Thread gathering of information on the attacks on the Order, by the yet unidentified powerful forces. Happy for rumours and thoughts to go here, and when/if you get close we'll use this thread. Previously:
Toward the middle of the season an unexpected visit from the Redcap Frederick, with the news that many covenants in the Order have been attacked. The exact number of strikes was unknown to Frederick. Though the conversations with Frederick you learned that:
The attacks all occurred with a few hours of each other, and most had a high degree of sympathy with natural or elemental magic.
The loss of life is expected to be extremely high, including many Magi.
The Aegis of the Hearth for some covenants helped protect some, but not all of the attacks indicating that a range of magical effects was used.
Durenmar (Domus Magna of House Bonisagus, in the Rhine Tribunal) was inflicted with an earthquake, which caused major damage to parts of the covenant, although the Great Library is intact.
Coeris (DM of Tremere, in the Transylvania)
Magvillus (DM of Guernicus, in Romany)
Fudarus (DM of Tytalus, in Normandy) as
Cad Gadu (DM of House Ex Miscellanea, in the Stonehenge) was struck by a cascading lightning storm for almost one hour.
The most brutal and effective attack was on La Fière in Normandy, where a massive mountainside was dropped on the covenant. No survivors have been found as yet.
Angulus in Hibernian tribunal was a coastal covenant, which was washed into the ocean. Some magi survived, but most grogs were killed.
As yet no covenants in Scotland (Loch Leglean) and only one covenant in Ireland (Hibernia) are known to be attacked.
The Tribunal of the Greater Alps, Rhine, and the Normandy tribunals had the greatest number of strikes, although these covenants also withstood the attacks far better than some in other tribunals.
Many of the covenant magi wrote to their associates to find news.
