Title: HISTORY OF PETERS


1
HISTORY OF PETERS
Smith Lounge is a locale still mired in mystery.
Discovered by the great Petersian explorer
Benedicto Lombardo Jones in 1992, he found it a
disagreeable and damp place, though filled with
promising stores of electronics. Smith Lounge and
the parts beyond are still largely untamed, and
rumors persist of hauntings in Smith portal.
Construction is currently underway between Smith
and Long to host the 2024 Olympics, with the
construction of a foosball field already
completed.

HISTORY OF PETERS
Long portal offered no resistance to colonizing
forces from Peters in 1954. It is notable for its
cheese mines. Long portal is
looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooong.
3
HISTORY OF PETERS
Mallet and Peters have a long and bloody history
of wars, finally ended with the 2006 Strategic
Nerf Limitation talks. Intermittent assassination
attempts on prominent members of both portals are
frequently denounced as turriszm, although
suspicions persist of an eldritch cabal of
wizards in Mallets upper floors who seek to
reopen the Engels portal and unleash the dark
magic within, causing a terrible cataclysm in
the process. Possibly the inspiration for the
film Event Horzion.

HISTORY OF PETERS
The Davis moat was the site of a great final
battle between the Peters 1st battalion and the
remains of the Davis coalition forces in 1977.
After a months-long siege, the vending machines
ran out of supplies and the retreating Davis
forces were driven across the moat. Following
this the portal was burned to the ground with
long-range artillery. Nothing of value was lost
and nothing of interest beyond this point remains.
5
HISTORY OF PETERS
Venable is one of the few portals to have an
intact aristocracy, though the recent departure
of the Lady Venable (Venababe) for Africa has
caused political instability to rise afresh. The
Lord Venable has been a great asset in equipping
Peters military forces with weapons of finest
foam and duct tape and in return Peters has
allowed this quaint portal to maintain its
independent governance. Separatists in lower
Venable threaten the future of this peaceful
hamlet.
6
HISTORY OF PETERS
This water fountain was disabled to quell local
unrest from Venable portal residents. Despite
their obedience, it has not yet been reactivated.
Death tolls are in the thousands.

