Post-Gauntlet years for Attravere

Mostly just numbers at the moment. Slowly inputting the bread and butter of events.

Met elder Mercurian Magus, Alessandro, began study of Parma Magica Summa at his advising. Introduced to Harco's impressive collection of texts and trinkets from around the world.
Read Parma Summa, +16xp Parma Magica
Got acquainted with a few of the lovely young women at one of Mercere's many "Resthouses".
Continued study of Parma Magica.

Grew tired of Parma, read up text on Leap of Homecoming Mastery. Alessandro understanding. Somewhat. "Youth. I remember it."
+12 xp Mastery of Leap of Homecoming.
House Mercere takes care of its own. Attravere is the father of a lovely, mundane, baby girl. Alessandro has an enlightening "discussion" with Attravere regarding the fine merits virility and the MANY follies of indiscretion.
Felt able to stomach some more Parma Magica after the joys of becoming a father. Additionally being able to cover both daughter and mother in Parma would be nice.

Inspired to Re-discover Magic of Mercere Portals while chatting with Redcaps. Told by Alessandro that "Older, wiser, BETTER magi have tried. Perhaps once you've learned all there is to learn from our texts on Rego, Terram and Magic theory you might have a chance of gleaning some small information. It is a... worthwhile pursuit... I suppose." Immediately started.

Celebrate's daughter's first birthday. May have visited a few other cities in Greece and Spain in the meantime.

Seeking a different approach to Mercere Portals.
Read Rego Summa +16xp Rego

[strike]Find Maribus[/strike]
Investigate Mercere Portal
Create spell/item for use of Mercere Portal
Ensure covenant vis sources are retained

  • Maribus is still a standing member as covenant charter doesn't require normal service from a magus mercere.
  • Thus covenant arguably has 3 members (Liliana, Maribus and Lamentus) from the previous tribunal.
    Ensure covenant finances are in order.
  • Reduce costs. Perhaps some enchanted devices or rituals?
  • Increase income. Find new sources or improve existing ones.
    Take an apprentice.

Background: Born of an Italian Redcap father and a mundane mother, Attravere was brought to the attention of House Mercere at a tender age and apprenticed to Maribus of Mercere the day after his fifth birthday. A fine teacher, yet cognizant of House Mercere's desire for more gifted individuals Maribus impressed loyalty to the house and the many benefits that came with with being the blood of Mercere. Impressionable and eager to please Attravere took quickly to his lessons.

Upon completion of his Gauntlet the young magus was sent to Harco to study mastery texts and the Parma Magica under the tutelage of Alessandro of Mercere. Coached on some of the different manners in which to aid the house, Attravere took well to assisting his sodales and made friends among redcaps in nearly every tribunal, though primarily in those of his apprenticeship and Domus Magna.

Notice came of Maribus' disappearance half a year after his gauntlet, however it was not uncommon for the renowned Aquam Magus to disappear for seasons at a time. The length of disappearance however grew to a year, then two, then more. Visits by Attravere to Gallus Florensis yielded no useful information regarding his Parens' disappearance. After the fifth year of Maribus' absence several elders of House Mercere decided that the Stonehenge Tribunal had gone too long without a Magus Mercere and thus assigned his filius, Attravere, to the post.

Lady Sinmore is a towering eight feet tall with a ruddy complexion and lots of freckles. She has striking good looks aside from her tremendous height, with flaming red hair and brilliant green eyes, and an expressive face. She usually wears a leather cuirass with metal rings and wields an enormous great sword, which she carries on a sheathe at her hip as most men would store a normal sized sword. She often wears a large heavy cloak and can easily be mistaken for a huge man when doing so.

