The Wild Hunt

The Celtic Mythos of Deities and Demigods

Our celebration of the art of this wonderful book continues. Over the last few weeks we have looked at the Babylonian Mythos, American Mythos and the Arthurian Heroes, today I would like to show you the art from the section on the Celtic Mythos.

This section was a popular one and we had a few adventures in Druid-heavy Celtic worlds. I especially love the Wild Hunt which has a nice featured place in one of my favorite modules, “Castle Amber”.

One thought on “The Celtic Mythos of Deities and Demigods

  1. Atari Adventure Square says:

    While we didn’t make much use of this book in our campaigns, its content expanded the horizons of possibility within the realms of AD&D to a point where I’d say it was the most precious artifact in our stash of tomes.

    Fiend Folio gave us the additional monsters we needed to add zest to the sessions, but Deities and Demigods’ other-worldly offerings basically gave us our motto “Everything is possible”.

    Actually I think we did test out the Demigod waters in a few experimental test runs.
    The Babylonian realm might have been breached.
    But our Greyhawk campaign remained mortal-based.

    Been so long. Might have dream and practical campaigns mixed up.
    But it was a glorious time to be an active player (or DM, in my case).
    Still is, with websites offering multi-player opportunities.
    Wonder if you could have flames or clouds in the background of your cam feed if you play a god or such.
    Sure there’s an app for that.
