The Legendary Kingdom of Prester John
This official Ars Magica sourcebook takes the magi past the equatorial Ring of Fire to the strange and wondrous Lands South of the Sun - a mythic place legendary in the medieval mind. From their iron citadels, the Colossi of Dis rule their demon-haunted hills; the Queen of Niabia, monarch of the last refugees of ancient Carthage, leads Juno's rites of worship; and Good King Prester John strives to forge a legacy of a united, Christian realm. Stranger wonders abound - from the mysterious river Physon, whose banks are lined with Jewels, to the fearsome Sphinxes of the Veldt, and the enigmatic dream-sorcerers of the Horn Jungles.
Experience fantasy with a new twist: A medieval vision of mythic Africa, laden with magic and mystery, extraordinary challenges - and appropriate rewards - for the Order of Hermes.
