The Celtiberians have the Power of Defence. They replace the Maya.
In contrast to their war-mongering and cattle driving Celtic neighbours to the north, the Celtiberians live in a highly cultured and sophisticated society with substantial urbanisation in some areas. However, as much as they may enjoy the spectacular mineral wealth of their lands and the best of both the Celtic and Iberian worlds, the Celtiberians are a society divided and often at loggerheads at each other, marking them as easy prey for alien powers stirring beyond the seas or poised to march down from the mountains of the Vasci in the north.
Unity must be achieved at all costs, for the enemies of the Celtiberians are amassing, and they will be many, but fortunately the Celtiberian tribes are highly sophisticated and are known to live in large cities of stone throughout the Iberian lands. Such an acquaintance with the ways of fortification and architecture may yet prove useful to any tribal chieftain who has his eyes set on uniting the tribes under his rule — and resisting the inroads of the foreigners who have begun to take an ever greater interest in the conquest of his lands and those of his neighbours.
