How do you pronounce:
Fir Bolg
Muintir Nemid
Mil Éspaine
Tuath Dé

(I'm German. Know nothing about Irish names.)

Hello Michael !

Feel free to pronounce it the way you like. The names are based on celtic tribe names, nevertheless modified and distorted.

We didn't want to depict real historical circumstances, nor did we take over all legendary terms exactly.

Hope this answer helps a bit !

Cheers

I suggest consulting Celtic mythology books in your language. Or Wikipedia.
You will find all the four tribes there with their names in your language.

For example, as far as I know, Tuatha should be pronounced as Tua, but in the Russian-language tradition it's Tuata. So that's what I call them in every-day speech. But in my translation for the game they will be Tua. With explanation given in brackets.
