Welcome to Mornamont - the curious world inhabited by 'Colonel' John Scott.

Was John Scott a swaggering villain or a bold adventurer? It is difficult to say looking back three hundred years. The few historians who have attempted to tell his story can't agree. He remains an enigma. A life full of mystery, political intrigue, plots, international drama and unbelievably daring escapades - if ever a man had the benefit of the cat's nine lives, it was John Scott.
