23 Pytheas Project Pathfinder

Ancient maps show that the world was once comprised of titanic landmasses – whole continents that no longer exist, swallowed by long ago cataclysms, perhaps. As it stands, civilization resides now upon many archipelagos and a smattering of large islands in addition to the two known continents. Still, above and below the ocean may be found treasures and wonders of the previous ages. As a recruit of the Pytheas Project you’re just the sort of danger-seeking lunatic to go in search of them. Raging storms and starvation be damned.


  • A Map of the World, or, rather, of parts of it, probably highly inaccurate. Don’t let that stop you. Update it with your findings.
  • A Compass which doesn’t really do you much good since the magnetic field of the world is unreliable at best. Still, it’s part of the look.
  • A Ceramic Sword.
  • Diving Gear.
