Campaign of the Month: February 2017
The Nemetondevos god of battle lust and victory
The god of unbridled destruction and victory on the battlefield, Camulos is an unconquerable force, a warrior figure so powerful that no Gaulish fighter ever dared enter combat without seeking his aid first. The incredible ferocity of his attacks and tactics is legendary, but even more than that he is a cunning and frighteningly canny foe, able to launch surprise attacks and utilize never-before-seen strategies to confound and rout his enemies, who find everything suddenly going wrong for them.
Camulos and Ares
Ares, the Greek god of slaughter and bloodshed, is Camulos’ greatest personal enemy; the two gods clashed many times on the battlefield when the Romans invaded Gaul, and though neither overcame the other Camulos was subjected to the grave insult of the Romans renaming him and his worshipers as servants of Mars, systematically eradicating his worship from the area. Ares, with his inability to think beyond the moment, also infuriates him with his lack of intelligence and reason, and he goes out of his way to ruin the other god’s plans and desires wherever possible. It is largely due to Camulos that the Greco-Turkish war over the island nation of Cyprus continues even to this day, and despite the attempts of gentler gods like Belenos and Nantosuelta to calm him, it is likely that he will take every opportunity to destroy his hated enemy and his children.
