For those looking to come in as part of a clan, there are several groups already here in Travance to get with (McInnes, McKraegor, MacKenzie to name three) and a list of surviving Highland Clans from the Daemon War versus Xualla.

Those interested in one of the Survivor Clans, please contact me for a list. Alternately, send me a Clan Name and I can give you its status as of the last revision (2014) along with its current politics (if any).

For those coming in Black Watch Tartans.... There is a Black Watch entity in the Highlands and they too have a bit of history as well as a piece of Garb requirement (besides the Kilt) if you wish to be part of one of their Companies. Please contact me for particulars.

Hello,
I am a new Celt. How would I go about becoming part of a clan? How do I find other Celts?
I am a new dragoon.

General for Public Knowledge, Becoming part of a clan is as easy as selecting a tartan and the name of the Clan associated with said tartan.

While there are more than a few already in game (McGregor, MacKenzie to name two), coming in with a clan of your own selection is fine. THe Highlands is a fairly large location to be from.

Finding other Celts.... while at game is easy- all of us wear Kilts (its part of the RP requirement) unless someone is in deep cover and chooses to wear "leg prisons".

I will send you some info via PM- its info on surviving clans post Xualla war (updated two years ago) and their political stance if any.

As for coming in as a dragoon, Asking around looking for Elder Dragoons works- though if you are coming from the Highlands, there are a few who you may know of already. I'll toss that info to you in PM.

Welcome to the Game, Lass...

I'm planning on playing a Celtic Bard from the Highlands who, along with several non-Celt friends started a Mercenary Guild (we haven't decided on a name in life). He did this because, while he loves his home in the Highlands and his clan, he has always wanted to see and do more. He views himself as a collector of life experience. The colors of my kilt are green and navy if that helps to find me a clan.

Merc Company eh? Sounds good...

Knowing the tartan you are using, there are many on-line resources to look up what Clan has that tartan. For this, Google is a tried and true friend. :)

Dunbar, Grant and the Black Watch (variant of Campbell which is REALLY close) are three to look at to see if they match what you have. Hopefully I see you next event!

That helps a lot, thank you. The Black Watch tartan looks the most like my own. Campbell itself also has a very similar tartan. Could you send me a list of the surviving clans?

Yes, wearing kilts on the game ground is comfortable and make easy to play with. I am totally agree
Kilts from sport kilt are the best.

McKraegar clan does not have a unifying tartan they have many different minor clans swearing Allegiance so no unifying tartan. We are more Irish in nature then the traditional Scottish take.

another option is Stilwater kilts, listed in the links. they have piper's plaids, which are great for those who wear chain or full armors, and one of their basic kilts is around 30 bucks, but beware they have no beltloops.
