The Tuatha Dé Danann came into Ireland as a thousand heroes, skilled in every art so that it was said their victory was assured. Among these heroes there was one that they knew as Champion. Ogma. This warrior was said to stand in strength above all others and it was he who tested Lugh in this manner when the young king came to Tara.
Still for all of his physical prowess, Ogma was also a man of words. The scholarly arts were his to call upon so much so that it was by his working that Ireland's first written language was formed. A series of straight and diagonal lines joining or crossing a main central line is the form in which this script can be found. Even today, the landscape of Ireland is still covered in stone bearing the marks of this ancient writing, many marking the boundaries of territory, or the grave sights of notable people long since lost to the world of the living.
Ogham is a script of simplistic elegance and near unfathomable meaning. Each carving of lines indicating more than just a letter in a alphabet. Each of these shapes offer us a key to exploring a world of concepts and ideals, and that is before one even gets to the insights of combining these letters into words. It was Ogma himself who defined the birth of this ancient writing saying that Sound and Matter are the Mother and Father of the Ogham.
