Default Re: How it Works: The Gates of Cidri

(This leaves open the possibility that a dimension-hopping being like a Mnoren could create Gates that have ends in different universes, though I'd imagine that would require a different spell...)
I seem to recall a line somewhere in ITL that directly supports that hypothesis. Something about if one knew where to go, it might be possible to "step through a shimmering portal and find oneself in Cidri"...
