When it was pointed out that the location had a pagan temple which had been leveled but a century earlier by Saracen raiders, it was gifted to a covenant from Normandy along with a writ of crenulation and a rent that was expected, and the expectation that the magi would defend this land for themselves from Saracen invaders. 50 years later the chapterhouse has become a covenant, with a mixture of people of Greek, Roman, Norman and Saracen heritages.

Ars Magica 5th Edition: Ascendency of the Warp The key theme of Ascendency of the Warp (AotW) is the rise of otherworldly powers into Mythic Europe. It is my intention to present a setting where the characters confront both normal and supernatural powers as a part of regular story telling, and the common man also slowly starts to be exposed to the strange powers as well. As the saga gains pace the players should feel a noticeable change in the setting, toward a more fantastic, uncanny, and dangerous world.

(Sister saga to The Price of Freedom) Ars Magica 5th Edition: Ad fons (at the spring) Ad fons, at the spring. The covenant is a quiet place near a spring in the deep Pomeranian forest. Magi from far and wide gather to pursue their individual goals, some wishing to civilize the area other seeking refuge from the outside world. From the shadows werewolves and witches watch the unsuspecting magi as they arrive. Ars Magica 5th Edition: Ad Astera per Aspera The Caravan was never really considered a covenant, though in many ways it behaved like one, and never confined itself to one tribunal. It was only when the founder died and The Caravan began to fall apart that it was realized how powerful it had grown, though what remained of it was barely a spring covenant. Many of those who had journeyed with The Caravan went their own way- back to the Covenants which they officially belonged, but a core cadre of mages, especially ones with no official allegiance, decided to take what they could salvage and begin anew, not traveling, but as a new Covenant, building upon the discoveries that the Caravan had uncovered in it's travels.
