Somerled - 'King' of the Isles
intro and mission

You must proceed without too much celebration. There are things to do, Somerled. In David I's reign, many Norman nobles settled along the border with the west. Defensive motte-and-bailey castles have been built to defend the 'Canmore' dynasty.

David I granted his close Norman friend Walter fitz Alan land in Renfrew, in exchange for military support. This is a serious threat to your independence.
