Time to sign the charter of the covenant Since it is our own charter I open this thread to discuss alterations to the charter of the covenant listed in the Triamore book (p.34-35).
There are actually 3 charters here.
- The Imperial charter
- The Oath of Hermes.
- The charter of triamore (covenant)
This will be glossed over since we do not have all the details, but it is the one that says we are an imperial immediacy and the magi have the status of knights (without actually being knights)
A note from an insert in triamore about it simperial charter
The Lord of Bois de Haillot
The manor of Bois de Haillot must, by charter, be held by a nobleman; the elected leader of the covenant serves this role. The current leader is Daria, who is known as Lady Daria LaGris of Bois de Haillot to the temporal world. This does not make Daria a titled noblewoman — rather, she enjoys a status equivalent to a knight: an unlanded gentle whose status is not hereditary.
Bois de Haillot’s unusual charter allows the holder to choose his or her successor “from among the Knights and Ladies abiding in that place, which owe fealty to no other Lord.” In effect, this allows the covenant to choose its own leaders from among its magi, all of whom are considered to be knights in her service. For more details on this charter and the management of Bois de Haillot, see Chapter 4.
OATH OF HERMES
A legacy thing. it includes all the weird stuff and quirks in the original Oath. Nobody knows who bonisagus is, but you agree to give him your apprentice anyway if he asks. Important to get Parma Magica (but you need to be Gifted).
This is the charter of the covenant. Modifications over what it says in the Triamore Book are welcome.
As listed in page 28-29 of the book you are joining on a probationary basis (all rights and obligations except the right to vote at council), so besides the fact that you are not Hermetic Magi, everything should apply if nobody voices concern.
