Created in the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE) by a primordial disembodied thinker named Ingu'lumin, this rift was a link between Chaos and the world of Bal-Kriav. Ingu'lumin used a mountain of rock, one floating in the infinite entropic expanse of Chaos like a wedge, keeping open a rift cutting through the Web of Magic. On Bal-Kraiv, this alien mountain, later to be named Gunul-Birum, defiled the landscape, blowing ash and fiery entropic matter across an area that came to be known as the Rukhs wasteland.
Ingu'lumin's First Rift did not last long. By design, and at great expense, it was merely a test on the level of resistance that would come from the Web's indomitable weave spiders. These eternal guardians of the Web were quick to arrive at the tear and begin repairing, sealing the rift and the flood of entropic matter coming through. During their work, they destroyed three of Ingu'lumin's clones. After the closure of what became known as Ingu'lumin First Rift, its creator initiated the second stage of his plan, the opening of another, Ingu'lumin's Second Rift.
