 Sigil’s not a place for <​ttip:​Clueless>​The folks who just don't get it, usually primes. Use this on a planar and there'​s likely to be a fight. It's also an adjective, like calling someone a "​clueless berk."</​ttip>,​ particularly arrogant Clueless. <​ttip:​Cagers>​A native or resident of Sigil.</​ttip>​ are arrogant beyond measure, but they can get away with it because they’re wise to the way of things. ​ Sigil’s not a place for <​ttip:​Clueless>​The folks who just don't get it, usually primes.

-The Cage is not like any other place in the multiverse. An infinite number of portals link Sigil to everywhere in the multiverse – any doorway, window, arch, or frame might be a dormant portal waiting for the right key to activate it and send an unwary sod to the deepest pits of the Abyss. But this makes the city vitally important to trade throughout the Planes – here, merchants from everywhere gather and meet to sell and distribute their wares. Business is conducted between opposing parties, ​ adventurers come to launch expeditions into the Planes, and the unfortunates of the Planes get marooned in its back alleys. Cutters can learn the way of the Cage – even Primes – while the Clueless are left behind to die.+The Cage is not like any other place in the multiverse.

 Sigil is a torus with a 5 mile diameter and a 20 mile circumference – at least by official <​ttip:​Guvner>​A nickname for those in the Fraternity of Order, the faction that controls the legislature and judicial branches of Sigil'​s day-to-day affairs.</​ttip>​ records. In truth, the layout of the city is mutable at the whims of [[The Lady|The Lady of Pain]], although this magical shifting is very rarely apparent, and is notable only in the Hive, where it’s said The Lady hides her Mazes. Despite this large size – at 20 miles of surface, the city is huge – the city always feels crowded. Tiny spaces in buildings that would normally house closets or pantries instead become shops or whole apartments for families. Buildings crowd each other overhead, and some streets are cut off from the skies altogether, cut off by buildings and other streets. Sigil is a torus with a 5 mile diameter and a 20 mile circumference – at least by official <​ttip:​Guvner>​A nickname for those in the Fraternity of Order, the faction that controls the legislature and judicial branches of Sigil'​s day-to-day affairs.</​ttip>​ records.
