--> '''Fomor Chief Balor''', game intro

A long time ago, the proud people of the island of Eire lived peacefully under the watchful eyes of goddess Danu.

But one day, Eire was invaded by fomors, conquering the island, scattering the tribes, razing everything in their way, all under the evil eye of their leader, Balor.

By Goddess Danu's request, your task is to unite the tribes, become their High Ruler and free Eire by killing Balor and banishing his fomor devils back to the underworld from which they came from.

Made in 1995 by {{Creator/Koei}} as part of their Imagination series, ''Celtic Tales: Balor of the Evil Eye'' (''Celtic Crusade'' in Japan) is a TurnBasedStrategy with RPGElements set on Ireland during the times of Myth/CelticMythology.
