I´m a little bit confused about the "Heartbeasts and Ancestor spirits" thread (https://forum.atlas-games.com/t/heartbeasts-and-ancestor-spirits/10275/1).
Let me describe, what I´m planning, maybe then you can tell me, where is my fault.
I have a Bjornaer Maga in my group. Her Heartbeast is a nightingale. She lived near Crintera but now she founded a new covenant at the rhine gorge with the other characters of the group. At the last Tribunal she became acquainted with three other Bjornaer Magae. One of them is a peregrinator, the two other live in a Fengheld Chapterhouse not too far away from the covenant of the characters. All three have birds as Heartbeasts and they form a sept. The Maga made friends with them and so got an invitation to join the sept. The requirement for her entry is the initiation in the Clanmysteries (of Clan Maruh). The sept meets at an ancestor site: a sugarloaf lump of rock a few day´s journey away called "The Hollow Stone". The initiation should be performed there.
Here are my problems:
- My plan was, that the Maga will meet the ancestor spirits at the Hollow Stone. These spirits will question the Maga concerning her character and courage. But are there ancestor spirits at an ancestor site at all? In the "Heartbeasts and Ancestor spirits" thread it appears to me, that the ancestor spirits are integral part of the Heartbeasts. Can you meet an ancestor spirit at an ancestor site?
- Let´s assume this is possible and I need stats for the ancestor spirits. What kind of spirits are they? Ghostly Apparitions? I´m not sure.
