Tree Hill is a large city within the Kingdom Of Lucerne of which is the capital of the Grand State of Tree Hill. Once the largest city in Lucerne it was struck by betrayal from King Bill Lovie and left in ruins, but under relief from King William it has regained some of this population and is no longer in ruins. House Scott is the Lord of the city of Tree Hill, and because of the position of the city they stand as Arch Lord's within the Kingdom of Lucerne.

The city of Tree Hill is known as Tree Hill due to its layout being built around eight large hills with the main part of the city built on a hill that was said to have contained a massive tree.

The current site of Tree Hill was first settled by the Numenorians, and during this initial time they built several of the most famous parts of Tree Hill including the wall into the Keep of Tree Hill, the settlement of Earl Hill, and the Storm Keep. The city was wiped out during the Night of the Spiders and thus was left depopulated for generations until the Italians begin to dominate the valley for a time. Tree Hill would be reestablished by House Targaryan of whom was rewarded by House Lovie for their loyalty and given a position of dominance in central Lucerne. House Targaryan ruled for some time until they were laid low during the riegn of Aryes Targaryan II. House Targaryan self exiled themselves going eastward and House Starke was named the new lords of the city to the discust of House Tyrell of whom following this would gather much of their wealth and move themselves to Highgarden their eastern seat. Tree was the centerpoint of most industrious behavior in the Kingdom, and the center of the the intellectual movement in Lucerne. This all came to an end after the First Battle of Tree Hill . This battle would destroy the majority of the city, and leave the remainder under siege for the better part of a decade. This siege would destory the vast majority of the population of Tree Hill with almost 80% of the original population either dead or fled. Following the liberation of Tree Hill in the Second battle of Tree Hill, the city is once again a center of industry in Lucerne, but on top of this Andrew has made Tree Hill a major source of defence for the southern sections of Lucerne.

Hill of the Mouth

The Hill of the Mouth is built on the hill that overlooks the middle of the Tree Hill River, and contains the port of Tree Hill as well as most of its fishery work.

Hill of Earl

The Hill of Earl is build on the hill that lies above the Tree Hill river, and thus stands as a sort of bridge that allows crossing over the Tree Hill River.

Sea Gate of Tree Hill

Standing underneath the Mountain that dominates the Hill of Tree Hill the sea gate of Tree Hill allows entry into the city itself. The gate itself is able to be opened through either the under mountain entrance within the city, as well as outside the city thus marking it as more of a fortification for the cities southern entrance.


Early History

The current site of Tree Hill was first settled by the Numenorians, and during this initial time they built several of the most famous parts of Tree Hill including the wall into the Keep of Tree Hill, the settlement of Earl Hill, and the Storm Keep. The city was wiped out during the Night of the Spiders and thus was left depopulated for generations until the Italians begin to dominate the valley for a time. The site of the city at the time was of little importance and because of this the larger city of forks was the main city of importance in the valley of Lucerne. Following the events of the Driving Tide the city was targeted by William Lovie as a location for improved population and economy, and in this regard he sent one of his most loyal houses in House Targaryan to the city in order to lead it.

The city of Tree Hill would rise to its large levels through immigration of many houses from forks following the driving tide, and in this the leadership of house targaryan created the foundation of tree hill.

Morrigan Cover Amazing.jpg

I'm here to help you Lucas Scott. In whatever way I can.

