intro and mission

Survival of the fittest

Strike a deal with Edward Balliol. If he promises to acknowledge your authority over lands in the west, you will pledge military support to help him defend against his enemies.

In the name of Somerled

Attempt a reconciliation between your family and the MacDougalls. Try and convince them that a united Gaelic community should be the mission of both families, not siding with Balliol.

You hear that Edward Balliol and the MacDougalls of Lorn have lately been in discussions. This could only mean trouble. What should you do?
