In the isles of Angur
off of the coast of Anvil
, a bizarre tradition takes place during the summer solstice for new folks who have come of age.
Angurans face The Choice
once they reach adulthood on whether they wish to remain in Melior, isolated to the islands they were born and raised upon, or to live forever away from home - beyond the Rifts
Under Anguran law, passing through a rift is a one way ticket. Once one leaves, they may never return, lest they bring back disease, weapons, strife and conflict, or foreign ideologies.
There are numerous rifts located across the islands and not all of them lead to the same realm, but without knowing anything of what lies beyond - how can you know if you've made the right choice?
"I want to explore the realms and learn all about what's out there! ... but - my best friend says she's decided already that she will stay here.
I'll never see her again."
