I've built a Basic Town Portal in a town, which states that it allows your hero to teleport from that town to any other town you control. I've got my hero in the town, but how do I make them teleport? If I tell them to move to another town, they just start walking there.

What happens if you put your hero into the town and then click on the portal? (I have actually never played 6, so I am assuming the town interface is similar to the one in 5 or 3) – murgatroid99 Oct 9 '11 at 16:21
If there is no portal to click on, is there an icon on the interface that represents the portal? – murgatroid99 Oct 9 '11 at 16:34
I didn't think it was out for another week? O.o – Raven Dreamer Oct 9 '11 at 16:49
Demo version maybe? – Sorean Oct 9 '11 at 18:15
Yes, this is from playing the demo. – bwarner Oct 9 '11 at 21:47

Once you've built a Basic Town Portal, all of your heroes gain a Town Portal Basic spell in their spellbook.

Spellbook with Town Portal

When a hero is standing in a town with a Basic Town Portal, they can cast Town Portal Basic to teleport to any other towns you own.

According to the mouseover, the spell requires 15 movement points in addition to the 10 mana.

Wow, that's entirely not obvious. Thanks! – bwarner Oct 10 '11 at 0:49
No it isn't. However, Town Portal was historically a spell in previous versions of HoMM. – au revoir Oct 10 '11 at 1:03
