I tried for the bulk of my life to understand the true purpose of our lives on Earth. In my later days I am still left as unknowing as the first time I thought of it.
Earl Scott

Peter Scott was the son of Bravin, and Adala Scott making him a member of House Scott, and for his time the most important and remembered member in the House's history. Peter Scott and Marjorie Elric would have six children together in the form of Quentin, Elric, Daniel, Kieth, and Deborah Scott of which Quentin was a brave young man that was slain at the Battle of Lyons, Elric was like his elder brother in a devout Christian Knight but was also slain at the Battle of Lyons, while Daniel was a troubled young man who after being pushed out of the line of succession by Peter would lead a rebellion against his father eventually leading to Peters death and his rise to power, while Kieth would become leader of Patria and while openly resistant to his brothers rule at Tree Hill he has been protected by the royal family, while finally Doborah would be married to House Lee as a means for Daniel to gain their alliance and she has remained very loyal to her brother ever since.

Along with bringing his House into the limelight he is greatly known for being a very devout follower of Christianity and in this belief he was the main reason Christianity spread in Lucerne. During his time as leader he is known for nearly on his own using his House's wealth to build churches, and bring priests north from Rome, and his legacy was only destroyed when Tree Hill fell to the Orcs, and much of the christian churches and followers were killed.

Peter Scott was born the first child of Bravin Scott who at the time of his birth stood as a Landsgard of Patriar under the rule of House Targaryan but was the heir to Bravin at the time of his birth. As a young boy it was Peter that was heavily influenced by the Christian belief of his father and spent much of his youth balancing his squiring to becoming a knight and an avid desire to reach the Bible and become an expert in Christian Theology. Peter would join his father during the Fall of House Targaryan and while he fought against the Targaryans he also once the war was done assisted his father in protecting what remained of House Targaryan and then watched as this humility was rewarded with House Scott becoming the new Arch Lord of the Stormlands and Peter rising to become the heir of a grand state. The friendship of Emric Elric and Peter Scott would lead to Peter convincing his father to have him marry Emric's twin sister Marjorie Elric in a move that was not the most politically sound but showed Peter as a man loyal to those he trusted above the intricacies of politics. Margarie Elric would be married to Peter Scott in a large ceremony at Tree Hill that marked one of the largest Christian weddings that Tree Hill had seen and marked a change in the religious attitude of the city as christian weddings had been small affairs before this.

She looks just like Lisa. Surely you can practically see your own sister as she gets closer.
Peter Scott

Brooke Scott watches from the outer wall of Tree Hill with her grandfather Peter Scott, and grandmother Margarie Scott as her cousin Marius Scott arrives back at Tree Hill. Also on the wall watching this arrival is several prominent nobles in the form of Richard Lonmouth, and his son Victor Lonmouth as well as Renford Varryn and his son Renford Varryn II. While watching this Mace Tyrell II, and Emric Elric arrive with several of their personal guard and while Margarie continues to watch the arrival of Marius its Peter that takes Brooke's hand and brings her to the incoming noblemen alongside the Lonmouth's and Varryns. A conversation ensues where Peter asks for their support at the upcoming Feast of Tree Hill and while Emric is quick to agree to support Peter holding his cross as he gives Peter his word, its Mace that is reluctant to swear to his support. Brooke watches as the two haggle back in forth with Brooke not knowing what is in question but as Mace appears prepared to walk away its Peter that takes the group to the wall and looking down points out Matilda Lovie. Peter succeeds in having Mace agree to swear his support to him in return for Peter promising to allow Mace to send a troop of Tyrell men to guard Matilda alongside the Scott men. As she prepares to go down and meet with her cousin her grandfather leaves for the keep telling her that he must make last minute preparations for the upcoming celebration Feast that is being held in Marius honor, and then leaves with Mace Tyrell. Following her grandfather leaving its Brooke that goes with her grandmother back to the keep, where Brooke plans to meet with her friends Haley James, and Peyton Sawyer. Arriving at the keep she goes to the apartment of the Sawyers in the keep and isn't surprised to find Peyton, and Haley already together but can’t help but smile. Brooke and the girls spend the day together, with Peyton talking on and on about much she misses her betrothed and Brooke's sister Lucas and the other two just laughing at her as they both know that it won’t be long before Lucas returns from squiring at Castle Reiter and Peyton and Lucas are married.

