The Celts are the nation of humans living on Gratogel. They came to Albion about 2000 years ago. They speak Celtic.

Mellthas, a Celt formerly living in Arjano.


The Celts say they are not native to Albion, that their ancestors entered the world at the Qrenno.


The Celts live in tribes which they call tuath. These tribes include the community of all clans and their families. Tribal kings are their local rulers and are seen as embodiment of the tribe. Their main task is to ensure harmony between the people an the land.

Druids are scholars of the Celts. They perform a variety of tasks, acting as priests, historians, teachers, healers and judges. Some of them have the gift of magic.

There are few true warriors among the Celts, as any man becomes a warrior in times of war, but most of them have another profession in times of peace. There are craftsmen such as potters, fabric weavers or basket weavers. The weapon smiths are special, as they all belong to the Umajo. Farmer, fisherman, trader and sailor are other common professions.

Owning cattle is a sign of wealth. People of high rank usually own cattle, which they can lease to their followers, called ceile. In return for payment and the lease of cattle, ceiles relinquish part of their legal rights and are obligated to yield their vote to their leader during meetings.


The Celts have many gods. The greatest are Lugh, the great god of business, travellers and trade, and Danu, the great Goddess and mother who is embodied by Albion itself. In addition, there are the gods of farmers, craftsmen, poets and warriors, as well as a number of minor gods honored by their district's inhabitants. Concerning life after death, the Celts believe they will live again in another wondrous land.


Colors and symbols are very important to the Celts. Symbols contain intricate lines, which appear symmetrical, but turn out not to be upon closer examination, and forms which can appear to be ornaments at one moment and depictions the next. The greatest works of art can lend magical powers to objects through their symbols.

Poets are held in high regard. They are even feared by powerful warriors, as the Celts are well aware how a well-aimed satirical verse can damage a reputation as much as an inglorious defeat.
