Ecelo ex Miscellanea, an itinerant seeker, mulls over the list of magical traces.
"Sodales, he says, let us try to examine the evidence."
A Rego Terram Enchanted Device : Trace Magnitude 0. (Clara) courtyard
"Are these the traces of the mechanical wyvern?"
A Perdo Terram Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 (Heironymous) - Pit of the Gaping Earth courtyard
"This one we knew about."
A Second Perdo Terram Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 Tower Ruins
"Probably Gorax's spell used to collapse the tower."
A Creo Aquam Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 (Valeria) courtyard, tower ruins, library
"This is probably the spell used to quench the fire. Nothing we don't expect but... water was found in Gorax's body, and we can assume he was protected by his Parma. Why didn't Valeria cast the spell forcelessly?"
A Creo Ignem Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 (Clara) courtyard
"AH-HA! This is an odd one. Could it be that Clara started the fire herself? Having a fire does in part help out the case of her covenant -- they can claim they panicked, that Gorax created a serious threat to their magical power, and they can justify casting the water spell. This is important: perhaps Gorax was not dead, and they decided to get rid of him permanently. Or he maybe he was dead; but with water in his lungs it would be uncertain whether his death would be the responsibility of the wyvern's attack, or of an "accident" involving the water -- and thus Clara, both the owner of the wyvern and the caster of this spell, would be acquitted.
A Rego Imaginem Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 (Gorax) Gorax's body
A Muto Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 Gorax's Body
"A spell used by Gorax on himself. Probably, though not certainly, unimportant."
A Muto Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude: 0 (Valeria) - Make someone's eyes stick out on stalks? Courtyard
"What is this spell? I admit I am clueless. Unless it is a botched attempt at something I don't quite understand ..."
A Muto Terram Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 (Gorax) Covenant Wall
"This was probably used by Gorax to enter the Covenant."
A Creo Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 (Clara) Gorax's Body
"Hmm, so Clara -- the same maga who cast the mysterious Creo Ignem spell -- tried to heal Gorax. Or did she simply pretend she tried to heal him, leaving clear evidence for the quaesitores?
A Creo Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 (Valeria) Courtyard
"Possibly the spell used on the injured grog."
A Perdo Aquam Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 Courtyard, Tower Ruins, Library
"The spell correctly used to get rid of the water after the fire was quenched."
An Intellego Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 Pit
"What was this spell used for? Possibly to find Gorax's body, which would have been difficult given his Rego Imaginem spell."
An Intellego Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 Tower Ruins
"This was probably used to investigate the fate of Antonius"
An Intellego Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 - detect the presence of life in a body Pit, Gorax's Body
"A reasonable inquiry ..."
A Creo Corpus Spell: Trace Magnitude 0 - Bind Wounds Courtyard
"Some more healing..."
Aegis of the Hearth - Active - Sixth Magnitude Covenant
"And the shield of our Order. And a fairly strong shield, I may say, one which would have seriously hampered Gorax's efforts -- as the covenant magi undoubtedly knew".
