This innocuous-looking scrap is nothing less than the physical manifestation of a man-made demiplane. To open the gate, one must unfurl the scroll and speak the name of the plane. Upon activation, all creatures within 50 feet with line of effect to the scroll must make a DC 40 Reflex save. Those who fail are sucked into the scroll and bodily transported to the demiplane. At the same instant creatures enter the plane, any being that previously entered the plane involuntarily may choose to depart, being expelled from the scroll back to the Material Plane. Once inside the demiplane, escape can prove difficult, requiring those trapped within to wait for others to enter, for the casting of a spell similar to plane shift, or for the discovery of one of the foundations of the plane’s reality, all of which transport the subjects back to the Material Plane to a point within 10 feet of the scroll.
Containing even a small group of chaotic beings such as azatas, proteans, or demons will gradually cause the plane to unravel, while a larger group or a more powerful chaotic entity can rend the demiplane to shreds in moments.
