    Keléstia's Unwitting Champion
    Expedition

    On Earth, a struggling scientist who'd already over shot his time traveling target by five years, attempted to modify his gear to a surprising result. Though originally intended to harness cosmic energy, the adjustment allowed the scientist to harness the energy of Keléstia and use that energy to open portals to the many worlds the energy was connected to including Abeir-Toril. Spending the day traveling between them, the scientist would inevitably run in to trouble on the planet Kèthîra and be forced to enter another type of portal entirely. Expecting to open up a door into a proper doorway, the scientist actually opened a door to The Spire in O’Kuultaele Vairtatiis; where upon he would remained trapped in the city below until his equipment was repaired.