Tytalus is not the only House that likes a good challenge. Flambeau have a long history of awarding renown and prestige to their members that perform notable deeds. The flashiest spell, the most interesting familiar, slaying the most dangerous beast. For Willaim Du Soleil his accomplishment was in his claim that he actually brought back a giant child from the Magic Realm of Muspelheim and trained her as his apprentice. William claimed some renown for this alleged feat, but had a hard time actually proving it. She learned as much as she could about her alleged parents and people and land of her birth and also took on the name of Lady Sinmore, the bride and daughter of Surtur. Her apprenticeship ended with her succesful Gauntlet (which also destroyed several bandits and a swath of forest near York) and has studied while on the road as well as train as she seeks a new Covenant, but lacked a decent lab or library (I concentrated all her xp in raising and buying skills). She's been having strange dreams lately and feels that she's being watched and has a feeling of destiny that she's quite afraid of. She's not sure what she believes in, she was raised in her Covenant and told stories of Muspelheim by William, but all the other Magi she's spoken to (plus her own observances) have said that William was a braggart at best and a liar at worst. But she's begun to worry that Surtur will actually come to claim Sinmore as his namesake bride. She's seeking a new Covenant, but doesn't want to travel outside of the Stonehenge Tribunal at this time.

Here are the updated totals, with 165 xp (33 per year) for 5 years, plus 15 xp for Covenant duties; 1 season of Covenant duties a year for 5 years at 3 xp per Covenant season.

Glen is a sturdy young man with a cocky swagger to his walk and a very confident smile on his lips. He dresses as a man of the forest and is comfortable living there as well as trading stories over a mug at the ale house.

Born and raised in Wales, Glen became a Yeoman at an early age and became a champion of the longbow shortly after he was strong enough to draw it. He's campaigned aganst the French more than once, and has picked up a strong dislike of them.

He's used to being paid and treated well for his skill. He doesn't take orders so well, he sees himself as a specialist, not just an ordinary soldier.

Roleplaying hint:
"Well Magister we could hit 'em just as you say...but we'd lose half our men. Even a bloody frenchie could see that. But just give me a few minutes, I can get within bow range and put a shaft in the leader's eye. That'll take the fight out of 'em! And then we're back at the tavern pinchin' the ladies' bottoms!"

Timothy is a tall strapping youth, and he still looks like he's growing. He wears his father's armor and weapons.

Tim's father was a mercenary that took his money and retired as a miller. His son was enamored with the stories his father told, and he grew large and strong helping in the mill. His father let him train and use his old gear. Tim left milling with his father's blessing and he's become a mercenary, though doesn't know much about it yet. He's still wet behind the ears, and half deaf from when he got sick as a child. Sinmore's Pater William Du Soleil found Timothy's father while on campaign and took him on as a shield grog, Sinmore met young Timothy at the time and heard his desires to become a warrior like his father. He prefers fighting with a polearm, but can handle a shield well enough (he needs to be equipped with one, right now he has no shield). Sinmore has sent for him to come and work at the Covenant.

Roleplaying hint:
"A whole castle full of 'em? (Gulp) No problem lord! I've got me father's pole arm and it never failed him!"

EDIT changed his background a bit, he'd be too young to act as a Shield grog for Sinmore's pater.

Also dropped Custos virtue and gave him the Free Wanderer Social virtue and the Warrior Minor Virtue. The 50 xp was spent evenly between Great Weapon and Single Weapon.

Here is the craftsman Grog, a boatmaker and dockworker, who can also teach some of his rather rare skills. If any of his history or personal info needs to be changed please let me know.

Personality Traits:
Romantic +1
Hardworker +1

A red haired and stocky man of obvious Norwegian descent. He dresses in work clothes and wears a palpable smell of fish on him that’s detectable yards away. He keeps his hair cut short and has a bright smile with amazingly white teeth.

Erik learned is craft from one who claimed he was an actual descendant of the Norse raiders that plagued England, but unfortunately couldn't finish before his master died. As his apprentice he learned boatmaking and fishing and when his master died hetravelled to a place that his master said had some of the best fish and a master shipwright; at the Lighthouse. He showed the residents pretty quickly that he had skill with the hammer and saw and set to work repairing the boats and docks for his new master Maribus. He’s been with the Covenant ever since. He has a particular fondness for Sholem the Milkman’s 3rd daughter, Chava, but has been told quite bluntly to stay away. He often pines while he works and thinks of ways he might win over her parents and has not given up hope yet; his latest scheme is to teach others how to swim, a rather rare skill. He sometimes is accused or mistaken for the Norwegian warriors that have plagued Europe, but he has no attachment to them whatsoever and is thoroughly Anglicized.

