Phewwfff. That was one long read, and I read it all. That must've took you ages to compile, I congratulate you greatly. Where did you get so much information. I noticed you also mentioned Dalriada in your history.
I think Bede shouldv'e mentioned the battle of Degsestan more in his writings. It wouldv'e made my life so much easier.
Well done on creating this and with so much background. I still havn't played (parents won't let me play games on week nights-too much coursework)
Again Congratulations and I'm sure your many ratings will show this.
