Perilous Gateways
Portals of Lantan

By Jeff Quick

Lantan is a near-mythical island out in the Trackless Sea where gnomes invent wondrous things. Strangely, although the island’s name is known throughout Faerûn, almost no one who wasn’t born there has visited. Lantanese traders usually sail to other ports rather than accepting traders in their own port, and no commonly known portals take travelers there.

Of course, there might be some commonly unknown portals operating under everyone’s noses. Take a look at four portals that travel into and out of Lantan, and meet the people who put them there…if you can find them.