Brooke's Discovery

Brooke Scott Cover12 - Used.jpg

I knew that my father was a less then loving father. I didn't know there was a darker part to him then that.
Brooke Scott

That night its Brooke, Haley, and Peyton that go back to her family’s estate within the keep where her two friends join her in spending the night in her room. Brooke goes to her grandfather’s room to say goodnight and finding no guards she realizes he must be away. Planning to go inside his room and write a note for him before he arrives home, she opens his door using the key that he has given her. Going to his desk to get paper to write the note she stops when she sees a document with the title of report on Daniel Scott. Brooke is too nosy to ignore the document and instead of leaving as she knows she should she decides to read it. The document details an investigation done by Tilman Fischart the Ratmann of Tree Hill. Tilman had used his influence to find out information on Daniel Scott the son of Peter and Brooke’s father. This had been in response to Peter becoming concerned about his son and worrying that Daniel was a poor choice for the future of the Stormlands. During his investigation it was Tilman that had discovered that Daniel was in fact not a Christian and had converted to a Misotheism religious belief. Documents were found by Tilman in the private quarters of Daniel that detailed this philosophy, and this was confirmed unknowingly by Daniel himself when during the investigation it was Daniel that revealed his agreement with the text. The investigation also uncovered that Daniel had significant business involvement with House Nighting and this further showed the moral decay of Daniel Scott. Reading this caused Brooke to flee the room in a rush returning to her own room where she tried to sleep but the knowledge of what she had just learned about her father led to her tossing and turning all night.

Picking Sides
This will feel like I am declaring war on you Daniel. I am not. I love you son. I love you enough that I do not want to put you into a position where you will fail.
Peter Scott

Having been in and out of sleep all night the chirping of the birds at her window leads to her getting up before Haley and Peyton are awake and leaving her room for her grandfather’s office. Knowing he barely sleeps she hopes to find him in his office and seeing guards at his office doors its confirmed that hes inside. The guards who she knew as the palace guardsmen Gadaric of Scott, and Theodemar of Trensdale would tell her that she had to wait to go in as he was in a meeting. Surprised that he would be meeting so early she sat on the bench across from the door. After several minutes it was the door that opened and several men exited the room including a knight she didn’t recognize, her grandfathers personal guard Fridigarn Waldenbint. As her grandfather exited the room another man followed him who she recognized as baron Ralph Guntbold, as well as a young girl that Brooke believed was Ralphs daughter Lanna Guntbold. She watched as her grandfather and Ralph shook hands in a move that surprised her because she knew Ralph to be a close friend of her father who having read the letter, she knew would put her grandfather and Daniel on two different sides of the politics of the Stormlands. As the group departs down the hallway its Peter that invites Brooke into his office, and she follows behind him sharing a brief smile with Fridigarn. Closing the door behind her its Peter that tells her that he knows she read the letter about her father. He says that the letter was moved and her coming here now tells him that it was her that looked at it. She admits to seeing the letter and the two discuss his understanding that this puts her in a bad position, but Peter convinces her that he loves Daniel but cannot allow him to become the leader of the Stormlands after he’s gone.

This will feel like I am declaring war on you Daniel. I am not. I love you son. I love you enough that I do not want to put you into a position where you will fail.
Peter Scott

Understanding the logic of what hes saying the two share a hug where Peter tells her he loves her, and Brooke promises her grandfather that she won’t reveal what she read. Leaving Peter’s office, she goes back to her room where she finds Peyton and Haley are reading, but they both stop when she comes back. Unable to tell even her best friends what she learned she lies to them and goes to reading with them, but her mind is wandering as she does. Haley and Peyton eventually return to their homes leaving Brooke alone. Left alone she quickly leaves her room and finding Fridigarn she tricks him into telling her where the Guntbold’s are staying in the city. Learning they are staying in secret at his personal apartments in the Sea Gate its Brooke that leaves the keep going to speak with Lanna Guntbold. Arriving at the Seagate of Tree Hill she enters the Waldenbint estate and finds Lanna in the courtyard sitting alone reading a book.

