That makes sense. Except you have to be near it as far as we know. Or maybe it calls on the same system in the same way Gaardus and Velika can, but they might not be actually using the gate.
I'm theorizing "it" is working again because Velika made it work, enabling him to teleport where needed for the murders and preparations. And these lines and others seem to imply that Gaardus got his teleportation powers from the RS too; that he is able to call on the teleporter. And Velika is too. Since Velika repaired it (in my theory) or switched it on, Gaardus became able to teleport again. So the idea goes anyways.
Is it possible that he could be using the Spirit's Wish gate? It does have some connection with the Red Star.
Edit: Actually, here's a subtheory. Gaardus was altered to give him that ability, apparently, while Velika was not. But what if Velika physically traveled to the gate, and stole whatever machine is inside it that makes it work? If this theory is right, a character in the story could test it by going to the gate and seeing if anything's different, such as Tarduk. Running with the theory that Gaardus and the gate both call on an RS teleporter.
Also, if the teleporter's operation for Gaardus and the Kestora, etc. was off, and is now on, yet Tarduk & co. via the gate used it during that period, perhaps this machine contains a remote switch for it. Perhaps when Tarduk used it, it would switch the teleporter on, use it, then switch it back off. But Velika may have switched it on and left it on now. That would explain a lot.
