I'm running late in packing for my trip. But I still do hope to see at least one more character up before I leave and to open up the first event for at least a group of three.
I typed the following example submission up this afternoon when my internet connection was down.
Iâ€™ll use the Flambeau character from the core book p.25 for an example of what Iâ€™d like to see for posts of activity. In character discussions between your magus and a functionary of the covenant are particularly encouraged.

Wand of New Yearâ€™s Night:
A wand of hickory with a sharp brass tip that is used to scribe circles in soft earth. The wand is a lesser enchanted device enchanted with the following power:
Circle of New Yearâ€™s Night
Perdo Ignem 10
Range touch Duration momentary Target circle usable 1x per day
A wielder scribes a circle using the wad of new years night to activate its power. When the wand touches the point on the circle where it began everything inside of the circle is strongly chilled, water within the circle freezes and any people within the circle take +5 damage from the cold. The power of the wand is limited and it can not chill a circle of more than ten paces in circumference.
(base 5, +1 touch)
Fuel of Stones and Air
Creo Ignem 15
Range touch, duration ring, target individual
This spell creates a blaze of bright fire burning within the ring it is cast upon. The fire is hot enough to do +5 damage. If th4 ring that is inscribed around the fire is ever broken then the fire is extinguished.
(Base 4 +1 touch, +2 ring)
Touch of penetrating flames
Creo Ignem 10
Range touch, duration momentary target individual
A burst of bright flames flashes from the point touched by the caster. These flames are hot enough to do +1- damage to any object or creature that the caster touches and to the caster.
Base 5 +1 touch,
Brazier of Illuminated Examples
This brass covered hickory brazier is of substantial size and is a lesser enchanted device with the following power:
Will of Example character
Creo Ignem 30
Upon command a large and bright fire bursts from the brazier. This fire is hot enough to do +5 damage. The fire can be dispelled by a second command.
Base 4, +1 touch, +1 concentration, +1 individual,+5 levels item maintains concentration, +10 levels unlimited uses
I had hoped to have time to create dialogs between the example character (he has specializations in insults and I'm not taking advantage of it) and the covenant autocrat to tell the story of these items but , alas I did not have the time.
The Wand of New Yearâ€™s Night is to be used to create large blocks of ice to be sold by the covenant. A story about cutting the ice from nearby lakes in wintertime and a particularly well insulated storehouse used to keep the ice from ablating over the course of the year is concocted to explain the availability of this substance throughout the year.
Fuel of Stones and Air will be cast throughout the covenant in places where a fire would be appreciated. By doing this the character will decrease the number of hours that the coven.folk need to spend gathering wood and leave them free to pursue other activities. This spell will give a lab a warping score so it certainly would not be appropriate for most labs.
Please include an updated character sheet at the end of every event.
