The Nine Journeys of Kynthia


"The Nine Journeys of Kynthia" (or "The Kynthiad," for short) is a solo RPG campaign set in the Bronze Age Mediterranean world. This story is contemporary with the Trojan War, the reign of Ramesses II, and the Hebrew Exodus, and draws from both the mythology and the real history of these regions.
