* Forlorn in the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' setting is a mountainous, rainy realm that has a language based on Gaelic, was once part of a country that also included the Western Highlands, and even has a StockNessMonster.

The other (extant) group of Celts are the Brythonics, who inhabit Wales, Brittany and Cornwall.
