"Now, turning our attention to the matter of resources, I was able to secure the following for the covenant," Tandaline picks up of the the scrolls, unrolling it to consult its content.
"First, Durenmar is currently putting together the supplies for five laboratories. The first two should be packed within a few weeks, but the other ones will take a bit more time to complete. I believe that the other three more should mostly be ready for transport at the end of summer, though a few of the harder-to-get supplies and tools may only arrive next year. Still, that should allow you to begin your research soon after you arrive."
"Second, I know that each of you were tasked with copying summae during the last few years of apprenticeship and that your pater or mater offered those to you when you completed your Gauntlet. This a good start for a library, so I have spoken with Andrus about completing those with a number of books from the Great Library. Mostly older works on magic theory, the various lores, artes liberales and philosophiae. Some may be slightly damaged, but all should be serviceable. At least a dozen such books have been flagged for your use."
"Third is the matter of mundane resources. I have asked the autocrat for fifty pounds of silver, with fifty more next year. This should allow you to get started. A handful of grogs will also be assigned to you on a permanent basis, along with a few servants."
