Default [RPM] Access to your created Pocket Dimension

The Create Pocket Dimension ritual (RPM p.40) seems fun and useful and I have been longing to use it, but something has stopped me; I don't understand how you access it later.

I have scrutinized the ritual description and searched the forums for ages, but I can't seem find the answer. Do I have to cast another Greater Create Crossroads everytime I go there? Can I open a gate to there at will? Could I bring a collapsible portal with me maybe, and just use Lesser Control Crossroads to open and close it?

I might be missing something obvious, but these forums are often helpful anyway ^^

You could set up a gate to that dimension with a Greater Create Crossroads effect to exit and come back. You could anchor it to a key or something so that you could take it with you. If you anchor it to a stationary object I'd call it a Lesser effect, but that may require playtesting.

Hm, let me see if I got this straight. Could I state during the original casting that a gate to the dimension is anchored to a key, and then use Lesser Control Crossroads to open and close it? Could it be a separate ritual? Or could I perhaps make a ritual for a key that opens and closes a gate to the pocket dimension without further rituals?

For example:
The Key
Spell Effects: Greater Create Crossroads + Lesser Control Crossroads.
Inherent Modifiers: Range.
Greater Effects: 1 (3).

Cast on a key, the key can then be used to open and close a gate of appropriate size (often door-sized) by inserting the key into a imagined or real keyhole and turning it.

This Casting: Greater Create Crossroads (6) + Lesser Control Crossroads (5) + Duration, 1 month (11) + Range, Cross-dimension (10). 96 energy (323).

Could something like that work, and be renewed together with the dimension? Or can that even be stated during the original casting, maybe with an extra Control Crossroads?

Yes, you could. in pretty much all cases.

That seems fine.
