This mysterious glowing gate is hidden away in the most unlikely of places. Stone steps curve upwards to a door that looks as if it doesn’t belong to this time or place. Surrounded by rough rock, and primitive pillars and ladders, its glow dimly illuminates the crumbling cavern which seems barren of all other life. If you could avoid the gaping holes in the floor, and wind your way up the ladders and out of this place, what would you find beyond it? Sunlight and fresh air? A dying world? Perhaps you’d be better off risking the gate and hoping there is something good on the other side. But that doorway could go absolutely anyplace. Why was it built, and who built it? Was it intended to be a simple mode of transportation, or a unique wonder? Was is built to provide a way home…or a way to escape?
