On the nature of Sigillian portals

The portals of Sigil. Such a delightful mix of interversal unity that ultimately disgusts everyone as much as it fascinates them in the end. I've taken to studying these portals to allow for some musings as to what their purpose may be.To begin this essay let me introduce a fun scientific fact about the portals of Sigil: They take time. It's true, I've witnessed this myself. The importance of this may elude you, but it's a simple enough experiment if you'll indulge me for a some minutes.The receipe:

A Just-So Story

Best Beloved, would you like to hear how Slaad got his ranks? No? Shall I get out the... oh, I knew you'd see it my way. When the gods of creation made the First Mortal, they gave him the task of naming every creature in existence. (I'll show you what hard is, Best Beloved, if you don't shut up).

We all know fear. Apprehension in difficult situations. The fear for loved ones. Panic even, when all we thought we knew crumbles around us. But it is a natural thing. Instincts of self-preservation come to the fore to warn us from impending danger. Surely there can be nothing harmful in that?

The legends are empty of any true facts, but we would not have them any other way.
