Mana Pool: RIFT takes place in the world of Telara. It is one of many worlds, and these other planes of existence try to invade through inter-dimensional ‘rifts’, giving the game its name. These tears in reality are themed around the elements of Water, Air, Fire, Death, Life, and Earth. Water rifts, as an example, spawn a huge leviathan in the sky, with water cascading down from them. Mobs and the nearby environment are changed to suit the elements. The world has a very dynamic feel as rifts tear open reality and spew forth extraterrestrial horrors. But they aren’t the only threat you will encounter.
