So, consider the following situation. You are a young spring covenant and you are sending a representative to tribunal. At the tribunal, there will be an auction of some goods that have been seized from a magus in payment of debt. To simplify the bidding, the tribunal has decreed that all bids must be with Vim vis. Your covenant has 10 pawns of vim vis available for bidding, you also have 6 pawns of Aquam vis that the Redcaps will trade at a three to one ratio and 5 pawns of Corpus vis that can be traded for Vim vis at a one to one ratio.
The items that will be auctioned, and the order they will be auctioned is below

A L6, Q21 summae on Rego
The following lab texts, which were invented by a Bonisangus magi (Ninkas) who was trying to develop Deft Form as a teachable virtue. She had a Minor Magical focus in Ale and a focus in Aquam, so the spells she focused on had to do with ale. The following spells were invented to not use either words or gestures.
a. L25 CrAq Ninkas Gift. Fills barrel with ale. Base 2, +1 touch, +3 Sun, +3 for not using words or gestures
b. L25 MuAq with He requsite Ninkas Power of Oak, Turns aie into dead oak wood in whatever shape the ale was previously. Base 4, +1 touch, +2 Sun, +2 no verbal components
c. L25 MuAq with Te requisite Ninkas Power of Iron, Turns ale into iron, in whatever shape the ale was when it was transformed. Base 4, +1 touch, +2 Sun, +2 no verbal components
d. L25 MuAq with Te requisite Ninkas Power of Silver, Turns ale into silver, in whatever shape the ale was when it was transformed. Base 4, +1 touch, +2 Sun, +2 no verbal components

A lab text for the L10 ReHe spell Repel the Wooden Shafts and two Q12 tractus on spell mastery of that spell
The Debt of Friendship wand, L65 CrMe effect, charged item, with three charges left. Creates a memory in the targets mind of the user having done them a great favor and a sense of gratitude towards them. Causes warping in the target as a powerful mystical effect Base 5, +3 Sight, +3 Moon, +1 intricate effect, +25 for +50 penetration.
3 Rods of Demon Repulsion. L80 ReViCharged item, (one charge per rod) creates a Circular Ward Vs Demons with L50 level, +60 penetration. (It may seem that the +60 vs +50 penetration is overkill, but demons would receive a bonus to magic resistance in infernal auras, and this is an attempt to overcome this) Each rod will be auctioned separately.
So, given the above, what instructions would you give to your covenants representative on how to bid, and on which items?
