In the Creation War, this place was a naval base for forcing serving the Nawirrûs Covenant. It was named Rîni, a Supernal word meaning simply "Ring". It was one of a series of Covenant defenses protecting military sector Athoreon. Rîni was a threat to Poseidon's forces operating in Salzârrâk, so he put enormous resources into building a dam that would block the area's two great bays - Phedumarras and Nebezedel.

What shall we do about Poseidon's work on the dam?

We will let him continue to pour resources into it, perhaps he will finish by war's end.

- Bal-Kriav, to Ares - "Poseidon's Great Dam"

Poseidon and his army of sea titans finished the dam a hundred years before war's end, but by then the areas around it were controlled by his enemies. He stubbornly continued to work on it, long after military operations shifted to other parts of the realm. The dam caused the two bays to lose half of their water, marooning boats and making Rîni untenable for its defenders. Poseidon then wiped the place out, reducing it to rubble.

In 1686 HE, elderaunts of the Abusai tribe began rebuilding this coastal ruin.

The largest ship yards of Midrêth are in this city. Not only do they make naval ships here, but a fair number of void craft are also produced in its towering docking facilities.

The city's largest racial groups are Elderaunts and Giff.
