anauroch.

DescriptionEdit

Most of this gate was buried by the shifting sands. What was exposed stood fifty feet tall. The gate was composed of two worn stone pillars, both fifty feet apart. The surface of the pillars was covered with carvings of cats. Three sides of each pillar were straight, but the fourth was pyramidal.[1]

In operation, the active region showed as a pane of green light, rippling with green lightning bolts.[2]

The gate on the other side was inclined at a forty-five degree angle, to prevent the sands from draining away through the gate.[3]

DestinationEdit

The gate led to the Plane of Concordant Opposition (the Outlands).[4] The exit was near the home of Gzemnid, the god of eye tyrants.[5]

HistoryEdit

Built during the height of Netheril, this gate was erected as part of an attempt to conquer the Outlands. The gate was large enough to admit an army for that reason. However, other more powerful beings of that plane had the same idea about Netheril. The city was abandoned after about a century of warfare, as the sands encroached.[6]
