A huge Rift forced it’s way into our realm today on the continent of Nautilus Taber. Massive damage was caused to the region, including the old settlement called Valley of the Winds which was mostly destroyed
The Rift, made from soulsand, had a total of 3 cores. Many mortals showed up to fight the rift and were able to kill it before it was able to form more cores.
Unlike Netherrack rifts (which turn to sand and collapse on death), soulsand rifts solidify into stone, like capturing that moment in time. Glowstone & other rare materials can usually still be found on these stone structures which were once rifts.
