The Castle in the Rift is a science fiction adventure series told from multiple perspectives all centered around a rising event that could prove fate inevitable or render it obsolete.
Who are O.U.R.S.?
O.U.R.S. is comprised of various volunteers from across the universe. Their goal is to study all life forms & document them, as well as their histories and futures.
Funded by the Board of Dimensional Unification, or B.D.U, they are made up of the diverse high-technological & most governed oriented planets on either side of the Rift.
O.U.R.S is controlled by a strict set of rules to not interfere with time and space, aid or inhibit the progress of knowledge or evolution on underdeveloped planets, to oversee & record all things along time & space boundaries with an unbiased mind.
They also make note over paranormal phenomenon as a means over scientific research for all creatures, living or dead. This is made prominent with their great involvement in the mysterious Rift.
What is the Rift?
“The Astral Plane, Purgatory, Void – the Rift has many names, all alluding to it’s mysterious dark nature. In the Rift, time refuses to run normally. Day & night cease to have true meaning; seasons, or weather, are hard to predict. Between both dimensions & time itself, the Rift runs on its own timeline.
Tracking it is difficult. The probable source to otherworldly phenomena across the universe – it is, itself, a supernatural entity. Traveling is difficult, for myself included – to get to the Rift. Only those who have traversed its incomprehensible lands can easily create a link to this lost world.
Communication is a problem as well, for if no soul can travel, neither can word.
O.U.R.S. members have been lost many times in the Rift, trying to gather what little information they can ascertain. They have disappeared for months, sometimes years, though they will attest that they’ve only been gone hours.
Akin to this ominous yet fascinating void, is a strong connection to the Land of the Dead.
Readings, sightings of lost souls & voices have been reported yet nothing conclusive.
The Rift may very well be the beginning & end… To everything.”
