As you will have no doubt already surmised from that rather natty sign, the Astral Market is currently closed to the general public. Recently the Portal took a rather large meteor straight to the moneymaker, and it caused quite a mess.
So for now, we’re afraid that we can only offer essential services. Flights will be departing sporadically but don’t hold your breath, the Sound Lodge has temporarily relocated to the Exposition Lobby (much to everyone’s (dis)pleasure), and the Triple Dot Tavern is open to regular patrons only — believe us, this is much more of a public service than it sounds.
In the meantime, outbound portals will still be operating from the Dimension Gate Terminals, although it would do well to remember that the cost of redirection is reduced accuracy, so don’t blame us if you (or part of you) end up stranded in the Vagrant Ocean or the Qalahar desert. For those who came here to be bludgeoned by rabid commercialism, Red Cloud Outpost should more than slake your thirst expenditure.
And of course, if you’d like us to kindly give you a nudge when the Market is looking a little less meteor-y (or about any other interesting events), then I’m sure the folks running our Exposition Broadcasts system would be most happy to oblige. Til then!
