This elongated device resembles an armless crossbow with two handles. Blue energy shimmers over its surface, which is set with multicolored studs that periodically rise and recede.
Wondrous Item 125,000 gp
Utility Power (Teleportation) Encounter (Standard Action)
Effect: Ranged 20 (2 unoccupied squares you can see); Roll a d20. On a result of 6–20, you create a portal in each target square. These portals persist until the end of the encounter or until you use a minor action to close them.
Any creature that steps into one portal teleports to an unoccupied square adjacent to the other portal. A portal cannot be used if no squares are unoccupied next to the other portal.
Malfunction: If you roll a 1–5, you and the creature nearest to you teleport, swapping places. You and the creature are then dazed (save ends).
