Key Skill: Arcana

Reverse Portal is a level 12 ritual, which allows creatures from a remote teleportation circle to arrive at the current location.

You create a shortcut across the fabric of the world, linking your location with a permanent teleportation circle elsewhere on the same plane (see the Linked Portal  ritual, Player’s Handbook, page 307). As part of performing this ritual, you sketch out a 10-foot-diameter circle in rare chalks and inks. Alternatively, you can use a permanent teleportation circle, which reduces the component cost to 150 gp and grants you a +5 bonus to your Arcana check.

At the ritual’s completion, make an Arcana check. The result determines the duration that the portal remains open.

Arcana Check Result  Portal Duration
19 or lower  1 round
20–39 3 rounds
40 or higher  5 rounds

The portal displays views of the other location in the same way as that created by the Linked Portal ritual, but creatures cannot enter the origin point and appear at the other location. Instead, creatures can only step into the distant end of the portal to appear at the origin point with you.
