In the previous update, we shared with you a story preview. Today, we want to show you some content about Celtic locations.
Many of the locations you can visit in The Waylanders are based off of real historical sites in Spain, such as the one below:
In The Waylanders, your adventure begins in the Celtic region of Kaltia, in what is now Galicia in Northwestern Spain.
Kaltia has a lot of places you can visit, rich in nuances and dissimilar from each other. Coastal villages, big forests, necropolis, underground cities, werewolves camps... Let's take a quick look to some Celtic locations you can enjoy on The Waylanders!
The capital of these lands is Brigantia, a bustling coastal city, and home to King Ith and his court. Brigantia has the largest and densest population in all of Kaltia, and The Tower, an ancient lighthouse, is located here.
Dumbriga, a smaller city to the south, is the home of the University. Druids from all over Kaltia come here to study and perfect their magical crafts. A mountain at the center of town, commonly called The Olympus of the Celts, is said to house some of the elder gods, and is off-limits to all but the most advanced Druids.
The Mourian Underworld is a vast underground network of cities and towns that spans the majority of Kaltia. There are a few large doors through which you can travel through to their society. Mourian architecture is elegant, and lavishly decorated- parts of their bodies are made of gold, but so are their homes.
The Werewolf Camp is… a camp full of werewolves! They are master hunters and enjoy trading with the outside world, but are still seen as intimidating by many humans… partially because their camps are guarded by actual wolves.
Dunnios is an enormous necropolis. It is inhabited by few living souls, and instead houses the bodies of thousands of Celtic dead from many centuries past, including the legendary King Breoghan. Dunnios is what is known as a crossroads- a place where the lines blur between the living and the dead… a place known to attract dragons…
Aunes is a charming seaside town, mostly inhabited by Goblins. The Goblins of Kaltia are mischievous, playful creatures who don’t intend harm- but they might do harm if they think it’s funny… so it’s best to be on your guard.
The Woodlands is, by far, the largest forest in the region. Small encampments and villages are littered throughout its dells and clearings. Many of the trees are said to be thousands of years old, and because of this, the area is known for being extremely magickal.
Ancares is a harsh, snowy mountain region with few permanent residents. The majority of buildings in Ancares are military forts meant to keep away the monsters that roam the tundras.
Medhu’s Peak is the only Mourian city outside of the Underworld. It is named for the ancient goddess Medhu, and is wealthy nearly beyond imagination. The gold mines here are seemingly ever-flowing, and the ancient magick is felt in the very air you breathe.
We'll give you more details about these locations in future updates. You can comment and tell us which one is your favourite!
