The Doorway is a colony event chain that has a very small chance to trigger 2 or 3 years after any colony has been founded. It offers 3 mutually exclusive paths determined at random.

The Doorway

Evt wormhole.png

What can only be described as a dimensional portal has been discovered in a remote location on [colony name]. Weather prediction algorithms noticed a strange air current, which was eventually determined to be caused by the slight leakage of atmosphere into the portal. The rate of loss is far too small for it to make any difference to life on [colony name], but the very existence of this portal raises some disturbing questions, such as where does it lead to, and could something come through the portal from the other side?

The Null Void

The Dimensional Portal on [colony name] leads to a dimension of pure entropy. It is difficult to even get sensor readings because the very energy of our pings is rapidly dissipated. Our best theory is that this "Null Void" is a dimension where the majority of zero-point energy is negative and so any positive energy which was once present has long since been used up. Knowing this, it might be possible to construct a weapon which can use the Null Void's energy destruction offensively.

A Dimension of Suffering

Evt space funeral.png

The Dimensional Portal on [colony name] seems to lead to a realm which is opposed to the sapient mind on a fundamental level. Any and all contact with material from this dimension causes intense suffering in the subject, which if continued for more than a few minutes leads to intense suicidal urges coupled with attempts to mutilate their sensory organs. Even simply studying data recorded in the strange dimension causes intense discomfort in the biological observer, and cascading errors in computer systems.

Strangely, the Dimensional Portal on [colony name] seems to connect to a planet which looks very much like [colony name]. Stranger still, there's a signal being broadcast to us through it...

Probing the Void

After years of study, some researchers on [colony name] are beginning to feel they understand the Null Void. There are... currents. Forces. Some flow which gently pushes against the portal to [empire name], bringing the traces of Dark Matter we are able to collect. In theory it should be possible to make our portal more "visible" to this force, which should result in a larger harvest.

The Portal was determined to be able to handle almost unlimited energy input, but the key word is "almost". By generating energy at an unprecedented scale and continuously bombarding the Portal, it was eventually possible to cause it to overload and collapse in on itself. Needless to say, the generation of vast amounts of energy has the potential to be useful in other areas.

Inter-dimensional Trade Increases

The Mirror-Dimension [empire name] reports that their economy is booming. Contributing factors mentioned were our Portal Trade, as well as recent victories over the Warp beasts.

Calling the Void

A vast signal amplifier has sent a blast of energy through the portal on [colony name]. The effect was immediate, the pressure on the far side of the portal is noticeably stronger, and with it comes an increased flow of Dark Matter.

Sometimes a simple answer is the best answer. After blasting several mountains into gravel and dumping the result into the portal, it seems to have been overloaded. Or, perhaps, was deliberately shut down. Regardless, the remaining material was dumped on top of the site in case it ever re-opens. The experience of such a large engineering and mining project will also prove useful in other areas.

The Portal seemed to react in some way to the thoughts of nearby observers, some more than others. Through a process of elimination it was possible to find a large number of people who were especially potent at influencing the Portal, and together they were able to effectively will the Portal to close. The experience was enlightening and provides strong evidence that it is possible to harness and direct belief in tangible ways.

The Portal proved to be sensitive to Psionic powers. By collecting a number of Psionically powerful individuals together, they were able to effectively create a Psionic barrier around the portal, preventing any access. The experience was enlightening and provides strong evidence that it is possible to form solid barriers from Psionic energy.
