A video, not made by me… All in 1 D&D Portals, Murals, Archways and Arch Walls, from the RP Archive, on YouTube.

To me, this is a scene from Q1: Queen of the Demonweb Pits module. Lolth had a room full of portals which would take the PC's to many foreign planets/Alternate Prime Material Planes. As a young DM, I found this concept breathtaking, and terrifying! I saw the possibilities in the short write-up's for each portal, but I also saw how much work each world would be to develop into a playable adventure/storyline!

Watching this video was really a blast from the past. I DM'ed Q1 in roughly 1982… Wow! That experience, alone, was worth the price of admission (free!). LOL! I hope this inspires, and perhaps gives some of you your very own flashbacks. Enjoy! Cheers!

If you don't have a hot wire cutter then readyboard foamboard from dollartree is really easy to use instead-- the paper just peels off and you're left with like a 4mm thick piece of foam. Everything else in the build is knife work.
