Attempting to separate the Tribunal craft efforts from the Table Talk thread, since it seems some players are not interested in the ongoing discussion of details. I'm hoping that specific examples of the approach I'm envisioning can get us generating target numbers and times involved and still talking about the ReCraft stuff.
I particularly like the idea of using the mundane skill break up the year long task into discrete parts. I think Fixer had an idea like this earlier as well.
I am assuming that what makes the mountain peak next door so suitable is that it has space and raw materials, including construction grade stone. Possibly, the primary quarrying site might even end up being the Colosseum.
Step 1: Build a bridge connecting the two mountains.
(Henceforth, I'm using Proj to refer to Hermetic Projects.)
The Foundation Stone, ReTe 29
Base 3, +1 Stone, Personal, +2 Sun, +3 Structure, +4lvls always on
(based on Proj pg41 : The Flying Buttress)
A ReTe foundation stone which, once placed and activated, will not move from its spot in midair, and can support tremendous weight. Depending on the distance between the covenant and the Field, we may need more than one of these. (Flying Buttress is Individual, Size+3. With the Personal/Structure, the Foundation Stone adds supernatural structural stability to the entire structure it is a part of.)
Place these stones at regular intervals to act as foundation stones for the bridge. Have Theraphosa weave support lines between these pillars, forming the underlying support structure of the bridge.
Magic the stone onto the silk. Take extra care that the foundation stones are not visible or accessible once the construction is complete, since their activation requires touch and command. Since the enchantment effects the entire structure, and the particular stone is not visible, it will be hard to disenchant or attack.
So, based on this project concept, and whatever visual is selected for appearance in the Tribunal thread, what are the numbers involved?
