Forgotten Legacy

1221.2 The Meeting of the First Tribunal of the Rhein
The Founding of Treverorum and other schemes.

In early summer of 1221, the first visitors begin arriving at Durenmar for the upcoming Tribunal. The first arrivals get quarters in the Durenmar Guesthouse. The rest camp in the Tribunal Fields.

Prelude

Praenuntius enjoyed the summer sun, sipping some chilled wine he watched the newcomers together with Egbert. “Any idea who that is?” he asked Egbert. “I believe it is Signum Irruptus, a seeker from house Criamon, I almost didn’t recognize hime without his arm.” Signum Irruptus headed for the great library, oblivious to his observers. Praenuntius had been able to stay in his current room at the guesthouse and had even reserved another room for some other member of Treverorum. Both rooms had required Certamén to keep, through sheer luck he had defeated two challengers and this had so far discouraged others. He had no doubt however, that soon more mature challengers would arive demanding the spare room.

A fight for the right to a room

Morrkul Tiranul, Lucian Procellus and Damianus Philocrates arrived at Durenmar three days before the opening of the Tribunal meeting. It was a sunny day, typical of this years excellent summer. They had travelled hastily from Prague, having been unexpectently delayed a month after stumbling upon a gateway to the magic realm itself.
Citus landed before them as soon as they had passed the Mill. “We are much concerned with your lack of effort.” Citus told the young magi. “Praenuntius requires your prescence in the guest house post haste! Don’t tally further”. Lucian´s response was quick, “I don’t take orders from poultry!”, with those words he left the others, heading in the opposite direction. Damianus shrugged, “Well I’m curious, let’s go”. He headed towards the guest house and Morrkul followed in short order. The two young magi arrived at The Durenmar Guesthouse to witness a heated debate between Praenuntius and two other magi. “You can´t possibly claim two rooms for yourself you arrogant twat!” exclaimed a young skinny looking fellow in fine black clothing. “But I’m not, one of the rooms is his.” responded Praenuntius and pointed towards Morrkul whom had just entered the room.

Morrkul was challanged to Certamen by Carolus Furax, a young Tytalus peregrinator. Carolus defeated Morrkul but was in turn defeated by Istvan. Istvan offered to share his new double room with Morrkul, stating that house Tremere looks after it’s own.
Praenuntius told Damianus that he had had an extra bed installed in his quarters if he needed a place to sleep. Damianus accepted and moved his stuff inside.
Having found lodgings for the duration of the Tribunal the three young magi headed out to explore the amazing hermetic fair that had sprung up on the usually empty Tribunal Fields of Durenmar.

Exploring the Tribunal fair and fields. The first three days.

While many magi stay in large tents as well as the Guesthouses, a few stick out. The young magi noticed the temporary magically constructed manor house of Igor Rastvan, the camping grounds of Crintera, chapter house of Fengheld and the enchanted tree of Irencillia.

Also a large feasting area with constant servings of deliciuos foods and drink is set up close to the guesthouse. This area is the social centre of the gathering and has the feel of a bavarian beerfest. There is also a large area with tents and stalls where magi can trade in arcane items.

The young magi spent some time gathering hearsay and rumours. They discovered that Waddenzee and Occulus Septentrionalis are close to war as the former has plundered resources of the latter including a huge enchanted ship built by Marcus Navicularius. All under the guise of mundane piracy. The young magi decided that instead of choosing sides they would try to reconcile the two covenants and settle a peace treaty. Damianus Philocrates met with Marcus at the Forge of Verditius and heard his side of the story. Meanwhile Morrkul met with both Hygwald Veritas and Henri de Tours. Morrkul discovered that a possible solution could be to convince Oculus septentrionalis to pay Waddenze for escort services in return Waddenzee would return some stolen property. Morrkul unsuccesfully attempted to convince the Tribunal Senior Quesitor Archmage Caecilius to oversee the negotiations, but was dismissed outright. Instead he turned his attention to Tabanus a young Guernicus Quesitor.
Together the two called for a settlement meating between Henri de Tours and Hygwald Veritas. After several succesful Intrigue, Order of Hermes Lore, Guile and Code of Hermes skill checks Morrkul managed to get both covenants to agree on a peace treaty. The rumour of this deed quickly spread earning Morrkul a reputaion as a skilled negotiator.

