Are we talking about different portals here?
The portal I thought you were talking about was the one that lead to a hidden temple where the enemies of Elizabeth were meeting.
There is absolutely no way the same portal
used to travel to the temple can be used to travel to the future. Because her enemies in the present
just used it, and they just now
decided to attack Elizabeth.
This isn't Queen Elizabeth's enemies from across time and space, because it would be impossible for her to have them. She hasn't time traveled.
These are her enemies on Mrear.
This place and time will still exist when you need to return.
is where they need to be now
(Deathfire) and this time
is the same time
So what "place and time" will they be returning to? o_O
If they go back through the portal
they will end up in the meeting place - the temple - again. Not on top of a hill...unless a time skip was involved...
Damn you all for such confusion.
