Last week in the coven Sorra made a concerning announcement; the coven’s yearly supply of ignim and perdo Vis needed to be gathered from it’s source- two massive dragons hidden in an Regio. While this was typically done by leaving two oxen in the dragons den for them to feast on and gathering fallen scales, the process had been interrupted by the men and oxen going missing. Thus, Squiggles, Ferro, and Werner were sent to investigate.
Upon arriving at the scene, the three magi and assorted grogs came across a sleeping man lying in a field, accompanied by two small bulls. While Squiggles’ first instinct was to attempt to give medical aid to the fallen, Ferro was more suspicious. After a quick bit of investigative magic done by Werner, it was soon established that the ‘man’ was in fact a rock transformed by fairy magic. After a bit of push from her fellow magi, Ferro was willing to lower herself to the task of speaking mind to mind with one of the bulls, thus discovering that the hunter Savio had been transfigured.
Deciding that this level of buffoonery was beyond their comprehension. the magi returned to the covenant with the bulls and transformed rock in tow, and turned the problem over to Sorra. The old wizard quickly discerned that fairy magic had transformed the rock, placed Savio in the body of a bull and permanently transformed Mario as well.
With a bit of magic from Werner, the magi soon had enough gold for new cattle and were able to return to the dragons and complete their Vis gathering and dragon feeding task.
With their Vis gathering complete, Squiggles, Ferro, and Werner were able to return to their studies. Ferro was also given the joyous task of gathering up the Coven’s supply of Aquam Vis, which she managed successfully with Squiggles’ help. In true opportunistic fashion, Ferro used this as a chance to practice her Inception spell and made the acquaintance of a herald for a local nobleman. The herald promptly invited her to come visit the lord, which Ferro managed to politely postpone to a later date, when she had completed more of her studies in the Italian language.
With Ferro unleashed upon the Corsican social scene, there are sure to be many future opportunities (or problems) for the covenant to face. Whether or not the island of Corsica will soon see a new, more magic resistant, breed of cow, is entirely up to how ethical Ferro and Squiggles intend to be (and perhaps on whether Werner can appeal to their humanity).