The young magi also met with Pantos their sponsor from Sapientia Aetatum. He introduced them to his Mater Archmage Ambrosius. Ambrosius turned out to be a rather pleasent old fellow with a keen interest in magical regios and auras. The young magi decided to tell him about their journey to the magic realm. Ambrosius was very surpised and offered to help with further knowledge and aid if the young magi decide to return more prepared. Ambrosius also asked about any regios or auras in cities that the young Magi might have discovered and offered to help should they want to know more about Conciatta of Bonisagus and the The Murial of Conciatta.

The market

Meanwhile Damianus explored the market place where several characters had set up shop.

  • Tim the Enchanter has a stall where he sells all manor of explosive devices, traps, fireball wands, bombs, exploding cuttlery, fireball wands, exploding statues, fireball wands and so forth.
  • Concientia sells a huge assortment of different items and special lab texts. She also has a low level vim summae and creo summae for sale as well as some tractati.
  • Ludmilla from Roznov has a stall where she sells all sorts of books. The young magi bought Stones of the World for a few pawns of vis.
  • Gudrun Tigurina the keeper of the forge of Verditius has a stall. Items of all sorts can be bougth here.
  • Ricardus Caespuus sells plants, books on Herbam and lab texts.
  • Pantos sells lab texts and low level summae as well as trading Muto vis.
  • Oskar the Sword sells enchanted weapons and armour.
  • Hachim al’Khalejj is selling his old enchanted armillary sphere.
  • Peter von Würzburg has a stall selling enchanted wines.
  • Also there are stalls representing Fengheld, Irencillia and Triamore as well as Durenmar. These all sell and buy books, both arcane and mundane.
Socializing and a gathering of morbid fellows

The young magi encountered many fellow magi and somehow wound up dining with Petra, Beachleaf, Balastor and Larinda. All three were curious wilderness enthusiasts with a slight civilazation challenge. The most extreme being Balastor who wore no clothing and communicated mainly with grunts. The young magi talkedextensively with Larinda about possible sponsorship. She explained that only Schadrit could sponsor them and that she would arrive soon.

After some discreet questioning, Morrkul was invited to a gathering of necromancers held at night in the forest. Here he met with Inger, Clemens, Lucas von Beck, Mortimus, Garrinchuess and Theoderich of Augsburg. The meeting lasted for an hour and was surprisingly lighthearted and humouros. In the end they all agreed to meet in spring at Treverorum were Morrkul Tiranul would show them an interesting specimen he had found in the old ruins beneath Prague. At the meeting Morrkul also discovered that Treverorum could quite possibly have been the sanctum of Bellephon of Prague. He also noticed that several of the others discreetly inquired about any findings of necromantic interest, especially if any work of Julia or Selena Tibicena had been found.

The final sponsorships

The young magi also secured the sponsorship of Triamore as both Daria La Gris and Tim the Enchanter will sponsor in return for support in a vis stealing case that will be brought before tribunal.
Finally Morrkull managed to meet with Schadrit who questioned the young Tremere extensively. After succesful faerie lore and etiquette checks Schadrit agreed to sponsor Treverorum under the condition that no magi from Treverorum would vote in support of Durenmar during the Tribunal.
The young magi also met with Urgen and updated him on the stolen vis. He will uphold his sponsorship and confirmed that the newly discovered vis source had belonged to Arliandus.

Meeting of Tremeres

Exarch Stentorius called for a meeting of all members of house Tremere. Here several house plots and plans were discussed. The recon of Pfalz Island was brought up as well as the lab work of Rastvan Castellum. Morrkul Tiranul was once again introduced to Clemens, Stentorius right-hand man and several other Tremere Magi. Morrkul learned several things at the meeting. Stentorius rules with an iron hand and tolerates little deviance from his ultra conservative views on how the Tribunal should be run. Severicus may have established himself in the Rhein Tribunal under guidance from senior Tremere magi in Transylvania who are politically in disagreament with Stentorius. Morrkul also learned that Daria La Gris is disliked by both Stentorius and Severicus for having joined a gild other than the Oak Gild. Daria has voiced her opinion to Morrkul that the Tremere leadership in the Rhein is visionless, without a clear focus and sliding into winter. She also seemed completely indifferent to her alienation from the House leadership in the Rhein, her only open support coming from her filius Eberhard Lehmann.

An auction

An auction was held by Caprea on an enchanted sword recovered from the ruins of Lethra covenant. Among the bidders were Oskar the Sword, Eberhard Lehmann, Severicus, Boris of Novgorod, Tim the Enchanter and Elo. The auction winner was Oskar whith a final bid of 21 pawns of vis.
The young magi decided not to interfere or attempt to scare away bidding competitors with false rumours of a cursed sword.