Lucas Scott would be spending time with Haley Scott of whom he is at first talking with on the battlements of the Tree Hill keep with who they believe is Caryl Todrinnel and they are talking about the recent appearance of food within the food storage of the caverns beneath the Tree Hill keep and while Caryl pushed the idea that this was the work of Glaurung it was Lucas that in his own mind would think to himself that this was impossible and made plans to sneak into the storage that night and observe what happened. Lucas Scott would hide himself in the storeroom and waited all night until something happened when Morrigan entered the storeroom seemingly through a wall as she had used Magi to get inside. Watching her from his hiding place she would summon the food from her home inside the storeroom, and it was only when she was completed her ritual that she saw that she was being watched. Lucas would confront Morrigan of whom he demanded how she had entered the food stuffs of the city and why she was giving them food, and when she was truthful telling him that she was a member of a special group and had been commanded to save the city he would demand the truth not believing her. As they spoke he begin to remember bits of memories from the initial Orc assault on the city and sensing his regaining memory she would use her Magi to take him back to the events of the initial assault on Tree Hill. With his memories restored including the fact that he had been mortally wounded and saved by Morrigan he would agree to keep her a secret but demanded that the two speak every day about what was happening and that she told him everything she was planning and having longed to be closer to Lucas for months it was Morrigan that readily agreed to this. The next day Lucas Scott gives a speech where despite knowing that the food was the work of Morrigan he declares it an act of Glaurung himself to keep them alive and his speech brings about the first sounds of happiness from the crowd and over the course of the day he works about schedules where the women will help distribute the food and rebuild their broken stocks of agriculture which has sprouted up in the city.

Gerlinde Jocic Cover2.jpg

My sister has come here and she has built herself an army within the one I have built. Her army is going to come here. I must stop her. You must survive until I do.

While Morrigan was working against Flemeth in Tree Hill it was Gerlinde Jocic that would be sent to Lucerne in order to assist Morrigan in her manipulation of the Kingdom of Lucerne, but as Gerlinde hated Morrigan she would not make her presence known and watched Morrigan witnessing her helping the Tree Hill defenders, and wanting to ruin something of Morrigan's she would begin infiltrating the Orc army and begin building her own forces. Gerlinde quickly realized that the Orcish main leader in the form of Jurden Hardaxe was a puppet of Morrigan and was actively working against the destruction fo Tree Hill, and thus it was Gerlinde that went to Chigdrask a goblin leader of the Hill of Edrestic and turned him Chigdrask into her puppet. Using Magi Gerlinde was able to manipulate Chigdrask until he had become her servent and with Chigdrask under her control he would begin massing his forces at the Hill of Edrestic for an assault on Tree Hill which would destroy the city before Jurden hardaxe could step into stop him. As Gerlinde made the final preparations for the attack on Tree Hill by her forces she was discovered by Morrigan and the two fought a brief battle but Gerlinde was able to escape fleeing Tree Hill to west of the city staying with her personal forces there. As Lucas goes to his room to go to sleep he is exhausted but his exhaustion ends when he sees Morrigan sitting at a chair in his room and talking to her she tells him about a horrifying development that she has uncovered in the army of Orcs seiging the city and reveals that she has been controlling the Orc leader to keep Tree Hill alive. She reveals that she is being confronted by a sister of hers named Gerlinde Jocic and her sister has raised an army of Goblins and Orcs that she is using to bypass Morrigans Orc army and attack the city of Tree Hill. Morrigan says she tried to fight her but Gerlinde fled to a stronghold of the goblin Chigdrask north west of the city and she needs Lucas's help in defeat her sister at the camp of Chigdrask and despite his still skepticism towards Morrigan he agrees to gather men to him who will join him assisting Morrigan.

I'm asking you to come with me to a place where we face extreme risk. I'm asking you to do this because I believe our time is running short. My speech is nothing more then an illusion. We need to change things. We need to take a chance.
Lucas Scott
Lucas goes to the Scott Keep and meets with several of his friends in the form of Loras Tyrell, Oliver Slinde, Lucas Oakheart, and Jake James. As he takes the group to the food storemoom he is prepared to meet with Morrigan but instead they find Caryl Todrinnel and Morrigan and it is then they Caryl reveals that she in fact not Caryl but actual an angel of sorts named Roswita and that she will portal them inside the camp once Morrigan is able to get inside. Morrigan portals out of the room and as they wait for nearly an hour for her they talk with Roswita and learn that she found Carly dead outside of the city but wanted to help so she used Magi to take on her physical appearance and has been helping ever since in whatever way she can. In the hours before the forces of Gerlinde were to attack the city of Tree Hill it was Morrigan that infiltrated the camp of Chigdrask's Orcs and killing her way inside the keep she would find that Chigdrask had already left with most of the Orcs to attack Tree Hill but Gerlinde remained behind with only a small elite guard and her closest goblin commander Knenkimm to defend her in the hopes that she would be able to kill Morrigan.

