    knows, and to an extent, trusts everyone else, making it hard to infiltrate.

    small number of professional soldiers. They must be paid a penny a day, most

Hooks

    Southern Devonshire, but also on the Coast near both Pirate Bays and Merchant

    Covenant cannot be ignored by local temporal and spiritual authorities.
  • Minor Hook Fosterage The Castle is fostering the child of a power person or Being.
  • Minor Hook Centralized Kingdom As it is clear who owns every bit of Land in England, the Covenant must justify itself to agents of the Crown.

    covenant. Strange Magics and remnants still remain to be discovered.
  • Minor Hook Haunted Ghosts, Possibly of Ex-Magi, Haunt the Covenant.

Forestry(Lesser), Currency Income: 40 £
A deal with Sir Falkes de Breauté has granted the covenant several miles of nearby woodland, as well as a dozen or so experienced woodsmen to procure wood and game from the forest. This solitary lot of men report to Thomas Carne.

Library

Vis

Vis Source: Vim 10 Pawns
Location: Covenant; Seasons: Spring
The Island itself is a pulsing nexus of magical energies, barely contained, or in truth, understood by the Magi who now dwell there. Upon the Vernal Equinox, as the light from the sun slips above the horizon, small vibrations can’t be felt throughout the island, as if a giant harp-string has been plucked. From the ground, some-where on the island, like strange sprouts, will grow these small pulsing monoliths, like fingers of stone that reach up from the ground towards the Spring sun. Each is marked with an incomprehensible swirling sigil motif.

Vis Source: Aquam 2 Pawns
Location: Covenant Seasons: Winter
During Winter’s darkest months, Crystals of a Brilliant Blue Hue stick to the cliffs, glowing among the formations of ice.

Vis Source: Corpus 2 Pawns
Location: Fae Hill about 2 days ride to the West. Seasons:Spring
The Fae Spirit of a long dead Roman gives up a cup of the blood he has collected over the centuries, the thick crimson liquid radiating life.

Vis Source: Creo 4 Pawns
Location: A Magical cave less than a days walk from the Covenant. Seasons:Spring
A strange Magical regio here contains ancient cave paintings and relics. Within during the spring small flowers of red and green grow from seemingly solid stone, with no sunlight or water.
