The portal isn’t here like I’d hoped, but it is somewhere in the Vale. According the the materials I’ve found, we will need an artifact of immense power in order to perform the ritual to open it. We will also need a keeper of the grove and someone of royal blood. Reithann is the only nearby keeper I know of. Perhaps Baron Stockmer or Lord Markelhay are of royal bloodline. Reithann also knows a good deal about arcana, so I think I’ll make the trek to see her in Druid’s Grove when I can.
