Radullu Rift

Opened9 Bliss 1688 DE

In the Dawn War, the primordial Sarseg created a rift in the Web of Magic. This opened a passage between the worlds Throndar and Bal-Kriav.

Since Sarseg was a weave spider, he had intricate knowledge of the Web of Magic and how to counter the repairing made by his former kindred. Sarseg surrounded the rift with an area of dead magic which made the rift irreparable and thus permanent. He then used it to mount attacks on the angelic forces at Achamâz and other Covenant bastions.

When the angels learned that the Radullu Rift was permanent, they looked for ways to block it. After interrogating some prisoners, the angel Loki learned that the other side of the rift was on the planet Throndar. The Nawirrûs Covenant tasked Silvanus and his army with the job of finding a way to block the rift from the other side. Thanks to Sarseg's overconfidence, the other side was lightly defended. Silvanus and his Hedge Legion used their druidic magic to create earthquakes in the hills between the rift opening and a great freshwater sea on Throndar. This created a gap in the hills, quickly submerging the rift under 300' of water.

This was an ecological disaster in the making, but a sacrifice must be made, for to do nothing could lead to the loss of both worlds. In another time, I will find a way to feed the water back to Throndar.

- Silvanus, from a Scroll of Dawn - "Flooding the Radullu Rift"

The side effect of flooding the Radullu Rift had wide reaching consequences on the world Bal-Kriav. The plateau lake Radullu was born, then the quadrupling of lake Orukhan, and then flooding a wide swathe of land to the south. These changes, the Radullu Creep turned much of sectors Ara'phis and Chen'gom into wetlands.

In a Scroll of Dawn, Silvanus says that he would repair the damage caused by flooding the rift. His first attempt, with the help of a primordial, produced the area known as God Folley. One of the more successful containment measures is Tara-Har. The Nature Protectorate of the Troll Bogs, Boglin, claims that there is another rift that draws water back to whence it came. She has never told anyone of its location and no other has found it.
