Here is the Covenants book pdf.

The Covenant we are designing is how we wish it to appear after 10 years of game play, with the magi building the Covenant from scratch.

Each player picks:
1 major boon (or 3 minor)
1 major hook (or 3 minor)
50 build points

The points picked represent your magus’s commitment to achieve the results you have picked (generally by dedicating seasons adventuring). When making your picks please provide a summarized plan on how your magus plans to achieve this goal. All picks are subject to troupe approval.

Specific Notes on Vis Sources and Vis Stocks:

  • 1 season Vis Hunt adventure = approximately 5 pawns of Vis stock
  • 1 pawn Vis Source = 1 seasons of adventure GM NOTE: I’m making this one season of adventuring for simplicity sake. Once you find the source, you have to define the source, and how we gets vis from it. You can still only get that sources set number of vis per year, but it can be split up

Proposed Free Choices

Free Choice: Small Tower fortification. I believe Justinia will be using a casting tablet for this GM NOT Not Lucius anymore, but I believe we are sticking with this one

Free Choice: Typical Income. Fishing.

Free Choice: Hunters. Zack will organize the covenfolk into hunters.

Proposed Boons

Minor Boon. Ungoverned. Lignarius. The lands of the covenant are so remote that no noble lays claim to them.

Minor Boon. Loyal Covenfolk. Lignarius is committed to treating the covenfolk well so that within 10 years they will be more loyal than most covenants.

Minor Boon. Healthy Feature. Lignarius is committed to picking a healthy environment in which to found the covenant.

Major Boon. Natural Fortress. Justus
-Major Boon. Quartus will manage to acquire an Extraordinary Book (35pts, Rego: Level 20, Quality 15) – probably a gift from his parens at some point.

-Minor Boon. Vast Aura. Zack has scanned the horizon and determined that the covenant’s aura is vast.

-Minor Boon. Veteran Fighters. Zack will recruit a small force of professional foot soldiers for the covenant.

-Minor Boon. Chase. Zack will negotiate with the local faerie court for an area of the local forest for the capture and breeding of game animals.

Minor Boon. Minority. Justinia will make attempts at rapport with the Nestorian minority amongst the primarily Tengri Cumans.

Minor Boon. Secondary Income. Justinia will try to organize the local farming community into something beneficial to the covenant.

Minor Boon. Vast Aura. Justinia has scanned the horizon and determined that the covenant’s aura is vast.

Minor Boon. Wealth.

Minor Boon. Strong Aura.

Minor Boon. Hidden Ways.

Proposed Hooks

Major Hook. Hedge Tradition. Lignarius is committed to bringing a local tradition of Volkvy priests under the control of the Covenant.

Minor Hook. Haunted . Justus.

Minor Hook. Resident Nuisance . Justus.

Minor Hook. Uncontrolled Portal . Justus.

Minor Hook. Fated Feat. Zack has learned of an incomplete prophecy that is widely known in the area.
-Minor Hook. Faerie Court. Zack has learned that the local faerie court runs the local Chase.

-Minor Hook. Itinerants. Zack has determined that there is a mobile community of visitors to the covenant each year.

Major Hook. Regio. It turns out that there’s a magical Regio in the area that we settle in, although unless the existence of that regio is part of the reason for settling where we do, its existence will probably not be discovered until Quartus does some exploring.

Minor Hook. Indigenes. Justinia realizes that not all local Cumans are very nomadic, and that in fact, some would like to stay the same place as us.

Minor Hook. Pagans. Justinia also realizes that said Cumans are primarily Tengri. She does not like this.

Minor Hook. Fallen Temple. Justinia realizes that there may be a bit of a connection between the reverent pagans, the constant hauntings, the faerie presence and the fact that there’s a rather unpleasant so-called holy site nearby.

Minor Hook. Missing Expedition.

Minor Hook. Warping to a Pattern.

Minor Hook. Pubic Vis Source. The Faerie Vis.
