Dimension Spotlight: That’s No Moon…

Ever feel like RIFT‘s missing a little… something? Something a little Star Wars-y, perhaps? If you’ve ever wanted a little Star Wars in your RIFT or a little RIFT in your Star Wars, there’s a dimension just for you! “Thats No Moon : Its a fat dwarf” is an oddly-named (yes, that’s exactly how it appears in-game) guild dimension on the Icewatch shard that’s a fusion of both RIFT and Star Wars. How cool is that?

The dimension used to create this lovely, geeky paradise is the Tuldio Sun Orb guild dimension and belongs to the Ancient Shadows guild. Included in this theme park of a dimension is a pair of clonetroopers, a snowspeeder, a couple AT vehicles, a replica of the Millennium Falcon, a TIE fighter, a star destroyer and an X-wing. Jabba the Hut, a cool droid, and an awesome looking dragon can also be found. In the very center of the dimension is a miniature scene featuring Ewoks, a speederbike, and an Ewok village that’s been slightly RIFT-ified. Oh, and did I mention Yoda’s there? With his hut? And fish?

Enough said. You gotta see this one to believe it. Keep reading to take a look at our screenshot tour.

Click on any image to bring up the full-size versions. I may have, um, gotten a bit carried away with screenshots.

Despite how awesome the screenshots look, screenshots really don’t do this one justice. Go see it for yourself for the full sci-fi theme park treatment with all of the zapping lightning effects and whatnot.

If you normally play on a North American shard, to see this gem for yourself by hopping on Icewatch, you’ll need to switch to the European shards. To do this, start up RIFT but don’t hit “Play” from the patching screen. Go down to “Settings” on the bottom right and select “Europe” instead of “North America” from the dropdown box next to “Region”. Hit “Save” then “Back”, and now when you hit “Play”, you’ll see the list of European shards. Make a level 1 character, log in, and explore away!

I… suddenly want to watch lots of Star Wars. The Force is strong with this dimension, yes.
