The Northumbria Covenant (on the Yorkshire coast)
The PC's meet a tall, blonde haired magi who claims to be Snorri,
but later turns out to be an impostor.
Later a small, localized storm approaches the covenant. It turns out
to be the real Snorri, who is a Dwarf, being chased by spirits of the
air. Aodh is struck down by the spirits. Both Snorri and the spirits of
the air are capable of using lightning bolts in combat.
During the conflict he impostor sets fire and burns down two of the
covenant's laboratories. He then magically disappears.
Richard goes to the Stanford Bridge Covenant to get Cearl, Melyon
and Paulus. Paulus heals Aodh and leaves three magical cakes that heal
the person who eats them.
Snorri uses a text to cast Aegis
of the Hearth at level 30. Snorri,
Aodh, Cearl and Melyon are included
in the Aegis.
The Covenant sends Immin the Scribe to the Stamford Bridge Covenant
for the season.
- The covenant buildings are on the site of an old Roman watchtower.
- The wizards have used up their 10 free days. Any more
interruptions and they won't get any studying done for the season.
- Immin the Scribe will need to work for the Stamford Bridge
Covenant this season. Stamford Bridge Covenant was bought as an ally
that would help only 5% of the time. Paulus has already provided
healing for the Northumbria covenant. Any more requests would strain
the alliance. Also, Stamford Bridge also needs to use their own texts
for their studying. Immin does get to practice his skill Scribe Latin,
but gains no experience for it (I rolled a 2 for his Practice). Using
his Social Contacts, he finds that there is a covenant in London with
an extensive library. Next season he can make a trip there as part of