Roleplaying Hints:
“Aye m’lord, I can fix that small hole in the boat, won’t take long at all, and afterwards I’ll show ye where to find the best fish. Do ye think ye might do me a favor and put in a good word for me with the Milkman?”

EDIT corrected any reference to his nationality to Norwegian.

    Appearance: Morwyn is a but mature woman with a benevolent smile and scruffy black hair that she keeps in check with simple knotted kerchief. If she possessed the requisite fetishes, Morwyn would be able to assume the shapes of a pony, raven, or fox.
    Mark: The colour silver.
    Rough Background: Morwyn comes from a long-line of Folk Witches, being trained by her mother in the arts midwifery and herbcraft from her earliest years before being fostered to one of her aunts on her thirteenth birthday to begin her apprenticeship in earnest.
    During the 10 years that she studied under her Aunt, young Morwyn increased her knowledge of the mundane and magical healing arts and was initiated into the mystery of Flight. At the end of her training, the young folk witch gathered her things and returned to her mother’s cottage only to find that the older woman had died the previous autumn.
    Unfamiliar with her mother’s coven, Morwyn traveled to the nearby county of Flintshire in the hopes of establishing herself as a herbwife/midwife in that growing community. Unfortunately, business was slow and Morwyn suffered terrible hardships, initiating herself into Shapeshifter just to survive the bitter winters. Since that first rough year, Morwyn’s practice has taken off despite her relative youth and she now enjoys a small, but loyal clientele.

Goals: While Morwyn would probably say her main goal is to get her mother to stop nagging her, she would be upset if the ghost were destroyed or imprisoned and rather enjoys the company – most of the time. Morwyn would also like to learn more about her father (something her mother actively discourages), having often heard hushed whispers of his supernatural origins (he could just as easily have been a married man or the village idiot, of course). Likewise, while Morwyn politely disregards her mother’s requests that she join a coven, the young witch has found herself envying the young mothers she treats and might be interested in obtaining a child either via adoption or the old-fashioned way - though she might find an apprentice/familiar an acceptable substitute?

Advancement Log:
Summer 1221: Gathered herbs (2 XP in Profession: Apothecary and 18 Labor Points).

Appearance: A wiry young Welshman with wavy black hair, a thick beard and kind eyes. Years of caring for his brother have given the quiet young woodsman a maturity beyond his years.
Rough Background: After their father was killed in a forestry accident, Llwyd’s mother sent her boys to live with their grandmother in Flintshire where they were put in charge of provisioning the firewood – Llwyd selecting and felling the dead trees and chopping the wood into manageable chunks and Dafydd carrying the wood back to their cottage.
After a few more years, however, the brothers’ grandmother passed away and the siblings, now nearly grown, were compelled to seek employment elsewhere and soon found themselves at Gallus Florensis where they were hired as the covenant’s new woodsmen.

Goals: Llwyd is primarily concerned well-being of his family, especially his younger brother Dafydd so he’s easily drawn into stories involving his extended family. In addition to felling trees, the brothers were also tasked with keeping the covenant’s magi apprised of anything unusual they encounter on their frequent forays into the forest.

Autumn 1221: Chopped firewood (2 XP in Profession: Woodcutter).

Appearance: Dafydd resembles a more muscular, less handsome version of his older brother.
Rough Background: After their father was killed in a forestry accident, Dafydd’s mother sent her boys to live with their grandmother in Flintshire where they were put in charge of provisioning the firewood – Llwyd selecting and felling the dead trees and chopping the wood into manageable chunks and Dafydd carrying the wood back to their cottage.
After a few more years, however, the brothers’ grandmother passed away and the siblings, now nearly grown, were compelled to seek employment elsewhere and soon found themselves at Gallus Florensis where they were hired as the covenant’s new woodsmen.

