Description from the packaging.

A great tale has just begun...

Long ago, in the days when Ireland was far removed from the mainland civilizations of Europe, the early Celtic tribes were locked in a bitter war with the Other World. The tribes of Eire were joined as one people, the Tuatha de Danann. Their Other World enemies, who lurked offshore of the island were known as Fomors- their powerful leader, Balor of the Evil Eye.

Enter Celtic Tales amidst the turbulent struggle to save the tribes of Eire from Balor's evil. Tired and broken, your people have little left to give to the struggle. Regarded as an intruder, your task is to rebuild the land, strengthen the tribes and become High Ruler of Eire. Then with your trusting champions, you must seek out the magical Runes, some of which are locked in Balor's grasp. Once in your possession, the Runes will empower your Bards and Druids with the magic needed to force the Fomors back to the Other World!

  • Battle enemies of the Other World to become High Ruler.
