Suggested Final Allocation of Arts, Tractatus and New Summae
(So this is the part to read, weigh, and comment on!)
o L20 Q11 (+T) Rego o L18 Q10 Creo o L15 Q15, L 5 Q18 (+T) Intellego (x2: Glendower)(slightly faster study up to Level 5) o L13 Q19 Muto o L10 Q16 Perdo
Tho' swapping Intell and Creo could work as well.
o L18 Q12 (+T) Ignem o L16 Q 9, L 8 Q17 (+T) Vim (x2: Glendower) (significantly faster study up to Level 8) o L15 Q 8 (+T) Terrem (weakest quality, slower study) o L14 Q11 (+T) Corpus o L12 Q18 Herbem o L12 Q10, L10 Q15 Aquam (x2 due to plain random luck) (faster study up to Level 10) o L11 Q17 Aurum o L10 Q11 Mentem o L 8 Q21 Imagonem (High Qual = fast study!) o L 5 Q12 Animal (Low Level, replacement for lost text) (+T) denotes additonal Tractatus in this Art
If the Healer (and/or Glendower and/or the Jerbiton) also had Mentem, we could bump Mentem to around Herbem, and let everything else slide down (except Aquam- that's locked by use from last season.) That would hammer any Aurum that the Jerbiton Mariner had, and make the lower half look something like this:
o L12 Q18 Mentem o L12 Q10, L10 Q15 Aquam (x2 due to plain random luck) (faster study up to Level 10) o L11 Q17 Herbem o L10 Q11 Aurum o L 8 Q21 Imagonem (High Qual = fast study!) o L 5 Q12 Animal (Low Level, replacement for lost text)
The dozen Tract' we had already allocated with points are (currently) divided between Arts and Abilities. Tractati (Arts and/or Abilities, mixed) (To write, Qual = 6+Comm, so ~6-7 are going to be common.) o Q11 ART - Vim o Q9 - Magic Theory o Q8 ART - Intellego o Q8 - Great Weapon, "The Art of the PoleArm", Ch. 1 only, w/ illustrations. Trans. from the Italian o Q7 - Teaching (in Norman French) - La Methode Socratique o Q7 ART - Rego o Q7 - Lore (Infernal? Dominion?) o Q6 ART - Corpus o Q6 - Premonitions "The Interpretation of Dreams" o Q6 ART - Ignem o Q5 - Area Lore: Loch Leaghan Tribunal o Q5 ART - Terrem o Q3 - Sense Holy/Unholy (orig Q6, incomprehensible cuts total in half) +145 new pts to add to Summae and Tractatus: New Summae: (See also Summae List, Alphabetical by Ability in post above) Pts Lvl/Qual 18 - L3 Q5 Domain Lore 27 - L3 Q8 Medicine (in Greek) 20 - L2 Q6 Language- Anglish as She is Spoked 27 - L3 Q8 Ettiquette 26 - L2 Q8 Area Lore- Stonehenge Tribunal (Norman French) Un Narratif d'Angleterre = 118 pts +27 pts of 145 remaining: New Tractatus: Q9 - Music Q7 - Code of Hermes (supplements existing Summa) Q6 - Faerie Lore (supplements existing Summa) ...and a +1 Increase in the Levels of 5 existing Summa: o Philosophia L5 -> L6 o Magic Theory L5 -> L6 o Parma L3 -> L4 o Penetration L3 -> L4 o Artes Lib's L3 -> L4 Phew! OK- How's that? Any suggestions, speak up, or all in favor say "Hell yes!" (And, on top of that, K has muttered about a stash of several additional Tractatus on Magic Theory, and tossed in a comment somewhere about yet one more minor Summa on Intellego. All to the good to create a "big" library, if not one artificially maximized.) (/Copy and Paste) Muttered, hell... Just before you disappeared, Mathius' player mentioned that the remaining 3 points of boons be taken as 'Hidden Resources', for a total of 750 points, split between the players. I've tried to get some answers on what people wanted, and was going to choose from the big list what people found (A copy of the Republic? In Greek? On Scrolls???) as they went around and put things in order. Right now, Labs are being built. The 2 collections are from my list of things; They're older, less sought after texts. There are texts to be found and deciphered, hidden caverns to plumb the depths of, secrets to be uncovered, an arachnid infestation, and servants of the infernal and divine walking about... And then we'll start on the local folklore, like "The Tragedy of Dierdre" (An actual Irish tale, not a story about Dierdre ex Flambeau). Or perhaps, the Cattle raid of Cooley... Moo. Mooooo! MOO! moo? Moo! Steve (Who has played too much Diablo II...)
