The Rift of Repose is a hidden and unclaimed rift within the Outer Rifts that accumulates the quasi-souls of slain demon lords. Even in death, their power and worshippers keep something of the demon lord extant: the demon lords' remnants manifest as fossilized forms on the wall of the Rift.12

Though this place remains unclaimed, it is not uninhabited. Mythic nalfeshnees known as Curators act as self-appointed custodians who watch over the fossilised corpses.3

Sometimes, righteous beings will invade the Rift with the hope of obliterating the demonic remains to ensure such evil can never be resurrected. Unfortunately, these corpses have a habit of reforming elsewhere in the Rift after being destroyed. Even more troubling, the remains have been known to spontaneously resurrect upon reforming on rare occasions.3
