Etheria -- Earlier today, a strange portal opened and then quickly disappeared. No injuries were reported.
The portal's lingering trace indicates a powerful magic of unknown origins, according to officials from the Emergency Magical Staff. They warn that citizens should steer clear of the area as they believe the portal may come back.
The EMS managed to extract the memory of the portal from an eyewitness, and The Etherian Free Press has exclusive coverage of that memory:
The EMS also reported that a few leaves and branches blew through while the portal was open. Botanists are scratching their heads over this unidentified flora.
Local citizens are preparing for the possible return of the portal.
"I hope something dangerous is coming," said the Dragonfall Knight Commander. "You can quote me on that. I've already got one scar. I want a matching set!"
The Knight Commander is calling for heroes to prepare themselves for a fight.
"If I sound the horn and you lily-livered scoundrels don't answer," he said, "I'll give you a scar myself!"
