# Where do you go when a Portal closes from the other side?

What would happen to the PCs who

enter one of the elemental portals, with one of them wielding the elemental weapon, causing it to close when it touches? Are the characters trapped on the elemental plane, where they must try to find another portal to escape, or are they forced back to the material plane, such as opposite what happens to the elemental princes when their portal closes.

Which plane do they end up on?

• Typing >! at the start of a line will allow you to make a spoiler tag. I have added them for you here, but if you would like to re-word the question to allow it to have part in spoilers, and part not, you are more than welcome to. – Shem Oct 2 '17 at 18:25
• So, the PC is wielding the elemental weapon, but walking backwards through the portal so that the weapon touches it once they're already mostly through? Or holding it behind their back as they cross the threshhold? – GMJoe Oct 2 '17 at 20:53
• Or the PC is following other PCs in and being third in line, pop, two people are now on the other side – James Oct 2 '17 at 21:09
