Do we want to have a non-Gifted member on the Council of Members
Do we agree to Charmion's request that she be granted a veto in the Council of Members for any vote pertaining to the spring?
This was my idea so I won't have an opinion.
Do we want to have a censure vote require a 2/3 majority or a simple majority?
Do we want to have any kind of punishment short of censure and expulsion (both pretty severe)?
Yes - if we use the shard system then that could be used, otherwise we should think of something else. Even a formal warning, entered into the record, with no other effects, would serve to warn a magus that they're on the way to being censured if they don't change their ways.
Do we want to use a system of covenant shards and covenant tokens or not?
I'd prefer not, as it feels like too much complexity, but if the majority of the group wants it then I'm not too bothered. If we don't have it in the charter to start with, the council could vote to add it to the charter later if they feel it's needed. It feels like a lot of bureaucracy which a long-established covenant might have, but a group of magi starting their own covenant probably wouldn't have to start off with.
What amount of service, if any, do we want to require of our Full Members?
I don't know how to judge this. Two or four seasons per seven-year period sound reasonable.
Do we want to have it in our charter that we maintain a guest lab, or do we want to handle that question on the fly?
I'd handle that question on the fly - a guest lab might be a good idea, but we could do it without it being in the charter. Again this is something we could add to the charter later.
Are we happy with three tiers of people at the covenant (Protected Guests, Probationary Members, and Full Members)?
I'm happy with these three tiers. I'm guessing that theses levels apply to magi, i.e. a Protected Guest is specifically a magus who is staying at the covenant but isn't a member, and mundanes aren't in this system?
If the player character magi are founding the covenant together, I assume they'd all start as Full Members - so Probationary Member is mostly there as a level for them to be knocked down to if they are censured.
