The Damocles Gulf is a series of worlds in the Tau Empire sector of space. The Damocles Crusade was fought between the Tau Empire and the Imperium, and was the first time the two forces met militarily. Previously the Tau had been unaware of the true size of the Imperium. Despite the Ethereals' instructions that the Gulf was to be off-limits to the Tau, Commander Farsight has established colonies there, known as the Farsight Enclaves, which have severed contact with the Tau Empire.[Needs Citation]

The Tau again launched a major expedition across the Gulf in 999.M41, initiating the Prefectia Campaign.[1]

Following the Second Agrellan Campaign, the Adeptus Mechanicus unleashed an exotic weapon of such magnitude that Mu'gulath Bay had to be abandoned. The destruction set across the entire Damocles Gulf, setting it ablaze and effectively separating the Imperium from the Tau.[2]
