The Wyrdgate is a "black area" cut through the Wyrd, the foundation of Erilea and all worlds in the megaverse. It is capable of opening portals into different worlds, or destroying them altogether. Inter-dimensional creatures can enter and leave through these gates. Wyrdgates are created by Queen Maeve as she wished to escape from her husband Orcus. The Wyrdgates open randomly, or with the use of the Wyrdkeys.