The Speech

This will feel like I am declaring war on you Daniel. I am not. I love you son. I love you enough that I do not want to put you into a position where you will fail.
Peter Scott

The speech details that he plans to vote at this meeting to change the succession laws of the Stormlands to Tanistry, and he makes it clear that the reason for this is to keep Daniel from becoming the new lord after he dies. Taylor watches as the hall erupts into anger over this as those who support Peter fight with those who support Daniel, but as the yelling reaches its pinnacle its Marius that smashes the bell causing the whole room to stop and stare at him. Marius delivers a speech describing his view on the future of the Stormlands and playing even more at the fears people have over Daniel he successfully forces Daniel to stand his men down lest he look like the man they are accusing him of being. Daniel leaves the room with several of his most ardent supporters leaving Marius and most of the diet to remain behind and listen as Marius continues to talk of the positives that the Stormlands has in front of it.

Taylor Discovered
Do you think this is funny? Have a told a joke to you little girl? Am I wearing the clothes of a jester? Trust me the next time I see you, I will show what a joke I am.
Daniel Scott

As they continue watching the speech it is a door that slams open and as Daniel comes through, Clayton, Nathan, Taylor and Lilly flee but Taylor trips and is noticed by Daniel. Daniel sees that she was looking through the window and realizing that she saw his embarrassment firsthand he verbally attacks her leaving her in tears, but as Nathan prepares to come out of his hiding spot, she waves him away instead taking the abuse. After Daniel finally tires of this abuse, he grabs her by the shirt ripping her top as he drags her back through the door and throws her onto the other side locking it behind her. Taylor is taken out of the keep by a man at arm as was ordered by Daniel and taken outside the gates of the keep she is not sure what to do as she barely knows the city outside of the tour that Nathan gave her. Knowing that her family as a small apartment in the city where her uncle Hank James lives with his family, she asks the guard where the property is but he refuses to help her and demands she cross the Bridge of Saint Reginald, and crying she watches him struggle with his order, and then as continues to cry, he goes to her and pretends to drag her away but instead whispers to her the location of her uncles apartment. Going through the streets she gets help from different vendors on the street and successfully makes her way to the apartment of her uncle and knocking on the door she is greeted by her aunt Mary James, and cousin Gloria James. Without a word her aunt pulls her into a hug and unable to speak as she begins crying again her aunt takes her to her room and lays her down staying with her while rubbing her back and taking care of her as best, she can.

The First Battle of Tree Hill

Siege of Forks

Siege of Forks.jpg

"Forks was the center of the Kingdom of Lucerne, and in a lot of ways the only city that even approached Lucerne in terms of importance. To see its walls assailed by Greenskins was a horrifying sight that I hope I never see again."
-Charlie Swan

While 80% of the Orc army attacked Tree Hill, the other 20% split off and attempted to stage the same sort of ambush on Forks. The only difference was Tree Hill relied on the Western Scout towers because its western side was a mountainy area where it was difficult to see movement, while Forks had a near 360 degree view of attackers. Gaurds on the wall noticed the attacking Orcs long before they closed in, and thus managed to sound the alarm and shut the gate. Witht the gates shut and the forces of Forks arranging on the walls, the Orcs found themselves in a killing zone outside the walls, and what few did manage to place ladders against the walls were repulsed with heavy casualties on both sides, but the defences held without much problem. As the Orcs massed for another assault on the walls with ladders, a large cavalry force would arrive from House Clegane from the north, and alongside a sortie from House Swan's forces the Orcs were massacred as they attemtped to flee from these two forces.

Religion

Peter Scott brought Christianity which at the time was a completely obscure religion in the Kingdom to the forefront. He used his wealth to build churces throughout Tree Hill , as well as hiring for monks from Italy come and be the practishioners of these churches.