The Tribunal

The tribunal meeting itself lasted 3 days.
On the first day the matter of new covenants was discussed, much to everyones surprise the Ash Gild announced the formation of a covenant led by Darius ex Flambeau located in a magic regio. Afterlengthy discussions it was agreed to acknowledge the three new covenants as the first point but give the traditional gifts an the final day.
Dorana suggested that the Praeco should be the oldest magus in the tribunal and not the leader of Durenamr, as is custom in all other tribunals. It was agread to select a commitee to determine who the oldest magus is and present their findings on the next tribunal meeting.
As the last point on the first day Oclus Septentrionalis was accused by the Ash Gild of ailing their duty to comabt the Order of Odin. They were found innocent as a majority egreed that their very presence in the region was a threat to the Order of Odin.

On the second day Crintera asked for help against the christian invasion of Rügen. The tribunal descided to wait and send some vis to replace loses due to christian raids of pagan temples.
Also a vis dispute between Triamore and Carolus Furax was settled. Later Furax sold knowledge about the vis source to Lucian Procellus who sold it to Triamore.

On the last day Tolides was accused of using magic to mine silver in Kutna Hora south east of Prague. He was narrowly aquitted with the support of Treverorum.
Dankmar was accused of violating the code by murdering priests. But since no evidence of direct involvement or any survivors were proved they were found innocent but warned to be more subtle in the future.
Lastly Persephone from Irenciliia was accused of endangering the Order by attracting
the attention of the church by converting many peasents to paganism. She was with the help of the young magi found innocent but warned to keep a low profile and forbidden from actively converting any more peasents for the next 7 years.

At the end of the meeting the gifts were presented to the three new covenants by the standing coenants of the Rhine Tribunal. And a large party was held.

1221.2 Summer

Roleplay
The summer of 1221 A.D. was especially warm in Bohemia. Combined with good rains this resulted in an excellent harvest prognosis and generally lifted spirits among the peasents.
Der er Tribunal om sommeren som bliver dækket af en seperat journal entry. I skal notere hvad i vil om sommeren, Tribunal deltagelse skal noteres og hvis i vil noget som kræver en session så noter det inden deadline.

Urgen’s Vis
Archmage Urgen had told Damianus Philocrates that Crintera would only sponsor Treverorum if the young magi identified the person who had stolen vis from a cave on Mount Blanik som 50 miles south of Prague. Now it was about time the young magi kept their part of the bargain.
Borbak looked at the gathering expedition, himself he had no doubts about, but he knew that none of the three magi possesed the athletics required for the long journey up the mountain. Borbak knew that Morrkul Tiranul was not terribly used to travelling, and despite his obviously pathetic build Damianus Philocrates seemed to be quite enduring, apparently the long hours he had spent at the forges during his apprenticeship had left their mark. Borbak also knew, that while Lucian Procellus’ athletic capabilities left much to desire, the magus would never admit anything but supreme confidence in his own capabilities. Borbak hoped he wouldn’t have to carry any of them.

Morrkul Tiranul couldn’t shake the feeling of being watched, gathering his belongings and heading for the courtyard, he got the distinct feeling he was forgetting something.
His vision came suddenly and without warning, Borbak hurried to his master’s side. He caught Morrkul before he landed on the stone steps, guarding his master Borbak waited patiently.
- A small robed person emerged suddenly in the darkness of the cave. It was as if he suddenly popped into existence, stepping through a teer in reality. He scans his surroundings, a small irregular cave, two exits. In the centre a small plinth with a bowl on top, five similar plinths stood in a circle around the centre. He finds a lantern, seemingly burning without fire, paintings on the walls, primitive, ancient, pre-dating any source of writing. He removes his hood, revealing a series of tatoos covering his face. He visits each of the six bowels in turn and takes something. Examining the objects he smiles and leaves through one of the exits. –
Morrkul awoke, “Help me up Borbak”.

The party traveleld for two days to a large village at the foot of Mount Blanik. Here they spoke with the locals and convinced Father Luciano and Sir Hugo that they were pilgrims on their wat to the holy cave of Saint Dagobert I. Impressed with the visitors Sir Hugo invited the party to dine with him for the evening. After a hearty meal the party slept in the breweries hayloft.
Well-rested the party set off for the monestary on the slopes of the “mountain”. Hiking for hours in the baking summer heat had it’s toll on some but eventually they all arrived safely at the monestary of Saint Dagobert. Here Lucian cleverly avoided mass while the others prayed to the almighty God and recieved The Lords blessing. Guided by a sheperds boy the party arrived at the hole cave of Saints Dagobert I and Wenceslas. After the guide left, the party investigated the small cave. Here they found a wooden cross and a strong divine aura. Lucian felt very uneasy and began sensing the wrath of God, he left hurriedly before the visions of his impending Hell began. Meanwhile Morrkul knelt and prayed to God and the Saints, Feeling the love of God wash over him he left the caved refreshed and 1 confidence point richer.

