- "This is a shimmering piece of filigreed metalwork that you picked up in the Great Foundry. It looks almost gauzy. Sharp edges protrude from it. You have no idea where it goes right now, but it must be important if you commissioned it for yourself."
The key to the portal is a Bloody Handkerchief. This is learned from Quell, in the Civic Festhall. A Chocolate Quasit will have to be given to him after being purchased from Vrischika's Curiosity Shoppe. The blood in question is from Kesai-Serris – she must be convinced to help (see her page for a detailed walkthrough). After, the portal can be used to reach the Black-Barbed Maze.
