I looked them up, and less than a third of the coordinates are the same as or similar to words in Novah. However, they all look just like the four-part password the Empire used to guard the last remaining exit to the surface, suggesting a much more common magi-related origin. In any case, the Novah origin seems questionable enough to move it to the talk page, so here it is. --- Slartucker 03:42, 2 February 2006 (CST)
Isn't the onyx scepter capable of closing unfinished portals? Also, what about the Mass teleporter the Empire was building? Are those two subjects inappropriate for the general nature of the article, or is it just that no one has gotten around to adding information on them yet?
- The mass teleporter is mentioned, but it has its own article, so details belong there unless they are essential to a section of this article. The onyx scepter is a poorly understood artifact. What we know that's relevant to portals is that (1) according to Linda, it "heals space"; and that (2) the Empire War Heroes used it to contain the rift caused by their sabotage of the mass teleporter. -- Slarty 15:02, 26 January 2008 (PST)