HISTORY OF PETERS
Though never a formal war on drugs, antagonism
between Peters and Gildersleeve has lasted
decades. Smuggling operations on land and sea
have long been assailed by the Peters armed
forces, including a notable altercation where the
Peters Imperial Navy destroyed a 200m cargo ship
filled with pudding pops and industrial hemp. The
resulting dearth of pudding pops led to a
mounting of tensions between Tucker and Peters
that was diffused with a peace offering of
honeyed camel.
8
HISTORY OF PETERS
The buildings on the Gildergreen were actually
build on a foundation of volcanic rock, and these
caves are the start of a vast network of tunnels
leading to molten magma caverns far beneath
Brown. Mining has attempted to exploit these from
time to time, especially to harvest diamonds,
but to minimal success. Attempts to explore the
depths have been frustrated by dire cave
squirrels. Those who dare to venture beyond
should be of at least 6th level and should
probably carry cold-element weapons. The hardest
metal known the man.
9
HISTORY OF PETERS
McGuffeys notables stood trial in 2007 for
malicious edits to the Brown College Wikipedia
article and other high crimes and misdemeanors.
This proved to be its most notable contribution
to the McGarrisleeve triumvirate, and it did
little to stop the disillusion of McGarrisleeve.
In addition to Wiki-vandalism, McGuffey exports
more soy than any other portal and also imported
large quantities of vibranium alloy during the
war for unspecified projects.
10
HISTORY OF PETERS
This bunker was built underneath the Gildergreen
by Harrison and McGuffey during the 1959-1962
portal wars. It was intended to serve as a bunker
for notables of both portals in the event of a
serious crisis that rendered either
uninhabitable, but it was never used. The
technology within dates from that era, including
a primitive supercomputer, Deep Brown, that was
undefeated in chess until alumnus-at-large Smokey
beat it 5-2 in an uninterrupted 44 hour contest.
Smokey then preceded to run a 5K.
11
HISTORY OF PETERS
Harrison, headquarters of the now defunct
McGarrisleeve triumvirate, has a violent history.
A failed 1962 offensive against the anti-quad led
to the destruction of Engels portal and the
near-collapse of Harrisons economy, but communal
farming on the Gildergreen and a rigorous
propaganda campaign returned the portal to
prominence within several decades. Harrison still
maintains a large standing army and the
demilitarized zone of Tucker lounge remains as an
attempt at civil relations between portals.
12
THE FALL OF MCGARRISLEEVE
Despite the demilitarized zone, recent years have
seen more tensions between Harrison and the rest
of Brown College. At the height of the
McGarrisleeve triumvirate the Harrison 3rd
Infantry and 6th Armor moved into Tucker lounge,
and after talks broke down McGarrisleeve
announced a policy of mutually assured
destruction of all Brown College should anyone
challenge them. Internal breakdowns left Harrison
without reinforcements and their military
withdrew in early 2007.But the threat remains.
13
HISTORY OF PETERS
Peters has invaded Tucker several times in the
interest of peace, first in 1922 to quell a land
dispute between Engels and Harrison. Tucker was
long the home of the annual Peters-Mallet chili
cookoff that ended in a 1988 tragedy with two
judges and twelve spectators dead when Robert
Red Beans McGoo inadvertently added plastiques
to his cauldron of chili. In addition to chili,
Tucker is home to pie-eating, Halofests, and
occasional standoffs of epic proportions.
14
HISTORY OF PETERS
Engels portal was the anti-quads sister portal
to Peters and a long-time ally in the first half
of the 20th century. During the portal wars of
1959-1962, the Engels-Peters particle reactor was
built by a joint weapons development program. A
1962 raid by Harrison caused the reactor to
become unstable and create a time warp. Engels
portal vanished in the resulting fold in
space-time. Reports persist it is possible to
find Engels on rare occasions when it reappears
or if one is extremely drunk.Wooooaaaaaah!
15
HISTORY OF PETERS
Holmes, the furthest original colony in the
Peters protectorate, enjoys scenic views over the
Tucker crevasse which give it a formidable
defensive position against invasion. Regrettably,
Holmes residents also must fight infestations of
mutant parasite wallrunning spider-crabs,
byproducts of the radiation from the Engels
reactor collapse. These beasts grow up to four
feet tall and have venomous suckers covering
their bodies. They are as deadly as a full grown
drop-bear and mostly eat humans.Protip to
defeat the spider-crab, shoot at it until it dies.
16
HISTORY OF PETERS
Rogers and Peters, though divided by the Peters
moat, have an alliance dating back almost to the
formation of both portals. The great Petersian
architect Ronaldus Paulus XVI hewed the Rogers
study room from the solid brick foundation of
Brown College, and until the early 20th century
it was used variously as a wine cellar, brothel,
mass grave, colocation center, meth lab, and ball
pit. In return, Rogers built a solid gold statue
of Chewbacca and stationed it at the Peters end
of the moat. Much like the Colossus of Rhodes,
seismic activity caused its collapse.
17
HISTORY OF PETERS
The Peters moat, created in prehistory, divides
Peters from the rest of Brown College. In the
12th century engineering geniuses figured a way
to drain the moat and connect Peters to the
mainland. The moat remains dry until times of
war, when it is flooded and filled with highly
trained robot kraken.

HISTORY OF PETERS
The Peters Protectorate Mining Corporation began
digging on this site in the 1600s, refining their
operations continually through the present day.
In addition to sizable deposits of radioactive
material (used in the Engels reactor), the
primary product of these mines is raw Nerf ore.
Since the Strategic Nerf Limitation treaty with
Mallet, production has dropped significantly and
the mines now serve as one of Peterss best known
tourist attractions.
20
HISTORY OF PETERS
Peters, oldest of the portals, has housed many of
the most illustrious of Brown residents since the
dawn of time. Legend tells us the foundation
bricks for Peters were laid by Thomas Jefferson
himself, who named the portal after his favorite
son, Peters Jefferson. The people of this great
portal have been fruitful at all the arts, have
had great economic prosperity, and reduce enemies
to piles of rubble in war. Peters is a portal to
be feared and respected. Scholars theorize that
the nascent United States was founded on the
Petersian model.
