This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

From Ambrosia Software's description page:

Cythera casts you as the legendary saviour of a violently divided nation. Sensing the impending downfall of the King, the ruling houses of Cythera struggle for political power in the ancient land. Some will stop at nothing to seize control.

While the houses labor to increase their own power, the neutral mages struggle for a higher consciousness and the betterment of humanity. They envision a world free from treachery and deceit. These students of the magick arts anxiously await the return of Alaric's mystical powers, as well as the end of the land's deadly slide toward chaos. But even they are unaware of the underlying tragedy which prepares to strike the land.

To me, this is one of the best RPGs for the classic Mac, period. It's Ultima VII in disguise. Too bad it wasn't as successful as it could have been, had they not continuously delayed the release until 1999.

I agree; it's so sad that Ambrosia has faded away. Back in their heyday, they were a pretty big part of classic Mac gaming.

Despite its age, Cythera retains a fairly active community of fans at the Cythera Web Board on Ambrosia's forums. Not to shamelessly self-promote Tongue, but I figure anyone looking into Cythera may also be interested in checking out Cythera Guides for a lot of other useful information.

Ambrosia Software used to publish some great RPGs. It's a pity they disappeared, almost overnight. Sad
