A Scroll of Town Portal opens a magical blue gateway from the wilderness to the nearest town. The Town Portal remains active until your character enters it from town and returns to the place where it was originally cast. Casting a new Town Portal will close any other portals previously created by that character.
Designed to hold volumes of similar spells, each tome can store up to 20 scrolls of the same type. Vendors who sell scrolls generally sell tomes as well. Right-click on a tome to cast one of the scrolls stored within it. When a tome is empty, it remains in inventory until it is replenished with more scrolls, sold, dropped, or traded.
Tips: By pressing the shift key while right-clicking on a scroll you want to buy, you automatically purchase enough scrolls to fill the first unfilled tome of that scroll type in your inventory.

Using a Scroll of Town Portal opens up a portal near your character. This portal is a gateway to the nearest safe stronghold, town, or city. A portal remains active until your character re-enters it and returns to the place from which the portal was originally activated. Newly created portals will cancel out any portals previously cast by your character.
The destination of the Town Portal is listed above it, as is the name of the character who opened the Town Portal.
Town Portal use is restricted to party members only. Other players must join your party to use your Town Portal. Similarly, you must join a party before you can use other players’ Town Portals.
If you go hostile with another player your Town Portal will close. You also will not be able to use the Town Portals of other players or Town Portals created by a Portal Shrine.
When fighting powerful bosses, Unique monsters, or huge groups of monsters, your character may wind up dying a lot. Have two party members cast Town Portal a few screens apart. If monsters begin to camp around or guard one Town Portal, you can enter using the other one. Party members can continue to use these portals without recasting, as long as the original Town Portal casters do not use their own portal when returning from town or create any new Town Portals. This method is very handy when you are low on Health Potions and need to return to town frequently to heal, refill Mana or buy more Healing Potions.
Remember to make sure that everyone in your party has used your Town Portal to return to battle before entering it yourself. Otherwise, you might close your Town Portal leaving someone in town. You do not want to have to use another Town Portal scroll to reunite your party.
When going through large areas between Waypoints, It is a good idea to open up a Town Portal as a quick escape route. You can use it to retreat from danger or to get back to your body much more quickly if you die.
Town Portals are also your best escape from other players who are trying to kill you. If a player turns Hostile on you, quickly use a Town Portal to escape to the safety of town if you want to avoid player-to-player combat.
