    I doubt there are any 'true' Celts left in this part of the world, unless they live up a mountain and have no contact with the anyone, and Scotland has been invaded and colonised by the Irish, Norse and English. I view cultural identity more as a process of osmosis rather than something that's fixed by bloodlines, but no doubt there are some who will vehemently disagree with such a heretical notion.:D

    And cold beers are always welcome.:draught:

    Ah well...that's what some people say about Greeks too...that we are "Turk spawns" but that doesn't make any sense actually if you view it culturally and historically.But anyway...since the doctors told me to stop drinking beer for some time can you please drink my 4 McFarland bottles that I have in the fridge? :/

    Do you like Axes or swords mostly?What kind of axes and swords?Do you like Conan?

    Let me guess...your favorite class is Warrior,right?

    I'm sure if I investigated my forebears I'd find all sorts of surprises, but the Celtic culture is ingrained in me through familiarity (my mother is Irish) so that's the one I'm comfortable with. Plus, growing up in Ireland, it's hard to keep it from seeping into your soul however hard you try.:) (And thanks: I'm always willing to drink other people's beer:draught:)

    I'm not a keen weapons collector, but I do have an axe hanging on my wall which was forged by a blacksmith friend of mine many years ago. And I am indeed a fan of Howard (though not of those risible movies).

    And when I used to play D&D I always chose Rogue. I don't know why, they're quite weak, but sneaking about has always appealed to me. Maybe I've go a criminal nature.:p

    I have a beautiful katana and a wakizashi with a cobra head and a snake seath.

    I also have a western type medieval sword though it's all black.And a eastern type greek/turkish like sword or long knife you could say made by a cretan knife smith.

    Chocolate is bad...it causes spots and hyperactivity. It's practically a moral obligation to keep it to myself.:p

    *sighs* On your own head be it.

    *hands over all the chocolate*

    Don't blame me if you become fat and spotty!
