Overview[]

Ireland[]

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic; the second largest in the British Isles. Politically, it is divided between the Republic of Ireland, which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, in the northeast of the island. Irish culture has had a significant influence on other cultures, especially in the fields of literature. Alongside mainstream Western culture, a strong indigenous culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music, and the Irish language.

Brian Boru[]

Brian Boru was an Irish king who ended the domination of the High Kingship of Ireland by the Uí Néill. Building on the achievements of his father, Cennétig mac Lorcain, and especially his elder brother, Mathgamain, Brian first made himself King of Munster, then subjugated Leinster, eventually becoming King of Ireland. He was the founder of the O'Brien dynasty.

Dawn of Man[]

"Good blessings to you, Brian Boru, High King of Ireland. Ireland is a bountiful land of song and drink. Overseen by meek lords, you rose to claim the High Kingship, submitting the isles and her hundred kings to your sovereignty. A patron of the Church and the monasteries, you secured your throne both in blood and in faith, and set the stage for your final battle and the successful repulsion of the viking invaders.

The bards await your next great deed, O' legendary High King, Brian Boru. Can you bring glory and inspiration to their verses? Can you secure your dominion through alliance and conquest? Can you build a civilization that stands the test of time?"

Introduction: "Ahah! Welcome to my kingdom! I am Brian Boru. What do they call you?"

Introduction: "This is Ireland! I hope you handle your drink well, because tonight we feast in celebration of our new friendship!"

Defeat: "The bards will sing songs about this battle. I may have lost! But Ireland will be preserved in verse!"

Defeat: "I need a drink..."
