Trivia Portals

Help Trivia Portals

Players may pay 15 trivia points to have a personal portal created to the
first room of an area.  Trivia portals are level 1 and are owned to the
player requesting them.  Note that you may buy a trivia portal for another
player as a gift, however.  New trivia portals also come with a free
restring; see 'help restring' for a list of strings that can be set.

Note: Trivia portal descriptions must follow the same restrictions set
in the
help restring helpfile. This includes three max keywords, 50
characters for the short description and 80 characters for the long 
description. (This _includes_ color codes!)

Almost every area is allowed, with the following exceptions.  These areas
either have no set first room, require special area quests to get to, or
are considered 'endgame' areas.

    Clan areas          Limbo                Sea King's Dominion
    Continent areas    Lower Planes          Upper Planes (incl 9hells)
    Immortal Homes      Manor areas          The Warzone
    Lasertag area      Oradrin's Chosen      Journey to the Inferno
    Cracks of Terra    Icefall              The Titan's Keep
    Winds of Fate      A Genie's Last Wish

Areas with multiple 'parts' in different level ranges may only have a
trivia portal to the first room of the first part of the area:

    Fractured Lands    School of Horror         
    Storm Ships of Lem-Dagor (with Prosper Island)

Note- while trivia portals are still allowed to the following Vidblain
areas, manor and clan exits are not.

    The Darklight    The Witches of Omen Tor    Imperial Nation
    Adventures in Sendhia

The 'first room of an area' is defined as the room where a continent exit,
portal, or custom exit leads to/from an area.  Areas which only link to
other areas will have the portal set at the first room within that area.
Zone start locations are saved in the zone information itself; if you are
unsure of the starting point of an area, contact an Immortal for that
location.

An area must be live on Aardwolf for a minimum of two weeks before you may
purchase a trivia portal to it.

The easiest way to request a portal is to post the area and strings you
desire (and which exit, if necessary) in a note to Imm on the Upgrades
board.  This will allow an available Imm to create it as you continue about
your way.  You must be online to receive the portal when it is made and
have trivia points on your pfile (not trivia point tokens).


See 'help portal replacements' for rules regarding replacing trivia portals
to areas which no longer exist.
