Now that we have the thread up, maybe we should start working on the covenant building.
Insula Canaria is almost 80 years, and deep into winter. With 12(!) people signing on, if we go with High Power, that means everyone can contribute 200 Build Points for whatever. It's Winter and High Power, so no limit on lab text level/level of effect in enchanted device. Although if you build a Death Star with your 200 points, you will get the scowling of a lifetime.
Note also that you only have to spend Build Points for Specialists if they're not fleshed out. If they have a full character sheet posted on the wiki, they're free. It only cost points if you have something like "Aristotle, Teacher, Com 3 + Teaching 5 + Artes Liberales 7 = 15 BP".
In addition, the magi can bring up to 75 build points of their own personal equipment, texts, people, etcetera – either for their own use or as largesse.
There are some things that are what I consider a "must" for the covenant, and won't count against the point contribution and/or the Hook/Boon balance you come up with.
- Limited Aura: The island of Eilean Chon has an Aura of 6.
- Seclusion: Insula Canaria is located in a remote part of the Highlands, 15 miles from the nearest city (Inverness), and 75 to the nearest good-sized city (Elgin)
- [strike]Vast Aura: There is an Aura that encompasses the entire Loch, up the the tree line.[/strike]
- Monster: Niseag, the Loch Ness Monster, inhabits the loch, and her eggs are one of the covenant's Vis sources.
I also have a list of Lab Texts that I will be putting in the Library if no one else does. Some canon, some original.