The party decided to continue up the mountain. Here they were attacked by a giant black bear that chased them away. Lucian decided to attempt combating the bear but fled when he discovered thta he was completely unable to penetrate the beasts formidable magic resistance.
After an hours search the party found a way around the beast and arrived at the top of the mountain. Here they spent some time wondering what to do. Soon they were approached by Petra, a young beautiful Maga of House Björnär. She guided them through a Regio boundary and into a higher level. Here Mount Blanik was suddenly much taller and grander. Hiking further up the mountain the party were guided to a series of small caves, here the entered a deeper regio level and saw the bear cave were the Vis was stolen from. Exploring the area they found a strange cave matching the description Morrkul had given from his vision. They also found a ruined pagan site of worship to Stribog, god of wind and mountain tops. After much thought the bargained with Petra for Muto and Perdo vis. They placed one of each type of technique vis in the five pedestals and opened the way to a level 10 regio.
In this regio the pagan shrine was in fully functioning condition, as if never abandoned. After spending som time here Lucian felt he could see ghosts of pagan worshippers and unknowingly guided the party into the magic realm.
Finding themselves in a auram vestige the part ywas much confounded. The eventually discovered that they could step deeper into the magic realm and entered a boundary with strong connections to auram. The found themselves on a plateau surrounded by clouds and winds. In the distance they could see many other plateaus and mountain tops. They harvested 2 pawns of Auram vis and after much debate Morrkuls discipline won through and he convinced Damianus that exploration of the magic realm was wisest to do after more preparation.
Lucian discovered that finding the way back to the mundane realm was not as easy as entering the magic realm. He took the party into the twillight realm following an arcane connection back to the vestige. On the way the adventurous young magi began pondering the the twillight realm and attempted to understand the myriad of winds, clouds and gases they floated through. As a result all three magi had twillight episodes wich they fortunately managed to comprehend before being driven insane.
Back in the vestige Lucian guided the party back into the twillight realm following an arcane connection to the mundame realm. Only by supreme confidence in his own abilities (spending confidence points) did Lucian manage not to get lost forever and they eventually returned to Mount Blanik only to discover that a month had passed since they had entered the magic realm.

The also discovered that the strange gateway cave had yielded a pawn of Vim vis that appeared as small white crystal powder in the central bowel. This new vis source was estimated to produce 8 pawns of vis a year, provided the gateway to the magic realm is left open.

The young magi hurried back to Treverorum and headed for Durenmar and the upcoming Tribunal after a days rest.

Rewards
7 story XP and 2 confidence points, in addition Lucian gained one confidence point for guiding the party into the realm of his gods and back again.
Accepting God and feeling his peace descend upon him gave Morrkul an additional confidence point.
All four travellers to the magic realm returned somewhat changed and one personality trait became part of their essential nature.
Borbak, not being aligned to the magic realm gained 5 warping points and emerged somewhat disturbed from his trip. His protective personality has now become part of his essential nature and he does not want to repeat the experience.
The party has also discovered and secretley claimed a Vim Vis source.

1221.1 Spring

Roleplay
Morrkul approaches Damianus¨: “Ahh there you are. How is the wine merchant comming along. Did he leave us some good wine? In any case, you mentioned that you were to head of for Venice to pick up some glass ware. I would be most grateful if you could pick me up some as well… at your convenience of course. I made a list here you see of high quality Beakers, Florence Flasks, Funnels, Canulas, Y-tubes and a few other things. If you could use some company on the way, Anna has always dreamed of seeing the city… and she keeps getting lost here anyway. Just a suggestion. Anyway, be sure to have a word with Rastvan before you set off, he is really a master in his field”

With what little free time available Morrkul investigate the discovered vis (twigs and coins) further, he looks for a coin collector in Prague, do learn what he can about the coins and later try to find some local who is familiar with the forest to identify the type of twigs. Of course he tours the city with Borbak at his side just to minimize the chance of any boorish types trying anything.
Du har en månede freetime per sæson. Med 1 uges rejse fra Durenmar til Prague og 5 dages gaming giver det dig et par ugers fritid i foråret.
Der findes ikke numismatikerer men efter at have spurgt Praenuntius foræller han dig efter en hurtig spontan InTe og InHe at mønten er 800 år gammel og da der er et billede af en romersk kejser på er den nok romersk, grenene er fra en hasselbusk.

