(Starting a second story that happens after the current investigation of the pillars. There shouldn't be too much interaction between the two.)
Midway through summer, Bernhard drops by with a troubled expression. He asks to meet with all three magi to discuss some news. The meeting takes place at the inn. Of course, when faced with them all, the redcap starts to stammer.
"Er...Ye...yes, I... hmm... I got news about oth... other magi... who cou..cou..could maybe.. err... want to join the cove... covent... I mean... covenant?" He wipes his brow before continuing. Apparently, there are two magi who might be interesting prospects for the covenant. One is a Jerbiton magus from the Greater Alps, who has been travelling the Rhine for a few months. He is apparently something of an Aquam specialist.
But Bernhard also heard from the Bonisagus healer who failed to show up to a meeting with Japik last summer. He contacted Bernhard again, saying that his reason for not showing up was because of sickness of a dependent. He would like to have another meeting.
(OOC: This is the hook to introduce Flavius' magus. But I also heard back from Trogdor, who was supposed to join the saga last August. The current magi can decide to accept one or both of them. But if they decide to accept both of them, there will be a problem with the number of labs. However, don't worry if your magi decide not to allow Trogdor to join, since I have a backup plan for him -- I can let him join the sister saga instead. So this should be a decision based on your magi's priorities.)
