Covenants of Iberia
There is a total of 10 covenants in Iberia. Though Jafariya was recently destroyed, the establishment of La Sagra in New Castile balances this out. Andorra, with the simple name of the land it was founded in, does not count as one of these ten. The activities of Antonio and the Knights of Seneca have given Andorra more of an Iberian focus in the past century, their immediate interests in and around the Pyrenees keep them attached to Provencal as well.
Below are brief descriptions of the covenants presented in HoH-Iberia (except for Jafariya, which was corrupted by infernal powers and had to be destroyed). Also listed are the other covenants I invented for the Tribunal. Those are not set in stone. They are set in sand actually . If you guys have any ideas or suggestions for better names, by all means let me hear them. I know nothing about th Provencal tribunal. I even lost my list of names. I know that Mistridge, Doisettep, and Val-Negra are located there. Other than that, I have no idea. I need someone to volunteer for Provencal Storyguide
Barcelona â€“ There is no demon in Barcelona. I will not trick you with a demon in Barcelona at a later date. IMHO, I think Barcelona is an awesome covenant if the demon is done away with. Jerbiton is my second favorite House . For those that donâ€™t know, Barcelona consist of all Jerbiton magi, and the tribunal has ruled that they have Hermetic Jurisdiction over the whole city. The members all live in different locations maintaining â€œsecret identitiesâ€. They also forged a treaty with the Kabbalists of the Jewish quarter.
Duresca â€“ Located in the Galatia region of Leon, Duresca lies just off the road to Santiago de Compostella. They consist entirely of Quaesitores and Hoplites of House Gurnicus. The Gurnicus magi originally came to research the discovery of the so-called Duresca scrolls, which they declared a forgery. They eventually took over and the original members were marginalized and moved away. What kind of covenant was Duresca before the Qâ€™s took over? The region is right for House Diedne, but the description of the old covenant before the discovery of the scrolls doeas not have a Diedne feel. And what about those Duresca Scrolls?
Estancia es Karida â€“ Located in Granada, they consist of Hermetic Sahirs, Islamic Jerbiton magi, and others of House Ex-Miscellanea. They have an alliance with the Knights of Seneca, and one of their members is an Islamic Flambeau Sahir and a member of the Knights of Seneca. I want Jarkman to create this character.
Campomartes â€“ Locates near Zamora in Leon, they are a covenant of martial magi, mainly Milites from Houses Flambeau and some members of House Tremere. They have little outside interests, and care mainly about the perfection of their art. They serve as an elite training center, charging a small fee for their tutelage. This is the covenant Karandos of Flambeau was a member of at the time of the Shadow Wars.
Casa de Mericoles â€“ Located in Burgos, they are the central hub for Redcap activity in Iberia. They pose as a secular militant order for older and retired warriors. They do in fact provide charity to veterans, and also recruit from them as well.
Gibralter â€“ This is a covenant of primarily Sufi members of House Criamon and some House Ex-Miscellanea Hedge Wizards. The dwell in a transcendental regio.
Vaetrix â€“ Located in southern Portugal, Vaetrix always consists of three Merinita magi and one apprentice, all female. They are named after the sorceress that founded their covenant, Vae Tricia, who was forced to join the Order along with her sisters during Flambeauâ€™s â€œJoin or Dieâ€ recruitment drive. In her latter years, she was a major supporter of Quendalon.
La Sagra - In the midst of Sierra de Segura & Sierra de Tabilla, La Sagra is the newest covenant in the Tribunal. Not much is known about them, but they just submitted their charter (fuero de Hermeica Covena? Xavi? Little help with th fancy naming? )
