They're just a bunch of damn Clueless. What could they possibly do to us?
— Unknown Cager
Now in the Dead Book

"You look lost, sirrah. Walk with me for a moment and I'll teach you the dark of things -- that'd be the secrets, for a clueless traveler such as yourself. Mind you, don't brush against the grime; there's lots of soot-stained walls here. Now, sir prime, look up. Makes you dizzy, don't it, seeing the city of Sigil above you? See, living in an impossible city ain't always simple. You need a guide. That'll be twelve silvers. What, you ain't got any? Well, normally I don't do this sort of thing, but I'm in need of a new coat, and yours might do nicely on an evening such as this.

"Ah, much more better. Where was I? Sigil's a cage for everyone: for the celestials, for the fiends, for the Clueless and for the Lady. That's why the cutters who set their cases -- uh, their homes -- in Sigil call themselves Cagers. The cagers who know the place best are us who teach; we're known as touts. I do my level best to tell a cutter everything he needs to know to survive in Sigil. Not everything there is to know, mind you. That'd cost extra.

"Sigil's the Crossroads, the great, shudderin' home to all the planewalkers of the Great Ring. The Lady creates portals that lead everywhere, and when she wills she closes them. Most of the simple portals look like doorways; they only take cutters elsewhere when they carry the right key, and a key could be anything -- a silver blade, a secret word, or and elaborately illuminated deck of cards. Because the city's doors lead everywhere, everyone comes to Sigil sooner or later. That's when a sharp tout latches onto them, whirls them around the sewers and the jink-shops, and takes their fee. Sure, it's not polite, but everyone's a cynic in Sigil, and the Clueless pay the price for their ignorance. Uh, no, I'm not calling you ignorant, sir prime! You, I respect!"
