I make my way past thick branches to the bottom of the dark, twisted stairs. Looking up I can see they are surrounded by marble columns. I make my way up and stop to face the entryway of the portal. Ominous clouds hover on the other side. A map of the journey through the portal appears before my eyes. It is filled with circles, mathematical equations, and symbolic representations of rivers cutting through cliffs. Lightning bolts crash through the clouds in the background. However, I am ready. Taking an immense breath, I step into the portal, and begin the journey through night and pandemonium.