Rastvan finished his survey of the site together with Reinhardt the master mason. “Expansion and strengthening of the underground can easily be accomlished…for a price. 12 pawns of vis, any type and the uppermost level is expanded and strengthened however you want it. Walls of bedrock several feet thick, well placed chimneys and ventilation shafts, anything goes. The second level I will not touch, I will not risk the artwork or the death temple. Bad luck messing with places like that, it is.” Reinhardt agreed, “Bad luck for sure. However any woodwork you require can easily be fixed. Your library seems to need some new tables and shelves it would seem.”

Reinhardt went over the wishes Praenuntius expressed for an opulent manor house. “Off course it can be done, that level of quality is only a matter of time and money. 3 years if we start now, it can be finished before winter 1223 for 75 pounds of silver.” “That much?” Praenuntius gasped. He hadn’t expected it to be so expensive. Luckily Damianus had the gold. “Do you accept payment in gold?” he asked. A sly smile crossed Reinhardt’s lips. “Off course I do.” He answered. “I will begin construction right away.”

In summary:
The party, represented by Oberon Valdarus who masqueraded as a rich German investor, spent huge sums of money bying property. The ruin was baught from the church for 20 pounds, the Brothel for 10, the butcher for another 10, while the glassblower Vachlev sold his buisness for 20 pounds of silver, agreeing to stay and work for Master Oberon. The most expensive buy was the wine merchant bought for 4 ounces of pure gold from the Jew David ben David. David also exchanged some of Damianus’ gold to silver, for the meager price of 5 percent.
With the arrival of Reinhardt and Rastvan from Roznov, the demolision of the brothel and clearing of the ruin began and plans for a new grand manor house are underway.

Venedig tur-retur
Damianus had finished packing his things for the journey to Venice, he stood waiting in the newly established courtyard of Treverorum. The place was bustling with activity, Reinhardt had wasted no time after the plans for the new manor house had been finalised with Praenuntius. Like most others Damianus had shown little interest in the interiior layout of the place. The library would be established somewhere on the first floor he believed. Lucian had apparently taken the old library as his sanctum.
Damianus admired the effeciency of the Tremere master mason as he waited for his two travelling companions, Natalia and her little sister Anna.

Construction begins
She had observed them for a while now. They seemed so young and innocent in a naive sort of way, their childish banter reminding her of a young Julia. Two of them at least she suspected of necromanctic interests. One had chained Castor to the rack while the other had questioned him with magic. The second one quickly lost interest in the wretched librarian, but the first one had kept him chained there for quite a while. He had also claimed the ruined laboratory for his new sanctum and had spent significant time examining both the many bodyparts as well as Castors twitching animated corpse.
Was he one of them? She could not tell yet, she waited patiently, observing, thinking, hating; oh how she hated them all, murderers, thieves and now grave robbers. She floated out of the laboratory heading for the stairs down, carefully she avoided the pretty young Transylvanian girl and her sister, luckily it seamed they would be leaving on some buisness for some time.

The coming of summer
Damianus returned from Venice to find the basic form of his sanctum completed.
Rienhardt and Rastvan had been busy. The underground levels of Treverorum were almost complete, with only minor details missing, and the foundations to the manor house had been laid.
Damianus carefully unloaded his antique greek statues from the cart and began looking for some of the other magi.
Oberon Valdarus spent most of spring overseeing the construction phase and acting the role of Prosperous German Immigrant.

1220.4 Winter

Roleplay

Morrkul tries to gather information about Arliandus of Tremere who was part of Treverorum. He sends a letter to Trebonius Sempiterne in Transylvania to inquire, as well as to Covenant of Roznov.. maybe the Tremeres there has some information.
Severicus read the letter thoughtfully, trying to recall events all those years ago. His reply was a careful one.

Salve Morrkul
I knew Arliandus before his death as he held my sigil when I arrived at the Tribunal. He was an exceptional negotiater able to convince fire elementals to at least once try swimming and not dismissing it out of hand. I know he came from the Greater Alps Tribunal and when he settled in Prague he was the only prescence of our house in the entire southeastern part of the Rhine Tribunal. There were some rumours that he had associates who dabbled in necromancy, but I have no knowledge that he ever met with any outside his covenant. To my knowledge Treverorum had no enemies and besides the historic significance it had little of reel value.

