    Actually 5 pictures, designed to give a feel for the Picts and a sample from the Art Book (part of the CE edition of the game)

    I like the look of the Dagger :)

    Being the picts defeated the Romans and had a huge navy I kinda picture them being armed with more than pointy sticks.

    You are quite correct. I was being a bit negative after a dissapointing technical beta night - could not PVP as well as the tutorial quest (

    The picts had a navy? Their piracy was purely coastal and more akin to boat raiding. Their neighbors, the Gaels, were likely more advanced and even they had no "navy." At best, Picts were at the level of Gaels in nearly all facets of culture and had possibly acquired their best equipment from Britons and Gaels. When the vikings (Danes mostly) arrived, what little ragtag tribal kingdoms they possessed were smashed. Within three generations their entire civilization was nearly extinguished.

    Age of Conan takes place about 8000 years before the roman empire...

    The picts he was referring to were obviously the ones from the "real" world of proto-gaelic history, not Howard's, which were simply based upon them, hence my post also based (and not coincidentally) on the Picts of the "real" world's history.

    Picts in the world of Conan are based on historical fact that has actually been modified since Howard died and are much more barbaric and primitive than what is know commonly accepted by historians.

    Alright, i won't argue with the historical facts. But since this is a game based on a fantasy-world its not really required that its based on correct historical facts, even if its inspired by the real world. So it doesnt matter if the picts in Conan is more primitive and brutal then the historical ones, wich is what the discussion started with.
