Also spelled alternately as geis[[note]]Geas is a Scottish Gaelic word pronounced as "gas" in English, and its plural is Geasa. Geis is the Irish equivalent, is pronounced "gesh", and its plural is geisi.[[/note]], a '''''geas''''' is a form of magical compulsion or curse that originates in Myth/CelticMythology. Those under a geas are required to fulfill certain conditions or risk suffering a penalty bestowed by fate. If you have more than one such geas placed upon you, and they come into conflict, you're screwed. One of the most famous cases is that of Cuchulainn, who was under numerous geasa, including that he must never eat the meat of a dog, nor refuse food offered by a woman. When an old hag offered him dog meat, he was forced to break one geas or the other, which eventually led to his death.

A geas usually takes the form of either a command or a prohibition: "You shall do this," or "You shall not do this." In practical terms, the geas may be prophetic, bringing about its own fulfillment either through manipulation of cosmic events or by simply instilling into the subject a compulsion which he cannot resist. If the geas can be broken, and is, doing so typically brings about the death of the subject, either directly or by cosmic retribution.