You should know that Arliandus did indeed survive the initial attack and ambushed the attackers outside the city. He was killed in the ensuing battle but managed to kill two of the hostile magi. A third unknown magus is known to have survived and his identity was never determined. The identities of the two attackers killed by Arliandus are known to House Tremere but this should be discussed more privately.

Will conquers all
Severicus

p.s. I have attached something for you to study as your assistance in the lab will be needed in the foreseeable future.
p.p.s. Our Exarch will be visiting Durenmar sometime during winter and will want to meet with you.

Morrkul Tiranul considered the letter and looked at the attached reading material. He was delighted to see it was a tractatus of sound quality (Q:12) on magic theory; The magic of defensive constructs, by Hermanus of Tremere.

Morrkul also talks a bit with his fellow covenant sodales to inquire their view on matters suchs as:
- Should we find a new name for the covenant or use Treverorum?
- Do you have any particular view on the covenant charter?
- Do you have anything you personally plan to donate to the covenant?

Praenuntius har nogle tanker som han gerne vil dele med Morrkul og hvem der ellers er tilstede i de hyggelige omgivelser
- Et alternativ kunne være Neo Treverorum, ellers har jeg det fint med Treverorum.
- For mig er det vigtige at vi har en Oath.
-Charterwise synes jeg det er vigtigt at covenantet ikke kan tvinge magi til noget. Da vi er et lige antal magi foreslår jeg en stilling som tiebreaker ved afstemninger, den skal gå på turnus efter hver winter council. Evt andre stillinger som librarian. Udfører man arbejde for covenantet kompenseres man med 2 pawns vis; alternativt kan vi i opstarts fasen indføre at 1 season om året skal dedikeres til covenant work som scribing, enchanting, useful spell research osv… . Jeg vil godt påtage mig rollen som librarian hvis ingen andre melder sig. I hvertfald indtil videre.
- Jeg vil måske donere to tractati til vores bibliotek og oversætte nogle af mine lab texts.

Morrkul nikker og drikker lidt vin: “Ja, jeg synes også vi kan beholde Treverorum some covenant navn. Det er et godt navn og har lidt historik. Vi kunne eventuelt hvert år udbydde en række covenant opgaver til 1-2 vis (I starten) som magi kunne påtage sig for covenant’et. På den måde er det nemt at skelne mellem faktisk covenant arbejde og personlige projekter der naturligvis også gavner Treverorum skulle man håbe.
Man kunne også forstille sig en slags formand for Treverorum, der sætter dagsorden på covenant meetings, men som afstår fra at stemme medmindre der er stemmelighed.”

Lucian Procellus indstemmer at vi beholder Treverorum som navn.
Jeg er enig i at vi ikke tvinger magi til at løse opgaver, men belønner dem der gør. Der er jo mange måder at hjælpe Treverorum uden at skulle bruge en season i laboratoriet.
Det hjælper at have et charter, så vi er enige om hvordan vi vil have tingene til at køre i Treverorum. For mig er det vigtigt at vi respekterer Moranas tempel.
Jeg beholder min pickaxe, men låner den gerne ud til covenantet, hvis jeg ikke selv skal bruge den.
Mine agents er mine, men jeg deler viden og deres evner med covenantet.
Stillingen som ordstyrer eller formand skal da gå på omgang med mindre vi finder en semipermanent løsning. Det medfører jo en del opgaver også. For eksempel så er det formanden der modtager gæster og redcaps.
Jeg synes det er en god ide at når vores covenant kommer op at køre at vi sørger for lokal området også, fx ved at uddele mad til de fattige og sørge for forældreløse. Det sørger for goodwill og at de måske ikke tænker så meget over at vi er mærkelige.

Lucian Procellus skriver igen til Gerhart Falken og Maximillian Schreiber for at forhøre sig hvad der er af metalforekomster i området især på sølvområdet. Og skulle der være noget, så bedes de inkludere detaljer om ejerne. Som altid er deres hjælp uvurderlig og Lucian glæder sig over at snart komme tættere på, så deres fælles planer kan udfolde sig og bære frugt.

Egbert always enjoyed talking to the young Tremere when they met, he always had so much gossip from outside Durenmar. “As I hear they have chosen Prague as the site of a new covenant.” Egbert told the Tremere. "They have joined with a newly arrived Guernicus from Sicily and Oberon, whom I believe you know. “Interesting” the Tremere replied, his curiosity peeked somewhat “Tell me what you know of their plans and I will share a little known fact about Oberon’s apprenticeship.” Unable to resist the urge to know more Egbert recalled all the rumors he had heard about the plans for Treverorum.

