The Sunya is a fantasy realm created by Adam H.C. Myrie, born out of his passion for the multiplicity of cultures and civilizations that inhabited the content of Africa. Taking inspiration from different civilizations in different time periods, ranging from a stone age history to the magnificent palaces of the middle ages, the stories of this world tell the many tales that make up the history of an ancient people and their many tribes.

The Sunya is an ancient land with thousands of years of history. It is a diverse land with high, majestic mountains, scorching deserts, and seemingly endless swaying grasslands. Its people are passionate, spiritual, and courageous. Over the many millenia, the Sunsha, the people that make up the many clans and tribes of the Sunya, struggle against the elements and themselves to grow, develop, and build a relationship with their gods and their ancestors. Walk with them through these stories as they tell us of their many great heroes, who saw themselves through the kinds of trials and tribulations that create legends.

Adam H.C. Myrie is an award winning writer with decades of experience writing for the stage, print, and online publications. Adam draws from his love of African history, medieval poetry, and the great writings of antiquity as inspiration for his work. Adam is also a performer of traditional African storytelling, recounting the great deeds of ancient heroes and sharing ancient knowledge through the retelling of stories passed down countless generations. Adam is a founding member of the Historical African Martial Arts Association, and regularly produces articles on African history. A lover of history and martial arts, he has taught workshops on the martial traditions of North Africa, including Modern Tahtib, El Matreg, and North African Saber both in Canada and the United States.
