Gruelbowl was an Imperium Frontier World until it was invaded by the Word Bearers in the aftermath of the Great Rift's creation.
The Word Bearers then began was the site of a painstakingly planned mass sacrifice, that was composed of not only Humans, but also captured Ork Freebooterz, Eldar Outcasts and Tau ambassadors. Despite the intervention of Craftworld Alaitoc, the Word Bearers were able to complete the ritual. As a result, the Great Rift expanded throughout the space lanes around Gruelbowl, leaving it at the mercy of the Word Bearers.
