Hi folks. Here is the situation: The players' covenant is a tower with adjacent cottages for mundane folk. The aura inside the tower is +4 (where the magi live) but outside of the building it suddenly drops to +1. Rummaging through Covenants book only got me confused. I don't want to force my players to buy tons of major boons just for focused, medium-powered aura levels. I'm not sure if this is a advantage or disadvantage. But it is a very important part of the game storywise; more important than rules equilibrium (Actually the tower does not generate a +4 aura but supresses and decreases it to +1 outside of the building). Yet I want to do it by the book too! Oh the price I have to pay for being an honest game master.
Can anyone give suggestions about the boons and hooks that we should take for our little, cozy covenant of horrific mysteries? Thanks.
