First. Our game is set in Theban Tribunal. My companion was born to the purple and thus has a "super power". As it was rolled out, it turned out to be a Major Divine Virtue. Ugh almost as bad as a Major Infernal.
(note: She is a historical figure and so I had no idea when making her of the whole Ars Magica Porphyrogenitos consequence)
I was going to go with simply giving her a Relic with True Faith of 3. Easily enough. But then I thought it would be fairly interesting to see what others would do in this situation. Situation, you made a character with the Personality traits: Relentless +3, Obsesses with Family Status +3, Cheerful -2, Resentful +2 and now suddenly you have a Divine Major virtue, what do you do?
And the other question, completely off topic.
Say you have a Level 25 Cr/Te spell that creates a cubic foot of iron completely enveloping the head of the target, The Encumbering Iron Helm, if you will.
So it's base 5, +1 for elaborate shape, R: Voice +2, D: Conc +1, T: Ind this being the lowest level spell I could think. Lvl 30 last a sun duration.
So this would more than likely require a finesse roll correct? Even though the entire spell is about placing a big chunk of iron so it is A. fitted so tight about the neck it cannot be removed and B. the actually shape around the head is not important.
I would be curious about how the targeting would work. Spells always hit their target, so if the spell is designed for the singular purpose of being a "head maiden" then would you even need a finesse roll?
