The magi meet in the council chamber. Justus has as usual made sure that the table is covered with good food and excellent wine. The wine of the evening is golden and from the Rihne.
As usual Justus summons the covenfolk. All of the covenfolk bows in turns as their name are called. [color=red]Iâ€™ll let them speak in turns and then we can ask them questions.
Erich is allowed to speak first.[color=red] Erich is a forceful man who speaks with a stern voice. The milita is doing fine and there is nothing new to report. We keep the law and order.
Gunter is a slender man with a cruel look upon his face and speaks with a soft voice. [color=red]Our funds are still decreasing we have 70 pounds of silver left. The new tax system has yet to yield results. There are a number of craftsmen that wish to set up shop, there are many Jews amongst them. They could be the solution to our problems. But there is a problem, we are running out of space to construct buildings. We must start to chop down some trees and expand into the forest.
Horst is next one to speak. His average height and has a sturdy body can easily mistake him for a peasant rather than the head of the villagers. [color=red]I have some information from Kolberg. There seems to have been some prosecution of Jews in Kolberg and so there have been a surge of people who wish to set up their homes here. Magi are known to accept minorities. As Gunter mentioned, there is a housing problem. I see two solutions, either we expand into the forest. That is the easiest soulution or we restructure the village surrounding the covenant. The houses are somewhat haphazard built and the space could be used more efficient.
Father Gerald steps forward and starts to speak. [color=red]The spiritual state of the covenfolk leaves somethings to be desired, as always. Too much sin and vices. There a den of drinking and gambling that I would wish that you see too that it ceases to exist. It will harm the moral fibre of the population. I am most outraged by the situation. Oh and by the way. Those other have been attending my church though I can still hear and get information about some very weird religious ideas.
Once the covenfolk has left the magi Justus asks. [color=red]I would like to receive some information on what happened at the Novgorod covenant. I did see that no claims of accusation where thrown at us at the tribunal, so I assume that we are safe for the moment. I have recived two letters with some friendly requests, one from a magus at Durenmar and another from a magus called Stanislaw, our new ally. The Durenmar magus wish that I locate a Rune artefact for him, I have some instructions that tells me to go looking for a Troll named Torwald. The other letter contains instructions to go looking for an agent of Constantia, Boris the Red that is maintaining some operation in the vicinity of Kolberg. I have a name of a Karl at the inn of the Grey Boar that is our contact in Kolberg. Perhaps we should start with the domestic issues.
