Those local to Cincinnati, Ohio may know that the city was named after Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, the ancient Roman statesmen and farmer who is reported to have lived from 519 BC to 430 BC. George Washington was often compared to Cincinnatus due to various parallels, and the city of Cincinnati was supposedly named thus in honor of Washington . . . but Washington was no sorcerer.
For those who can pierce the veil of time and space, and enter a world filled with magic and imagination, a very different story lies beneath the surface of this Cincinnatus history. It is a tale of two witches, a wizard, and the inventor they met during the Ranarvir War of 1786. It is a story of survival, resolutions, and how they finally settled in the Miami Valley to form the Cincinnatus Academy of Science & Sorcery.
There are many mysteries that surround the school, and some will be revealed over the next few weeks . . . but others will be discovered this March when the Cincinnatus Academy of Science & Sorcery plays host to the 2019 International Steampunk Symposium.
