Finders Keepers

Business as usual, helping the Covenant prosper and advancing your knowledge for personal gain.

Slaves are Revolting
No, really. Run!

Subtili Ferro and Bartholomew started a slave revolt.

They came home with some of them.

The Dark Forest
And other Adventures

While Subtili Ferro and Bartholomew travelled to the Barbary Coast, Squiggles was knee-deep in Wine-Making in Provence.

Meanwhile, back at the Lighthouse, the Grogs heard stories of a black beast in the woods that was terrorizing local farmfolk. Though their own farmers were unaffected, Werner went to go investigate and possibly sow goodwill with the locals. upon studying the situation, they found an expected massive boar rampaging during the full moon.

Following it into the woods, Werner, Savio and Adophe began to explore the woods, and are attacked suddenly, and viciously by strange, demonic creatures in the dark. Werner was brutally mauled by sharp little claws, while Adolphe’s beloved sword did good work. They were rescued by a massive boar, the very one they were stalking. After the demonic creatures were dead, the ‘heroes’ tracked the boar til morning and discovered its identity as Father Dominico.

At the end of the year, Akakios the trader brought Werner 2 pawns of Perdo Ignem vis for trade.

The Rod of Ruin
(Mostly Reading)

Over the next year, the magi hit the books again. Bartholomew and Kadija agreed to put off their pirate adventures in exchange for more time in the library. Werner read up on Ignem opened up and began enchanting the Rod of Ruin-a simple item that should be able to take down a small army. Squiggles and Kadija also finally heard back from their mentors and presented the books for trade to the senior members of Somnium Oceani. Though hesitant to give away any knowledge, Testudinous and Werner agreed to a trade in order to get the coven’s hands on some desperately needed knowledge.

Quiet in the Library Please

With most of the new mages settled in, Somnium Oceani has begun to find some semblance of a normal routine. Most of the mages have returned to studying, with Kadija reading through Aperi Oculos Tuos, Werner working on a powerful defense spell that would rain earth upon intruders, Squiggles reading through Et Omnem Silvam, and Bartholomew studying up on Rego magic. Kadija was delighted to discover that her lab was unusually organized (though not surprised, she is perfect after all), while Squiggles can’t quick seem to figure out what’s wrong but there seems to be some kind of hidden flaw in his own laboratory.

Testudinous lead the meeting to discuss the covenant member’s services for the year, with Werner working on the aforementioned defense spell and Squiggles willing to work on Vis extraction. Hungering for a bit of adventure, Bartholomew and Kadija volunteered to take up finding new fishermen to man the boats in the nearby village.

Quiet Times
Not much Happens, and everyone is happy about this

With Testudinous back, life at the coven could find some semblance of normality- with two full voting members, Bartholomew had a unanimous vote of acceptance into the covenant as it’s newest junior member.

For the next three seasons, the young Magi hit the books. Werner was happily holed up in his lab, hammering away at god knows what. Squiggles got some reading in and enjoyed the wonders of Testudinous’ teachings with the newest junior covenant member, Bartholomew. Ferro began her studies into Herbem and Animal in hopes of prolonging Jabar’s life and defeating her parents in a Certemen. All seemed quiet, though, with that many Magi around, that’s hardly likely to last.

A Journey Abroad
The mad wizard returneth

With the year winding to a close, Sorra decided it was time to get the young wizards’ help in recruiting more staff for the covenant. at their new Stewards suggestion. Though several ideas were tossed around, it was eventually decided that Ferro and Squiggles would venture to nearby Piza in order to find the necessary individuals. Without too much effort, the pair found a journeyman stonemason, a few farmers, and an apprentice ink maker (who might end up being more trouble than he’s worth).

The new year started off with a bang! Testudinis’ return from Twilight heralded the new year, and the older Magi seemed quite chipper despite barely surviving a near hundred foot drop into the ocean. During the madness, Ferro managed to gain a Twilight scar and Bartholomew impressed Testudinis with his excellent life-guarding abilities. As things currently stand, the Council of Somnium Oceani is likely to confirm Werner as a full member very soon. With Testudinis back and Werner soon to be a council member, will Sorra’s tyranny finally end? The old Scottish wizard can only pray that the responsibility will be lifted from his shoulders.

Of Butlers and Boars
(Well, of Stewards and Boars really)

We pick up were we left off last time with a savage boar attacking the cattle of the coven! Luckily for the grogs of the coven, Squiggles was up and about. Working with the grogs (mostly harnessing the power of Nunzio’s size and strength) Squiggles was able to bring the boar down. Acting quickly, the grogs of the coven hog-tied the beast and threw it in a cellar. Sabato was left to guard the door and repair his bow- unfortunately for Squiggles, Sabato’s lack of concentration cost the magi a confrontation with the were-beast. The sly archer was nearly asleep when Squiggles came to check in the morning and the transformed beast had slipped away with the dawn, nary a set of eyes catching sight of the creature.

Meanwhile, Ferro and Oriel took to the task of finding the coven a steward. Rather than go the easier route and damn the consequences, Ferro elected to go the longer but more stable route. Convincing a local lord that the reason for his son’s philandering ways were due to a magical disturbance, Ferro invited herself and Oriel to stay for a week and fix the ‘problem’. Ferro quickly wove a series of nasty little Mentem spells to terrify the younger lord into obedience to his father, while Oriel turned the eyes of the local ladies from the young lord to himself. Through hard work and dedication (well, really through cut throat manipulation) Ferro was able to curry the favor of a local noble house and get enough inside information to buy the steward off a failed lord. With one seasons work of service done, Ferro returned to the coven with a most satisfied Oriel in tow.

The Giant

The coven is under attack! Or so they thought. Wandering along the Corsican country side was the giant Magi, Bartholomew. An honest and upfront giant, he immediately informed the coven members of his affliction of lycanthropy. The coven (Sorra), made wary by his size and curse, welcomed him as a guest but let was not ready to invite him on as a probationary member.

Pressured in to offering his help, Orielle spoke to Savio in his bull form and found that he had been forced in to his new shape by a fairy prince!

Meanwhile, Squiggles had been tasked with finding a spiritual leader for the coven. Always the go getter, Squiggles quickly found a priest in town who was looking for lodgings. Dominoco San Salvador joined Squiggles at the coven house despite his unease with magi as a whole.

When the light of the full moon fell upon the coven, Bartholomew made his graceful leap off the cliffside and into the ocean. And then it would seem the fairies struck again! A massive boar attacked the cows and Squiggles was the only Magi awake to help fend it off. WIth the help of Ben Wadi, Squiggles struck the boar a laming blow with a quickly fired spell. Strangely enough, the spell didn’t work as well as would be expected. Squiggles then attempted to change the school he was casting it with, from Animal to Corpus- lo and behold, a were-boar was attacking the coven!

A New Year
How to Party without...

A new year dawns. Age toils on. Oh, and all the little nobles throw their parties.
Kadija travelled to the party of a local noble, Giuseppe Parodi, where she made inroads into peaceful treaties and manipulations with the local nobles. While there, she met Oriel, and they hit it off well. In particular, Oriel (a fae-born young man) made very good relations with Kadija’s handmaid, Delphina.
