Drystan calls for the Spring council meeting for directly after lunch, to give everyone time to wake up and have eaten (in some cases, twice), and hopefully able to conclude the business in plenty of time for the Spring Feast.
The main business of the Spring Council is distribution of the surplus. There are currently eight Full Members of the Council, each of whom is entitled to six pawns of vis.
"Speaking of Full Members," Drystan says, "has anyone seen Siobhan lately?"
"If I remember right, Talia, you had mentioned creating a second ship like the Whoa Buoy to bolster the covenant's income. Would you like to use the covenant's vis to do so, since the boat will be in the covenant's service?"
"Speaking of the Whoa Buoy," Eilid says, "have you considered having your maidenhead enchanted?"
Also, who's going to harvest which vis sources this year? Most of the sources are fairly straightforward, but some require some planning or the use of magic.
- The Salmon of Truth could probably be harvested by a muggle who makes a decent fishing roll, to be sure he snags the right salmon.
- Peat Bog would probably require an InAn or InCo to find the corpse to have dug up.
- The Roses of Eilean Chon probably require an InVi to cut the right blossoms.
- Mandrake probably requires a plan.
I think Halie volunteered to locate and harvest the Fleece of the Lucky Ewe, and I think Caiomhe said something about fishing up the Monster's Eggs?
