Through the myths of time comes the Fomor chess set. In a time when feuding was a way of life the Fomor ruled the land. They were a highly organised Celtic race having risen from the earth they were at one with it. They were known for their ability to reap the greatest reward from the land and were on a constant quest for more land. This lead them into many battles between themselves and others using what weaponry they could muster they took to the field. The pawns using a small dagger and an axe lead the advance while the knights with their large axe and shield kept the rear guard, the bishops or druids in league with the animals used their incantations to protect the warriors, the King and Queen drawing power from the earth used herbs and potions to strengthen them for battle and heal their wounds.
