Proposed Canon

Portals are magic teleportation devices that allow a user to leave one hex and enter another instantly. They may be an example of Hat Magic.

The only known portals connect to the Magic Kingdom. One of these portals is known to connect to Gobwin KnobErf-b1-p013Same-site.PNG and it did survive the Volcano Uncroaking.Erf-b1-p142Same-site.PNG The City of Unaroyal also possessed a portal to the Magic Kingdom before its fall.

A non-caster unit that attempts to walk through a portal to the Magic Kingdom will vanish, and be disbanded. This is how Queen Bea of Unaroyal committed suicide.

Speculation

It seems using a portal doesn't follow the classical Movement rules since it would disallow using one by night or off Turn.Erf-b1-p046Same-site.PNG Yet, the linked Maggie-Wanda-Sizemore and Parson use Gobwin Knob's portal to the Magic Kingdom during the turn of the Royal Crown Coalition.Erf-b1-p136Same-site.PNG They then return to Gobwin KnobErf-b1-p142Same-site.PNG a few moments before the start of their turn.Erf-b1-p144Same-site.PNG Also, a unit of another side is shown using a portal during Gobwin Knob's turn.Erf-b1-p013Same-site.PNG In addition, using a portal must not cost the portalling unit any move, as Parson, with a move of 0, is able to use one without any of the problems associated with crossing hex boundaries. Likewise, the casters left in the Coalition's turn, so they would not be otherwise able to leave the hex.