Ulrike found Lucian and Morrkul in the Durenmar guesthouse enjoying som wine and having a good time. “I thought I might find you here. I have some letters for both of you.” She handed two letters to Lucian and one to Morrkul. “Now I need to see if I can get one of the good rooms. Last time I was gone they gave my room to some arrogant Flambeau, cause they didn’t dare give him one af the bad ones. I meen come on…I’m a permanet resident of Durenmar I can’t live in some windy dump with a hole in the roof.” Ulrike rolled her eyes and headed towards the bar.

Lucian hid his eagerness from Morrkul when he opened and read the first letter from Gerhart Falken.

Dear Friend
I have infiltrated the court of King Otakar under the cover of representing a wealthy and prosperous German wishing to settle in the area around Prague. Although I have been unable to get an audience with the King himself I have met whith the Lord Chamberlain. He informs me that the King welcomes prosperous Germans to Bohemia together with the money and trade they bring. It is my impression that his ambitions are very high, possibly he aims for his descendents to have a shot at hte Imperial throne itself.
I have also discovered that king Otakar keeps a court wizard at court. He goes by the name Cagliostro and originates from Naples, apparentky the King invited him to stay somehow imlrpessed with his services. I have met with him and discreetly inquired about his knowledge of the Order of Hermes. He knows about the Order but considers them to be dangerous and arrogant powermongers to be avoided at all cost.
I have also looked into the property around the Treverorum as you asked. All the property above Treverorum, except the ruined house, was sold by a single individual in 1773 and the money donated to the church. The burned ruin was donated to [[The church of St. Bartholomeus | The church of St. Bartholomeus]] some 12 miles east of Prague.
Also I have done some inquiries into any silver production in the area. Some time ago the Cisternian monestary of Sedlec in Kutna south east of Prague found silver on its grounds. They have only done modest mining until the recent apponitment of Abbot Heidenreich, who has expanded the mining operation significantly. Also several investors and nobles have attempted to purchase land around Kutna from the monestary, so far very little land has been sold off. One particular buyer is of note; a very sinister and wholly unpleasent character named Tolides whom I met briefly at the Bishops court. He was tall and gaunt with a haunted look in his eyes. From his demeanor I suspect he may be a Hermetic magus.

If you require any further information please let me know.
Your loyal friend

Gerhardt

The second letter to Lucian was from Maximillian Schreiber, it too was read carefully with a feigned disinterest.

Master L

I have gained employ under Jochen Stahn a German merchant in Prague. As far as I can tell he seems to be the most succesfull. Originating in Rotweill he came to Prague some 15 years ago and his buisness has expanded ever since. He own several warehouses along the river and half a dozen boats sailing as far as Hamburg. As far as I can tell he deals in all types of goods passing through Prague except slaves.
I estimate his assets to be worth several thousand pounds of silver.
As per your request I have investigated the people in the vicinity of The Blue Boar Inn. The Inn itself is remarkably pleasent and I always find all my troubles far away when visiting. I is run by a couple in their mid-forties whom seem very happy and in no way inclined to sell. Their three children help with running the inn. The brothel is quite run down and overpriced. The owner is an obnoxius fat woman with a sinful reputation. The glass blower, Vachlev is a sorry sight. His wife has recently run off with a knight errant who returned from the fourth crusade and promised her riches in the newly concoured city of Constantinople. Rumour has it Vachlev has been unable to provide her with a child. He spends most his time drinking in the inn and his buisness seems to be running into the ground. The wine merchant is run by Isaac,
a jew who knows nothing of magi, or of the former covenant. Isaac is taking advantage of recent changes in rabbinical law that now permit the selling of grape products to Gentiles. He manages the shop on behalf of its owner, his uncle, who is a prominent Jew called David ben David. The smith, tanner, butcher and toolmaker are all succesful craftsmen who can most likely be bought out for a reasonable price. The jew will likely be very expensive and I believe that the Inn keeper won’t sell for any price.

Lucian Procellus læser begge breve og føler en iver begynde at tage form. Her er der en udfordring! Straks kontakter han Ulrike for at høre om hun kender noget til Cagliostro og Tolides. Lucian prøver også at snakke med de andre fra Treverorum om de to mænd. Caglistro er helt sikkert en vi skal være opmærksomme på og forsigtige omkring, da han har kongens øre og ikke er OoH venligstemt. Samtidig er han jo tydeligvis en hedgemage, så han skal vel have valget “join or die”. Tolides skal vel overtales til at give os sølvminerne og vi kan måske lave en aftale med klosteret om at købe sølv fra dem.

