Portals are permanent teleporation effects that link many places in and outside Toril, including other planes. The devices riddle Toril, numbering in the thousands easily, though none have ever been able to determine the exact number of active portals, even in Faerûn alone.
A freestanding archway of some kind usually identifies the location of a portal, so those who cannot detect magical auras do not stumble into them accidentally. The portal itself is completely intangible.
The elfgates are portals that can teleport things to and from Evermeet.
- Elion to Evereska
- One side of this gate is on a hill about a mile above the palace of Seiveril Miritar near Elion in northern Evermeet. It is in a broad glade and consists of three old stone markers. The other side is a plaza in Evereska.
- Moonwood to Evereska
- The Evereskan side of this gate lies high in the northern Shaeradim surrounding Evereska, and consists of a stone marker covered in Espruar runes beside a waterfall beneath a stone cliff. The other side of the gate used to link to a northerly outpost of Sharrven before it became a ruin.
Teleportation Spires created by the Imaskari.
Much rarer than normal portals, a few time gates existed throughout Faerûn. They were physically similar to other portals, but transported an indivdual not through space, but into a different time.
