Body Armour as Celts

Equip Armour: Failed. Young Celtic warriors didn't wear body armour.

I'm assuming I remain young throughout the game? :P

And that being the case, is there any point at all to keeping the best chain mail I find? Can I recruit Romans in Vanarium? Are they any good?

I haven't been to Vanarium yet, you see - I have not yet been able to bring myself to dare the long darkness of the path of the Ritual of...

Nethergate was there before OS X, and it remains the most expensive Spiderweb game.

The different atmosphere is probably worth it, though. (This is a reference to part 3 of Jeff's The View From Below or whatever the name was.)

Cormac the Druid, the "ancient" wise woman in the creepy corner of Nethergate, the three crones and their dungeon, Pearlblossom. Even the hermits, ffs... There is nothing more valorous than challenging the mainstream!

Reassurances,

In D&D there are lots of gods. Some of them are Jesus Christ and Lucifer, and they have equal power. Players can choose either to worship one of them, and as most of them find it funny, they choose to worship Lucifer. It is one of the ways how pure souls are taken by the devil...

You can recruit a Roman warrior in Vanarium, and he's pretty good (read : he's very useful). There is no way to make your Celt Warriors/Druids wear body armor.

As a band of Celts though, I find that the extra party member isn't that useful at all. The Romans need the extra character to make spells a viable option, but the Celts can mix melee with magic quite effectively already.

Actually, all the characters recruited in Vanarium can wear armor. That includes the two Celts, one of whom will join a band of Celts and the other of whom will only join Romans. Go figure.

I agree that the Celts have less need of a fifth character, though. Your only choice is another fighter of some kind, and that fifth character is stuck in the back. With armor, the character will also be slower. That means that fifth character won't get into the battle until your lead bashers have already torn your enemies to pieces, usually.

You might want to hold off on registering Nethergate, because Jeff seems to be doing some sort of restoration on it. He has promised some sort of OS change, new content, and maybe some other things.

That's exactly why I haven't bothered to register.

Nethergate is still only $15 when purchased with another Spiderweb game. Unless you're going to get an Intel Mac soon and won't be able to run Classic at all, I highly recommend Nethergate now instead of some nebulous superior Nethergate at an indeterminate time in the future.

—Alorael, who need not mention the collector's value of the original Nethergate. Why, some people might be willing to pay $30 for it some day!
