a bitter wharfage

The Supermariners’ Corp had been established by High King Groper to take the struggle to the enemy, to the Legged Ones, in their cracked and waterless lair. Unfortunately the courage and determination of the Supermariners’ Corps was not matched by their ability to survive outside the Wet.

Nor was their intelligence sufficiently comprehensive or accurate to enable them to avoid terrible martyrdom upon the burning sands of the Great Dry.

And so the kingdom continued to suffer the depredations of the Legged Ones. No one was safe. Every tasty morsel was potentially the hiding place of a cruel and glinting hook that through the tender gills would pierce and rip. So you went hungry or you got the Hook. It was horrible. Fear and loathing stalked the land, (swam the currents to be precise).
