Gregorius will share the gist of the information he gains from the letters from Hadrianus and Boustaphan with the covenant.
"It sounds as though Tasia isn't returning, at least any time soon. However, she hasn't formally resigned from the covenant. How do you think we should proceed - should we rule her to no longer be a member? Create a new position of absentee member?"
He'll give the casting tablet to Viola. "Boustaphan offered to lend us a lab text to learn the spell, at any reasonable magnitude. We have our own lab text at the fifth magnitude - is it worth requesting something higher? We have a reasonable stock of vim, for now, so could afford the drain on our coffers for a while without having to start extracting from the aura."
[OOC: I think Viola's relevant lab total is actually ReVi, at Int 4 + Re 9 + Vi 5 + MT 8 + Aura 5 + 8 Familiar = 39? Although there's the issue that she needs to be able to cast the spell as well - her total there is Sta 2 + Re 9 + Vi 5 + AL 3 + Ph 2 + Aura 6 + stress die = 27. She can't be more than 10 levels under the spell level for the ritual to work, so she should be able to make a level 35 spell fairly comfortably, but might need to expend a confidence point for a level 40 one.]
