Plans/advice for November (Josephine of Merinita)

Mm. That's a good thought and would work for things that don't require the same level of targeting.
But if the candle re-casts at sundown, the item has no target if the target is away at a gala. Still, I like the way this is looking.

Arguably, yes, you would need to increase the range to voice, sight or Arc depending on how far you want the target to be if it recasts, and plausibly an environmental trigger conditional to the candle being lit to avoid a flickering effect. On the other hand, since it's magical, I don't see any problem with a candle lesser enchanted device that doesn't really burn down while it's lit.

I love the hooks on how to integrate her as an NPC!


For tomorrow, I've got something a bit different:
I wrote up a faerie rival who's been stalking after Josephine because of her Curse of Venus.


Just to say, I love the last 2 spells.
The Hedgehog's Armor for its versatility and creativity
Conjury of Glorious Attire or "Emergency Trousers" :rofl:

Because I'm unreasonably proud of it, I'm posting it here:

I posted two spells today instead of one.
I added a low level extra bonus spell today.

That thread is really a delight.
To Be Dragged Away By The Collar little text was wonderful

Josie becoming the other woman is a great and very fitting idea, although I fear she may lose in trouble potential for Josephine, sadly

I'm glad you like it - I have plans. But really, Josephine's flaw is Curse of Venus, not Plagued by Faerie, so I don't expect a low-might faerie to really plague the Merinita for tribunal after tribunal. I have plans.


Plans to develop a spell to destroy Faerie Might? She's quite patient at having that pest arround her.

If you destroy the faerie might you can't get its vis!

You also don't get harassed for two tribunal periods :laughing:

Ah ah ah ah! Very nice twist, I didn't expect it. Discovering this as a player would be quite a shock :smiley:

This reminds me very much on the wonderful comic "Once and Future", by Kieron Gillen. Things like this happen several times during that story

I just realized that this is the last day of Josephine.
This makes me sad, as this was really the thread I was looking forward to each time I connected to the boards.

Thank you very, very much. It was a wonderful thread, useful, interesting, funny, and delightful.


You do not have to stop you can keep on making updates throughout advent.

I like how quickly you are to give me more work...


It's not more work, it's more fun! It's just a question of attitude :slight_smile:

Edit: I'd not paid too much attention to the authorship of the post and thought that you were the one who'd be missing updating her

I made another plot-and-story post for Josephine, and I plan to make more additions now and again when I decide how to build her forwards.

I've also finally published her info on my site for record-keeping.


Now that I'm past that part of the 'plot'... Obviously I didn't want to destroy Josie because I had plans to turn her into a faerie familiar. Josephine, for her part, didn't want to kill Josie for sentimental value, because Josie represents her youthful indiscretion and wildness. Also, a lot of the trouble that Josie caused was not actually problems for Josephine, but instead trouble in her wake.


Yes. I loved that part, I really didn't expect it, and it was nice to see the situation be resolved in a non-confrontational way. We need more of this, IMO.

Didn't realize the part about josie having sentimental value to Josephine, this is a very nice and humanizing touch.

You really had plans and thought it all, didn't you? :smiley:

Thanks for the suggestion - I need to add the Grand Grimoire of Hermetic Spells to my toolbox.. .