Goals: While he has no long-term goals per se, Dafydd is easily drawn into stories involving his brother or anyone else who needs help (Soft-Hearted). Additionally, covenfolk in need of muscle may think to impress the good-natured Dafydd into service only to regret the decision when his “Clumsy” flaw comes into play.

Appearance: Micah is a cherubic young boy with wavy brown hair and large expressive eyes.
Rough Background: Micah was born at Gallus Florensis and has lived there all of his life. Exhibiting an affinity with animals almost from birth, the supernatural nature of Micah’s talent has only recently become evident to his parents whose attempts to get their son to use his powers “productively” have resulted in frustration and resentment by both parties.

Goals: Like most six year olds, Micah lacks any long-term aspirations. He does, however, try his very best to be helpful (though his efforts are rarely appreciated) so he can easily be drawn into stories involving his child or animal friends. Additionally, Micah’s at the age where he’s being entrusted with simple chores, some of which are bound to conflict with the needs of his animal friends. Finally, Mythic Europe is home to all sorts of beasties who specifically prey on bad little boys and girls – should Micah ever develop a negative Reputation, his trips into the forest could suddenly become a lot more dangerous. Edit: I did some additional research on childhood in the Medieval period and it seems that Micah ought to be swapping out his gown for his first set of trousers soon too, which might count as a goal.

Appearance: Piskin, when he allows himself to be seen, appears as a large fluffy brown tabby distinguishable from similarly marked tomcats his collar. Apart from his collar, Piskin bears an uncanny resemblance to the ferocious Scottish Wildcat (Felis silvestris grampia) which sometimes results in farmers throwing stones or siccing dogs on the poor kitty...
Rough Background: Piskin was born in Flintshire, one among an ordinary batch of barn-kittens and knew very early that he was different from his siblings. When his mother chased him from her territory a few months later, as mother cats are wont to do, the little feline headed for Gallus Florensis, drawn by the covenant’s strong Magic aura.
After spending several frustrating days trying to breach the Aegis of the Hearth, one of the covenant’s magi noticed the cat and ordered him brought inside to combat an infestation of fire-breathing mice. Piskin, as the covenfolk called him, made short work of the mice and eventually managed to endear himself to the covenfolk of Gallus Florensis, making judicious use of his Blackberry Cat power to cover his petty thefts and various other faux pas.

Goals: Piskin dearly wants to change his name – he didn’t realize the word meant kitten when he adopted it as his moniker and, as a nearly full-sized cat, feels he’s outgrown it. His Pride, however, won’t let him accept just any name, it has to be perfect! Other than that, Piskin is your typical cat – he enjoys hunting, fighting, napping in sunbeams, and occasionally accompanying lil’ Micah on his adventures in and around Gallus Florensis.

Appearance: Michiel is a mature heavily set man with a weathered face and no left ear.
Rough Background: The son of villeins in southern England, Michiel was expelled from his lord’s lands when he was fifteen after failing to get permission to marry his love. Turned away by other lords and unable to find work in the towns, Michiel joined a mercenary band to avoid starvation. Fighting bravely in battles all over Britain, Michiel’s skill earned him a number of promotions until he lost his left ear during a tavern brawl with an Irishman.
Although he was still physically fit enough for combat, Michiel decided to take the pay he’d earned over the years and settle down instead. The former soldier returned home where he rented a small plot of land and married his lover, dreaming of making a life together.
Unfortunately, tragedy struck and his wife died in childbirth. Terribly distraught, Michiel let his crops wither and die and was evicted once again. Growing older and no longer possessing the right temperament for war, Michiel instead sought employment as a guardsman. Possessing excellent references, he was readily accepted by the good magi of Gallus Florensis.

