OOC Discussions and Table Talk

I am interested but feel a bit hands-full at the moment. I'd have to check with my baby sleep situation etc. when the time comes.

I assume my character is nearly fished.
In a few weeks I can start to build a second for the price of knowledge.

I´m interested but mid of February I will work in Australia for 8 weeks. I think I will have less time than.
I will still be able to spend time on a regularly basis in the Price of Freedom, but not so sure about a second saga.

In other words: I like to, but I´m not sure if I have enough time. :confused:

Anyway coming May I´m back home and should be able to handle more than 1 saga

Like I said, this isn't a one-time offer. The context of the sister saga will make it relatively easy to introduce new magi at any time (and to have magi leave as well).

It also isn't an immediate thing. Since the saga will be more political in nature, I will need some time to spin it up.

Just figured I'd share the thought, offer this troupe a chance to think about it before I announced it at large, and sollicitate comments about the idea. :smiley:

Although the second saga will be in the same universe, interaction between the two will be limited. Some NPCs will be shared, but that should be it.

Thanks for the offer Arthur. For me, I have two concerns.
First and foremost, I have to see how much time this and the other game I have joined actually take.
Second, I have to think about how well I can contriubte to a politcally oriented story sequence. It certainly sounds interesting.

I would be interested and I really like the idea of a political orientation of the second saga, but at the moment I think I have my hands full with the two games I'm currently in.
I will keep my eyes open here on the forum and when you decide to launch it, I will evaluate how much time I have for another game.

The sister saga has been announced. :smiley:

The spell for identifying Vis that seems to make the most sense is a Wizards Eye for Vis. From other sources, that Would appear to be base 1, personal, +4 for vision.
I am inclined towards diameter duration, since recasting when not under pressure is a simple die. That would give a net 10. As I have a lab total of 31 (before Aura), I could use the other available points to actually learn Scale of the Magic Weight (inVi 5).

There are several variations on that basic idea using T:Vision. D:Diam only lasts 2 minutes, so you would end up casting it many many times if you are hunting for vis sources. D:Conc is of the same level and can last up to 15 minutes multiplied by your score in Concentration (only drawback is that you need to concentrate on it so other actions are more difficult). D:Sun would completely solve the duration problem, although it would add a magnitude (still within your capabilities to invent in a single season) and stay active even after you no longer have a use for it (a potential source of Warping of you use it too often).

Another variation (which one of the departed magus used) is to go with T:Hearing. The range of hearing is not as great as T:Vision, but in some instances to can help you find vis that you would otherwise miss. For example, something hidden by a piece of fabric, under a bush, or simply covered by sand. It is also easier to invent, with one less magnitude required.

The aura around the oak is 3.

I think that D: Sun T: Hearing will work out best.

Joel feel free to join in the Heart of stone story with any of your characters. Tristan perhaps?
You may also play Yulia, just remember that she is either 8-9 months pregnant or just have given birth, I don't remember when she got "knocked up".

More like 4-5 months pregnant. She announced she was pregnant in the winter (third bullet point of the second part).

Okay. Happy to handle those two. I mixed the two characters in this post. I will try to keep them separate in general, to keep it cleaner.
(And then the board complains that I "cannot make another post so soon after your last.")

Ah ok. Sorry, I thought it was earlier.

Commenting here because that is totally OOC

Hmmm, fun could result in that. Herman's rather dismissive comment -- delegating presentation of the plans to Tristan -- combined with the Gift of the magi and Prochorus Difficult Underlings flaw... Well, I could very well see Lothar building a house that is not quite what the magi asked for. Say, with too many fireplaces, or with rooms proportioned a bit differently than what was expected for use as labs. You see what I mean? I'd encourage Bearlord to be creative in the way things can be just slightly off. :laughing:

After all, it happens fairly often that communication breaks down between the customers, the architect and the builders even nowadays. So I can just imagine such a situation happening here, since Lothar is not familiar with the weird requirements of magi. At least for the first large house. This would provide a reason for Lothar to come back -- to fix some of those things when the magi realize what happened, and benefit from him having learned better for the second large house.

I submit that to the troupe. I'm not going to force something like that on any of you, but I felt this was an opportunity. After all, things are not supposed to go smoothly for this covenant. :mrgreen:

Although I agree with everything you say, I'm not so sure it would be fun to return to the building story from a playing point of view - it would be a story with fairly similar themes, I suppose, but just with added in-character experience of the situation.

So far Lothar is not particularly impressed by his new contractors and I'm not sure we have decided on payment for the construction yet. Yulia and he seem to have agreed on some price according to the autumn 1210 thread and it was more expensive than expected (expected price was 20 pounds per large house). He may want some further compensation for the extraordinary circumstances (magi and ghosts primarily).

I'm not playing Lothar as part of the covenant (yet at least) so his actions may actually be counterproductive to the overall welfare of the covenant. We'll see how it turns out. :smiley:

Arthur will you start a story for Japik this season? He will swim alot, looking for dolphins in the waters and try to communicate with them, then getting closer to the pillars as well.

I intend to.

No hurry. I was just checking.

I thought I had posted somewhere in this forum the spell Herman was going to work out for making Vis visible or Audible. I need to make a final decision on exactly what he has been working on for the season, preferably before Arthur clarifies when in the season we are going to visit the pillars. Or did I post an explicit plan and I just can't find it now? (If I did, then I stick with whatever I said.)
