The Hearth of the Covenant (from Cath'rinne) Despite the name, this item is actually a one foot diamater hickory-and-brass carving of a sun, made to be hanged on a wall. If the hearth touches a wall, it produces a warm heat that rapidly spreads through the structure to envelop it. Any laboratory in the structure receives the Magical Heating virtue (Free, +1 Health, +1 Aesthetics, +1 Ignem). If used in a general covenant area, the maximum cost saving is 5 MP per year for consumables. Effect Level 25: CrIg 20 spell (Base 2, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +3 Structure), +3 environmental trigger, +2 three uses per day
The Wayfarer's Friend (Thomas ex Merinita) (35): a silver ring enchanted with one effect: Piercing the Faerie Veil (as per ArM 5e p. 158). R: Touch. D: Sun. T: Vision. 24 uses per day.
Stone-Cutting Knife: (Thomas ex Merinita) ReTe 15 Pen +0, unlimited uses R: Touch, D: Mom, T: Part (Covenants p. 52)

The Marksman's Bow (Thomas ex Merinita, held by Turold) Rego Herbam 15 (Base 3, +3 Sight)(+5 levels for 24 uses a day) A beautifully carved and crafted bow of ash and yew, which is enchanted so that arrows fired are unerringly directed by the bowman. When activated by command word arrows can travel as far as the bowman can see, and cannot miss, but are also resisted by MR. When activated the arrows inflict +10 damage. Bow shape grants a lab bonus of +5 for "destroying things at a distance". Granted to Turold
The Ring of Urgent Healing (Thadeus) (CrCo 25) – This lesser enchanted ring stabilizes the wounds of a person of up to size +4, as per the Bind Wound spell. (Base 3, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +1 Size; +10 levels for Unlimited uses)
Chest of preservation (Sionag) (CrAn(He) 20) – This wooden box is designed to preserve the flavor and freshness of any food placed inside. While it won't improve the quality or restore faded food to its original qualities, it does guarantee that any food placed inside will come out in exactly the same condition. It's big enough to store just butchered game, plus a few extra vegetables. (About 3 fts x 2fts x 2 fts)
Note that the effect only lasts within the chest. Any food taken out will expire at its natural rate.
(item lvl 24 : base 2, touch +1, group +2, sun+2, +1 requisite; lvl+4 truly constant)
Staff of Diana: beautiful wooden staff with a crystal embedded at the head. The embedded stone is of extremely valuable. Found next to Diana ex Diedne on the hermetic battlefield, where she was in Twilight. Uninvestigated. Could be a Talisman or a regular enchanted device enchanted by Diana - but it's an active arcane connection to her despite several months of Twilight.
Hauberk: Found on a shield grog belonging to Diana. Uninvestigated but it supposedly has protective enchantments of some kind.
Clay statues: Found on Diana and shield grogs. 2 remains. They resemble a buxom but non-descript woman with a long skirt. They are fragile and could easily be crushed in a hand. If broken in hand, the user teleports to Diana's cave in the middle of a pentagram.
Vials: We found three vials on Diana. One contained vis, two did not. Those two vials have an unknown use. Suspected charged items.
Seashell: Magical. Uninvestigated. Part of Luciu's travel chest. He collected these items from the body of the presiding quaesitoris.
Burnt fragments of a diary: Not clearly magical. Part of Luciu's travel chest. He collected these items from the body of the presiding quaesitoris.
Helmet: Magical. Uninvestigated. Part of Luciu's travel chest. He collected these items from the body of the presiding quaesitoris. Helmet beautifully adorned with a copper rim.
Cloak of the Raven: A cloak of raven feathers that allows its wearer to shapechange into a raven. Seized from a Diedne spy nes Dunfries. We have not tried it yet.
Lamp: Found in a lab under the ruins at Wicker Hill, an enchanted lamp with a 5th magnitude CrIg effect designed to produce light. We do not have the activation words nor the details of the enchantment, but we have the most of the lab notes from the same location and they may yield more details.
Bucket: Found in a lab under the ruins at Wicker Hill, an enchanted bucket with an 8th magnitude PeVi contant or automatic effect. We do not have the details of the enchantment and its purpose, but we have the most of the lab notes from the same location and they may yield more details.

Bag of Holding: Faerie item given to Betula by Edwin's fae doppleganger.

The magi have not chosen to settle. They have found Ungulus with no magi, the fae replica of Castellum Veridian with adjacent magic aura, the abandoned tower of Lux Draconis, and an unexplored magic aura a day's march West of Corbridge, as well as a magic site used by the druids.
They have also found a magic regio occupied by a Roman guard who still live in the times of the Empire.

Wand of Blunting a charge
R: Voice, D: Diam, T: Group
(Based on Blunting the Iron's Bite, MoH p. 50). This wooden wand (made from Linden wood) is activated with a verbal command word and gesture pointing towards the direction of the target. When activated, the effect warps and blunts the blades of a group hopelessly. The affected weapons has their total damage (including Attack Advantage) reduced to half (round up). The weapons return to their undamaged state once the Duration expires. This enchantment was designed without Penetration, as such, these weapons are unable to penetrate Parma Magica or the might of a creature for the duration of the spell.
(Base 1, +2 voice, +1 Diam, +2 affect metal, +2 group)
There are seven such wands, each holding a single charge.
If any magi already knows any of these spells or have included them in their lab texts please let me know.

|Lab Texts||0||1 Lab Text (up to level 20) Ward Against Rain (ReAu10)|
Nyriu, why take a lab text for a spell your character already knows?
I had messed up the dowry table.
Personell is split into grogs and specialists, so it is either 2 grogs or 2 specialists. The silver amount has also been increased.
And as John says, you want to take a text for a spell you want to learn. Or for an item you want to make.
You could invent ward vs rain without the lab text. Pick something at level 20 that you would have trouble inventing without the text (Any Auram except Creo, any Creo except Auram etc.)
Kept for reference. The dowries have been compiled into the resources above.
