Dimos, Earl of Stirling & Falkirk
Well here is my story. I became vassal of King and Lord of the Scots Malcolm III and I was given the humble village of Pennan with the duties to defend my King & country, respect the higher feudal ranks and customs... I tried to do quests for the Lord of the neigbouring castle as as to be accepted and allowed to enter his great hall. After many quests for my villages and Lord Alexander the fierce, the English invaded our Lands and besieged the precious caste of stirling. They took it within 3 days! All Scotish were ashamed of the defenders' fate. I saw that hey left too few men in its garisson (16 english troops were there) and left for their homeland to the south. I was leading 48 Scots. So I besieged that and within 1 day the castle was mine! Meanwhile King Malcolm asked me to go to Edinburgh and wait there to follow him in his upcoming campaign. I believed that he was about to anounce me that Stirling would be mine. I was there with 42 Scotsmen. He refused! I desided to go on as a rebel Lord. The King's army took over the castle again, but some eager recruits from the nearby villages accepted that it was unfair and desided to join my forces... After 3 sieges (1rst with 10 troops, 2nd with 15, 3rd with 13) I managed to reget it. Theenglish came again. Took the castle and Prince Rufus himself was fortified in. He had 48 with him and 32 were inside as well. Before that sucessful siege I was continiously fortifying my castle for future attacks. It had 46 people in before lost to the English. After 2 days, Prince Rufus desided to check his father's estetes and interests in the South so he left for Oxford and his beloved England. King William was patrolling around the Castle for another 2-3 days... The castle garisson was 32 men. I went to the North, in my beloved Pennan village and asked for eager rebels. 16 Highlanders were there to hear my call to arms! Combined with the 6 recruits I pulled from the Falkirk village and some other recruits I pulled from other villages I was marching close to the enemy with preide (had 29 men with me) ... And then the heavens had mercy upon me... King William saw a Scotish caravan coming his way and left to steal food and supplies. I was left near Stirling Castle with my fellow Scots and after one sucessful siege the castle was mine once more. I the ''Earl of Stirling & Falkirk and the protector of the crown stone of Stirling'' .
After a long week of daily struggle for life and fortification, the Scotish King & Counselors desided to request me a peach deal, which I accepted... Then I had to seek for grain for the people of Pennan as requested by the elderman there.