Goals: Michiel throws himself into his work so that he can forget about life. To say that he’s depressed would be incorrect, for Michiel still experiences moments of great joy and sadness, though they are rare and often fleeting. Michiel is designed as a standard soldier grog and military encounters are what he does best though he possesses a number of other useful skills.

Iapetus Background
He grew up in northern Spain, the bastard child of a young nobleman. He was packed away to be raised by the nervous servants by his grandparents, and had begun to learn the basics of education despite his blossoming Gift when a passing Magus heard of the strange boy through local rumors. The Magus was an impulsive Apromor Flambeaux of modest experience, who rushed to claim the Gifted boy as an apprentice. Trouble picked up, of course, when the vibrant young apprentice's lack of ability with Perdo came into obvious being. As his tutelage continued, it became obvious that despite his lack of skill with his master's chosen Art, he was bright enough to be useful for lab work at least.
His teacher grew more frustrated and more hash with the apprentice, until finally he declared the apprentice unfit for the gauntlet yet and decided he needed another couple years training to be qualified as an Apromor. Iapetus used his limited magical skills to destroy any arcane connections to him held in the lab, and he ran to seek a new master. Thanks to his learning of the Order's ways and a lot of luck, he managed to find a Tytalus with a grudge against the Flambeaux who challenged for right to teach the apprentice and promptly trounced the apprentice's former master. After a year of service to his new Mentor, the newly christened Iapetus passed his gauntlet challenge and became a true Magus.
For his last year training, Iapetus was taken to Brittania, and he found himself in strange and foreign soil. Iapetus capitalized on his charm and his singing voice to survive despite his lack of skill with the local language. He began to pick up the language as well as some skills for survival, and he began travelling around the tribunal, seeking entertainment, seeking challenges, and seeking teaching. In particular, he sought out local legends of magical things, magical creatures, and the like.

Description: Cygna is a tall, rather thin, long-necked woman. Her hair is snow white, save for a black bar at each temple, and is worn long and flowing. She normally wears it either beneath the collar of her Hermetic robes or down the back of her everyday garb. Her eyes are piercing black, and her nose is thin and angular, with a noticeable bump. Her skin has the tan of a pale woman who has spent a fair bit of time in the Iberian sun. Her Hermetic robes are a greyish-white and plain, while she normally wears normal English peasant dress most of the time (when outside the lab or not at Council meetings, etc). This, obviously, will change for the duration of her time as a provisional member.

Helpful: +2
Meek: +1
Reckless: +3


Nasira bint 'Abbas was, as near as anyone around her could tell, a relatively normal child in the little village of La Lantejuela. Well, except for the whole not-getting-along-with-others thing, and being exceptionally bright (especially for a girl). Her father was somewhat relieved when Salamandrus scholae Flambonis came and offered to take her off of their hands, taking her back to the Covenant of the Phoenix. It didn't take long for Nasira to settle into being Salamandrus's apprentice. She was enjoying learning new things and was in awe of what she thought she could do once she had become a maga like the others, and she was fascinated by the strange new place she was different from La Lantejuela.

Then, in the year 607 (or 1210, by the Christian reckoning), she was assisting Salamandrus in some laboratory work when something went terribly wrong. The last thing she remembers from that day was a bright flash of light and a near-deafening crackling sound. The rubble of Salamandrus's laboratory gave mute testimony to the fact that she is blessed to be alive today. The explosion critically injured her, though, and while a casting of Incantation of the Body Made Whole was able to keep her from dying, it was not able to heal the scars caused by the magical explosion. Furthermore, the explosion, mystical in nature, somehow ripped the Gift from her body, although those around her still react as though she did have The Gift.

Unable to ever work magic, all but unbearable to look at*, and with no hope of returning to the family that was happy to see her leave, the child decided to remain at Phoenix. Taking the name of Claudia (which, in turn comes from the Latin claudus, which means “lame” or “crippled”, reflecting how she now feels after losing the Gift) and being cursed with the memory of her potential, she made the difficult decision to help the magi in whatever way she could. She still retains her knack for learning Magic Theory, and has a gift for scribing as well, which makes her feel like she's less of a burden on the now-decimated covenant than before.

