<DIV>Ahhh ok</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>so the Rending tore the continents apart? I always thought that chunks of Luclin rained down on Norrath and trashed everything</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I wonder then what the rending was</DIV>

<DIV><FONT size=2> <P>From lore I've read in game (I think it was the History of Human's quest) that as the ice cap of Velious melted the added water pressure caused the insanely strong earthquake that was the rending. As the continent ripped apart the cracks became so wide and deep that they allowed the oceans to flow into the Under-Norrath (I assume this is part of Underfoot) turning Antonica into a collection of isles.</P></FONT></DIV>