After almost two hours Caryl's portal stone begins pulsing and she opens the portal and walks through and Lucas follows behind her and then the rest of the group and they find themselves inside the ruined keep of Oliver's family causing an enraged Oliver to let out a tear at what has become of his families home. Finding themselves there they follow Morrigan into fighting against Gerlinde and her goblin defenders and they are able to defeat the goblins killing them to a man and they watching as Gerlinde and Morrigan fight a horrifying battle joined by Roswita and after Morrigan takes a horrible wound to her shoulder its Roswita that delivers a glancing blow to Gerlinde knocking her down. As Gerlinde attempts to escape once again she would be stopped by Morrigan of whom was able to use Magi to lock her away into a Soulstone and thus keep her secret alive. A badly wounded Morrigan explains that the army of Chigdrask has already left for Tree Hill and remains behind with Roswita but portals Lucas and his forces out of the keep and back to Tree Hill where they rush to the keep and set of the warning alarm and then making their way to the walls where they find the archers there already firing on the rushing army.
The Assault

Roswita Cover Amazing.jpg

Today might seem hopeless Lucas. Today might feel like the end of the world. I promise you their will be better days. This pain will pass.
As the years of siege went by a lull in the fighting had taken place as the Orcish commander was completely fine with draining his leadership rivals in duels with Lucas, while the defenders were worn out and emotionally destroyed. The Raid of 5123 came about when an especially large Orc took control of forces, and led them in a very large attack that unlike the overall Orc leader he was actually interested in destroying the city. The main attack came against the main gate, and they were hardpressed to hold them off as they ran across the bridge.
Loras Tyrell Gif.gif
The only lull in the fighting came as the Orcs were forced to push their casualties into the moat where so high were their losses that they begin to fill the moat. At the eastern gate Loras Tyrell led the defences and the orcs here were in greater number then every before and they broke into the courtyard of the keep. Fighting became brutal and a last stand broke out at the gatehouse as the defenders were overrun and the Orcs broke inside the Keep. Loras Tyrell would lead some twenty men into the breach and kill most of the attackers during the charge, and bought time for relief to arrive from the main keep. The large Orc would be killed at the eastern gatehouse by Nathan Scott and following his death the Orc force retreated, but the defenders had been drained beyond repair by the attack suffering immense losses, and Loras Tyrell fell into a coma following a massive blow from the large Orc.

It was Brooke Scott who was trying to find peace during this time that she spends a lot of time by herself and visiting one of her favorite spots she instead of finding peace finds Julian Baker, and Lindsay Baker kissing and she watches this in shock as they are brother and sister, but eventually Julian departs leaving Lindsay behind and when Brooke goes to leave Lindsay speaks to her revealing she knew that she was there the entire time. Going inside and talking to Lindsay she discovers the girl that was so angry all that time ago is now basically insane as Lindsay questions whether Brooke is trying to get between her and Julian and despite saying she is not Lindsay proceeds to threaten her and reveal that she murdered her sister, and parents after they tried to get between her and Julian. Revealing to Brooke the events of the murders she attempts to strike Brooke but Brooke is able to dodge the attack and get out of the house running to the keep to find her brother who she knows will keep her safe. Instead of finding her brother she finds her father of whom questions her as to what is wrong and in a moment of weakness she reveals the truth and instead of protecting her Dan threatens Lucas's life if she reveals what happened with Lindsay and following this she runs to her room locking the door behind her and crying.

Your father knows the truth Brooke. Help me find out that truth for myself.