Recent years have been difficult for Claudia, due to the growing infighting between Jaime Lannister scholae Flambonis and the new magi of the covenant. With the founder's imminent censure at the Tribunal and the decision of the magi to go their own way, it has become obvious that Phoenix is on its deathbed, and has accepted Cygna's invitation to accompany her to England.

  • As an aside, it was after the accident that Nisara decided to start wearing the burka, despite her being a simple village girl - Allah would forgive her presumption, as long as looking at her would detract others from what is right.

Description: Celestria is, frankly, make-you-forget-your-vows beautiful. She is slender and petite, with long brown hair, bright green eyes, flawless sandy-colored skin, and curves in all the right places. She usually dresses to accentuate her appearance, with gowns or tunics that are cut to accentuate her curves, and short enough to show off her legs.

Personality: She knows that she's incredibly beautiful, but doesn't let it get to her head. She is neither stuck-up nor excessively vain, but simply accepts her great beauty as a fact of life. She is not, however, above using her looks and her wiles to get her way. She had worked hard to earn the epithet “the Willing” in Duos Flumen, having seduced practically every able-bodied person in and around the covenant. Unfortunately, it didn't matter to her whether the man she was with was already in a relationship (or married). This would earn her the enmity of practically every able-bodied woman in the covenant. She has not let this deter her from having her fun, however – if the men were serious about their marriage, they could simply tell her “no.” Even the men she's not actively pursuing, she has a tendency to flirt with...witty banter, friendly touches, not-quite-sisterly pecks on the cheek. The women of the covenant finally started to band against her to make her life a little more difficult, to the point where she agreed to accompany Cygna when the maga left for Iberia in 1213. She was only there a few days before the former head maid abdicated and named Celestria (who, at the time, didn't speak five words of Castilian) her successor. She took her new position seriously (as seriously as she takes anything, anyway), learning the local language and trying to get along with the women. Seeing as how the covenant had a serious Gender Imbalance (due to almost all the men being lost as the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa. She was not above using her position to her advantage, having herself assigned to tend to the better-looking visitors on occasion.

Celestria has a son, born in 1217, by the name of Rodrigo. If she knows who the father is, she's not saying.

Like Cygna, Hiems comes from Phoenix Covenant.
After the start of the saga, his priority were in getting his Muto and Vim to a high enough level that he could contribute to the Aegis through Wizard's Communion.
Due to the infernal spirit plaguing Lady Cygna, he thereafter endeavored to learn and master Demon's Eternal Oblivion, hoping to someday be able to destroy the spirit plaguing her. In the meantime, this would ensure he's be able to protect somewhat his sodales. That is, if he wasn't befallen first. He thus spent 1 year learning Parma Magica, in order to resist most creatures powers. He spend some time increasing his arts, until the moment where he and his sodales had to face wizard's war due to Jaime's actions and enemies. He survived, but barely. He thus endeavored to spend another year increasing his Parma Magica, and also to learn and master an indirect spell, to be able to strike at foes which had too high a MR. In the throes of the Phoenix's death, he was learning and practicing on his Finesse towards that goal.

He wants very little, being quite depressive since his love, under the advice of her confessor (which may or not have been a pious man, a jealous man, a holy man or a demon's thrall. More on that in his background) spurned him. Quite reclusive, too, since being alone and quiet is almost the only way for him to have a semblance of peace. This suits him, as his beauty often brings him all kind of unwanted attention. Nonetheless, he holds chevalrous ideals, and believes that he should protect the weak. He especially can't resist a Damsel in distress: Although a woman may very well be able to fend for herself, and he recognize this fully, he can't help but feel it as his duty to protect them. Should he seek something, it'll be among these two lines: Find a way to create a "fortress of solitude" for him, and become a magical champion for those who need him. Before his loss, he was somewhat interested in ancient legends and seeker lore, so this may hold his interest, but unless something stumbles upon him, he won't go for it. Not any more.
