The Universal Rift is hard to explain, but basically a fracture in the time continuum. When this fracture seeps into our universe, it becomes a rift that links to other universes and dimensions.
A Universal Rift runs in the middle of Varrock, in secret. The Torchwood team are investigating it.
The presence of the rift may have influenced many attacks on Varrock.
- Varrock being the first place where the Scorpozi invaded. (RP: Peacekeepers)
- Battle of Varrock
- The Cyber-Tank attack. (RP: Regicide)
- The Slitheen ship appearing over Varrock. (RP: Battle of Asgarnia)
- The Grand Exchange's Burning. (RP: Bank Heist)
- The Grand Exchange being overran by Xenomorphs and the rest of Varrock being overran by Deathworms. (RP: Revenge of the Alone Ones)
