You want to know the truth of what Sigil really is? Better be prepared to ask around, berk! It’s a cert that any ten bloods you ask will come up with eleven different stories. To save you the trouble, there’s several dozen stored in this here mimir. Pick the one you like best and hold it dear, ’cause it’s as true as any other…

The Mimir Speaks of Sigil

“Sigil. The Cage. The City of Doors. The Burg at the Centre of All. The Nexus. The Beginning of the Ring. These are some of the many names given to the Burg at the Confluence of the Planes. It’s an impossible place, floating at the top of an infinite Spire at the centre of the Outlands. It can be seen from anywhere on the plane, but it can only be reached through one of the portals created by its ruler, the Lady of Pain. It’s therefore as easy or as hard to find as She wills.

“Sigil is a city unlike any other. It is divided into six wards, though the boundaries are not marked on any map. Here are the headquarters of the factions, the greatest temples, the toughest bloods and the most diverse mixture of races in the Planes. The Cage is in a constant state of war, though blood is rarely shed openly. Instead it is a war of intrigue and politics, the kriegstanz, where allegiances change faster than the weather. The burg is also said to be filled with those seeking to escape their fates, as no Power can step, or even look within the city.

“To learn more, travel there. More portals lead to the Cage than any other place. Touts, or guides, can be found there who will show a traveller where to go, and where not to go. Pay them well if you like your information to be accurate.”
