The underwater realms of Kcymaerxthaere have equally amazing stories as the terrestrial ones. This place is especially interesting because it is a location that started above water. The Unsoiling of Rockall was an incredible act of non-violent (at least to organisms–mostly, until they had no place to go), but it had profound unintended consequences. Because there was so much soil displaced, Mlates and her cohorts ended up filling in the spaces between many archipelagoes–most notably the one that was the site of linear Edinburgh.
It is off the Garvallach Islands, about an hour’s steaming from Oban.
No public dedication–we lowered it to the bottom and the diver untied it, seated it properly and the job was done.
This was Kcymaerxthaere installation #042 and the sixth in what we call the United Kingdom–and the first one to be installed underwater.

The part of the story installed here:
The Unsoiling of Rockall
At the time of the Rockall Ascendancy, here rose the most easterly point of that great island (larger than what we call Britain and Ireland together—both then ruled too by Rockall’s Royal Family). But royal arrogance and decadence finally provoked an epic uprising. A wave of citizens—Mlates gi Dunhuira, Elvid Makran, and Esther Tabran among them—began removing the soil and substance of Rockall, hurling it into the sea, ultimately leaving under royal thrall only the tiny waveswept nub still known today by the ancient name.
