The Invasion of Miefarr
First Bleakwater Expedition
The First Bleakwater Expedition was widely regarded as the most colossal failure of the Tarisian Empire. Within moments of entering the Bleak Waters, while still in full view of the Tarisian Port, the whole ship was swallowed beneath the waves. None of the crew members or supplies were ever recovered. Historians estimate that the expedition lasted approximately two hours before it was finally deemed a failure, and preparations immediately began for the Second Bleakwater Expedition.
It is from this event that the Tarisian phrase “Gone the way of Bleakwater One” originated as an expression used to express the abject failure of a project or effort.