Led on by the plotting of Jaime she gets him inside the inner keep where he tells her is the evidence of what happened to get the Orcs inside of the city, and entering the room he tells her he apologizes and then ties her hands and puts a knife to her kneck. Using the threat of killing Brooke he is able to get himself past the inner keep guards and into the hall room with Dan where Nathan is also present, and Jaime threatens to kill Dan if he doesn't hear the truth but to the shock of Brooke and confusion of Jaime Dan just moves behind his desk to grab a bow from the wall and as Jaime screams to know the truth Dan just begins laughing causing Jaime to let go of Brooke and charge at Dan knocking Nathan to the ground, but as he gets near Dan he is struck in the leg by an arrow by Lucas who drops the bow and goes to Brooke while Nathan restrains Jaime who continues screaming. Now restrained Jaime begins openly talking about what he knows and the fact that Dan Scott had sealed his family into the keep as well as known about the coming of the Orcs, and while speaking he is struck through the face by an arrow as Dan kills him.

Take this traitor away. You have struck your lord and for that you will be punished.
Dan Scott

Following the killing of Jaime its Dan who is confronted by Lucas who knew Jaime as they were of similar age and as Lucas and Dan's fight gets worse Dan's guards arrive and at Dan's orders take Lucas into custody putting him a cell to cool off leaving Dan, Nathan, and Brooke alone. Without Lucas to protect her Brooke is overcome by fear and all the questions she has in her head over what Jaime told her she is unable to ask and allows her father and brother to force her silence again using the threat of violence against Lucas to further put fear into her. Waking up in the morning Brooke looks for her brother and discovers that Lucas has been sentenced to two years in prison, as he is also being tried for conspiracy alongside five other knights who Dan is blaming for being part of a movement to attempt to kill him, and leaving Dan she goes to the cells where she wants to find Lucas and his knights in the cell. Stopped from entering the cells themselves by guards she is told that no one can visit Lucas as he has been labeled a threat to the people alongside his knights she breaks down crying and is comforted by Lord Primus Amatius who is in command of the cells. Primus sends away several of the guards leaving only himself and his son Lucius Amatius and then after talking over things with Brooke Primus lets Lucius take her into the cells where she will be able to talk to Lucas one time but he lets her know that this wont happen again as Primus is being stripped of his command in favor of Marcelet Rivel who is a Dan Scott loyalist. Brooke meets with Lucas and the two talk for some time with Lucas forcing Brooke to promise him she will take charge of the new duels and as they continue to talk she is stopped by the arrival of Tristan Gencien of whom as a loyalist to Dan forces her out of the room. Keeping her promise Brooke goes to Loras Tyrell who Lucas had suggested but finds that Loras has been placed on house arrest following what happened with Lucas as he is seen as too loyal to Lucas and thus she goes to the next person Lucas suggested in the form of Thomas Sifflet and finding him fishing at the lake its Brooke who speaks to him and convinces him to take on the role of the defender of Tree hill.

The Journey

Main Article : The Journey


Following the liberation of Tree Hill, Andrew went to Dan Scott, and asked him for a blank sheet of all the materials he would need to rebuild the city. This list was then debated by the leading members of Tree Hill, as well as the burgeoning members of the Order of the Grey Dragon.

Eventually the required resources were put together and Andrew had them gathered up and sent to Tree Hill. The goal of the project was to turn Tree Hill back into the large city it was, but as well to make sure that its fortifications were far greater then they were before the First Battle of Tree Hill.

Tree Hill - Keep.png

The Hill of the Tree or 'Tree Hill Keep' is the central and most fortified position in the city of Tree Hill and is the location of most of the nobility of the city proper as well as famous for being the spot that survived the First Battle of Tree Hill.


As a city in the Kingdom of Lucerne the city is run based on the Organizational structure of the city planning legality. The city stands as the seat of the Grand State of the Stormlands and thus the most prominent leader within the city lies as the Arch Lord of the Stormlands known as the ''Stormlord''. While the Arch Lord is all powerful in terms of local matters the city organization is separate from the Stormlands leaving the Burgomaster as the overall leader of the city.

Tree Hill Circle

The Tree Hill Circle is the overall leadership group of the city of Tree Hill and while led by the Burgomaster the council meets together with each member responsible for a different aspect of the cities governance.
