The Mariana Trench or Marianas Trench is the deepest part of the world's oceans, roughly seven miles down[2] or 36,000 feet below sea-level.[7] At its bottom, the pressure is over 1,000 atmospheres.[4]

To the Atlanteans, it is known as Harran's Rift,[6] presumably after King Harran, son of Kamuu, founder of the kingdom of Atlantis.

It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Mariana Islands.



In the 1930s, the Swift Tide, an elite team of warrior women from various sea peoples, were exiled to the depths of the Mariana Trench after being corrupted into the "Black Tide" by the Unforgotten Stone,[8][9] an artifact said to contain the malice, power, and possibly souls of Great Old Ones.[10]
