As Havlard begins to prepare for fixing up some of the town with magic by walking the length of the road and looking for piles of stone. After the first day Marcello walks with him talking about one house or another. He is not sure Havlard is even listening but Marcello thinks that the mage may be able to repair some of the worst houses by magic.
Reluctant townfolk move rocks into piles. Many of them grumble about it. "Fix the road? we are not even piling the stones near the road." Marcello is invaluable in convincing the townfolk to help even a little bit. "
"It is all frozen mud with great ruts. I'm not digging in frozen ground."
"we've done no digging. The scholar::spit:: just has us mark the boundary of the road. Like he can't see it. bah!"
Havlard's first spell is a level 10 ReTe (Ig req for frozen ground)(CT 19) roll = 23
Leveling of the Rutted Road (Inst, mom, boundary)
The spell moves earth on a marked boundary to level it.
The spell is done at night ( when Havlard is most powerful). Those townfolk that are awake hear the far off baying of hounds.
The next day the townfolk are amazed. All the marked roads are slightly built up and leveled. While a bit scared of the strangeness of it they seemed pleased and are more talkative to Marcello when he passes through.
A day or so passes while Havlard rests. On the third night, while the moon is 3/4 full, Havlard casts his next spell.
ReTe10 March of the Cobbles (Inst, Moment, group)(CT 19) roll = 22
Moves piles of stones into a boundary and lines them up. Stones roll across the ground in single file and line up in rows within the boundry.
((I will need s finesse roll but I need to wait until I get home to check my book))
Havlard is mildly surprised that all of the houses are still standing ( knowing the chaotic nature of his magic).
He knows he can not leave the stones here because the townfolk would move them so he must begin try to set them.
ReTe10 (Req Pr, Ig) Road maker's friend(CT 19) roll = 21 Shape and sink stones within a boundary into the ground. The Perdo requirement smooths and levels the stones as they sink into the ground. The Igium requirement is because the ground is frozen.
Havlard is a bit more than winded now so he heads back inside to keep reading Soaring like the Birds

((I made my rolls before I wrote the story. I had one extra roll there because I thought I would need it but as I wrote I found that I did not.))
