A generic term for an an open Nexus. A “rift” form between the material world and other strange planes of existance. Most rifts open to the same plane when they do so, fewer cycle randomly. For example, a rift may open to:
- The elemental plane of fire. Directly.Do not pass go, do not collect $200.
- Another part of the Earth.
- Any time in hisory
- A parallel dimension
- One survivor recalls his entire party, save himself, as being sucked onto the moon….
The list can go on. Needless to say, most avoid an open rift. Rifts seem to be triggered by celestial events, big or small. Depends on the individual nexus and the how many ley lines intersect. Generally, the more lines, the less of an event needed, the bigger, more extream the rift.
