Romans or Celts? in Nethergate

I've almost finished the game as Celts. Is it worth replaying as Romans? I get the impression that the two parties are sort of playing alongside each other simultaneously with occasional crossover going on, so playing as either side will show the story from their perspective. And that's pretty cool, I guess.

On the other hand, it's kind of boring to play a buncha zealously patriotic soldier-drones and have the game constantly narrate your emotional reactions (something that bugged me loads about Geneforge). For a style that focuses so much on projecting your own identity into the characters, it really kind of limits that ability. I dig Romans and everything, but the prospect of fighting to destroy entire races of crazy-cool nutjob druids and ancient faerie people and other awesomeness for the glory of Emperor Nero leaves me somewhat cold.

Now, if it had been Julius Caesar...

Huh. I don't think I even noticed any difference after I got it removed. Maybe I got some nifty equipment around that time or something and just attributed monsters' sudden killability to that.

The Celtic afterlife really seems like it kinda sucks. Do all the same **** you did in life, except you have no spiritual incentive and you can never go out, ever. For a race that was completely bat**** insane and into heavy drug use, they really don't seem to have had a lot of imagination. Even the Wicker Man, which at first seems kind of awesome, basically just boils down to "Put some dudes into a thing shaped like a dude so that it makes, like, one big dude".

edit- This forum has swear filters. My elegant prose is RUINED by PHILISTINES.

Edit: Swearing about the autocensor is also not a good Idea. Please refrain from using profanity in the future.

Oh, such wisdom you speak! :(

I finally found his stupid lair. He looks like a teapot. Thank yous to all my new internet dragon-thread buddies. Now I am uncursed!

Did that curse actually do anything at all, besides make certain hoomans snub you?

Oh, um, to save making a new topic... can someone also tell me where to train in Woodcraft? I don't have much so I can't do a bunch of things. I fail at being a crazy pagan.

There is, like, so not. Course I thought of hidden passage already, first thing I checked for. But I just bonked my face on many walls. :(

Guess I'll just go and do it some MORE!

I can't find him. He sucks. I went to his lair, called Main Entrance on my automap, and he appeared (invisibly!) to say something like, "Ah humans, you are so lame, find my lair and perhaps I will talk to you". Is this not your lair? Okay. All the signs saying KEEP OUT LAIR OF REPTRAKOS sort of misled me I guess.

Now I can't do nothin'. The area contains one corpse and a high ledge, apparently leading to the rest of the lair, which I can't reach. Searched all over! No dragon! Hate him. SO MUCH.

Walkthrough says "REPTRAKOS' LAIR (6) When you enter, Reptrakos won't seem so happy. Search around, and get Gobo to join you". Who or what is Gobo? Am I in the wrong place? I must be in the wrong place. But it's the only place! Gragh.

Help me find dragon?
