    Post World of Goria

    I was digging through some old gaming boxes and came across a minis game called Celtos. Really cool looking map (and artwork). I think the game is out of print. I found an image online, so I thought I'd share it



    Sample artwork:

    Nice map. I wish it was a little bit bigger so I could see the fine details a bit better.
    Cheers,

    They're both pretty classic names from Celtic mythology and culture.

    I will try to scan my copy so you can get a better look.

    I think this is pretty educational. If you put up a scan see if you can find the copyright information with the original and post it too.

    I cant say for certain but google says the artist for the game was christope madura.


    Just a thought

    Post I know Fir Bolgs!

    Not sure on Anywn, at the top of my head, but of Celtic Lore, I know Fir Bolgs. Not to mention that Fir Bolgs was a class of giant in D&D 1e - 3e, probably 4e as well.

    Fir Bolgs were the human inhabitants of Ireland, when the Tuatha de Danaan arrived. (The Tuatha de Danaan eventually became the gods of Celtic lore.) The Tuatha de Danaan worked with some of the Fir Bolgs in a positive relationship at the start. Eventually Crom, the one-eyed King of the Fir Bolgs, broke the agreement and warred onto the Tuatha de Danaan. The Fir Bolgs were eventually defeated. After which a disease wiped out most of the Tuatha de Danaan. The Celts apparently landed on Ireland just after this.

    In fact, one of the Celtic gods, the teacher of the Tuatha de Danaan, was Lugh the Long-handed who was a Fir Bolg and not Celt.

    So Fir Bolgs are a very old Celtic tradition, at least several thousand years old. (Feer Vulag is the Celtic pronunciation.)

    Annwn (and variant spellings) is from Welsh mythology. Annwn was the underworld associated with the dead as well as with riches and magic. It was sometimes conceived of as beneath the sea or on an island.