Ulrike har ikke hørt om Cagliostro men fortæller at der er en del court wizards rundt om ved de tyske hoffer. Navnet Tolides siger hende ikke noget men hun har set en magi der kunne passe beskrivelsen i Lübeck.
Praenuntius kan fortælle at han har mødt en Tolides i Castra Solis for nogle år siden. Han var Perdo specialist og vist nok udlært i Triamore.

Trebonius Sempiterne read the letter carefully before considering his answer. His new agent seemed promising, but then again so had the others. Still he had a good feeling about this one. If anyone could discover what had truly happened to Arliandus it would be Morrkul Tiranul. Trebonius sometimes missed Arliandus, his quick wits and dry remarks had lightened the mood on countless occasions in the Alps. Trebonius began penning his reply.

Praenuntius vil prøve at undersøge mulighederne for at købe to berømte Flambeau bøger som bla. findes i the great library. En Ignem lvl 14 summae og en penetration lvl 5 summae.
Begge er rimelig udbredte værker af Flambeaus første apprentice.

Oberon Valdarus woke suddenly, this dream had been different. The old magus had been aplauded in the Durenmar Guesthouse by several other mages. He had seemed quite happy and proud of himself. Oberon tried talking to him during the small party in the dream, but someone kept getting in his way no matter how hard he tried. Perhaps he could dream the same dream again and learn more of this moment in the mysterious magus’ life.

In summary:
Morrkul Tiranul met with Stentorius who required an update on this new Tremeres recent activities. Stentorius also promised to send some aid to rebuild Treverorum.

Damianus Philocrates convinced Murion to allow him to learn the spell Touch of Midas, so he could create enough gold to finance the rebirth of Treverorum.

Morrkul Tiranul, den første der ankom tilbage til Durenmar kiggede sig lidt omkring efter nogen der kunne have lyst til et spil skak.
Efter et par spil mod Anna og hvem der nu havde lyst, så var det tid til at undersøge disse mælkebøtte-frø nærmerer. Morkull begave sig runt forskellige steder i Durenmar for at undersøge hvordan vinden påvirkede disse frø, og endnu mere kritisk… hvordan frøene påvirkede vinden!
Imens trænede Natália og Borbak kampteknik. Anna, der ikke kunne fordrage kamp, og sin søsters mærkelige fasination af våben tullede lidt rundt alene på Duenmar for at lede efter venlige spøgelser der måske havde en god historie at fortælle.

Praenuntius entered The Blue Boar Inn. It seemed nice and cozy with a pleasent atmosphere. A few regulars looked up but paid little notice to him and Ana. “I think I see someone we know” Praenuntius said to Ana, pointing to a table with two out-of-place characters. He walked up to them, grabbed a chair and sat down, “Mind if we join you?” he asked. Oberon Valdarus looked up, “Weren´t you at Durenmar?” he asked quizically. ‘’Yes, during spring. We talked breifly in the library. So who is your friend’’ Praenuntius nodded at the silent armoured figure who shared Oberon´s table. ‘’Forgive my manners, this is Sigismund ex Guernicus. He travelled with me from Durenmar’‘. ’’We have been looking for you’’ Sigismund interrupted, eyeing Ana suspicioulsy. Praenuntius responded to the Quesitors gaze: ‘’This is Ana, an Amici of Morrkul Tiranul, she is quit harmless…and under my protection. But please tell us, what have you learned of this place?’’ They ordered some beer and began to get more aquainted with each other.

The corpse rose suddenly and swiftly, much to Lucian´s surprise, quickly he began muttering an incantation in response. Morrkul suddenly collapsed in pain. “Unngh, this place, much pain” he gasped. Morrkul saw briefly how a black clad figure entered the library, a heavy hood covered his features. “No witnesses!” he hissed as pointed a bony finger towards a skinny librarian. The librarian collapsed in agony. The black-clad figure then proceeded to light the library on fire with a manic laugh.

Meanwhile Borbak was greatly enjoying himself in the nearby brothel, oblivious to the danger his master was in. He had not seen so many skimpily clad crumpets since Vienna. “Petra will do nicely” he told the mistress and handed her some coin. Prague is a nice place he thought to himself and smiled at Petra.

Lucian quickly summoned a gust of wind that pinned the corpse against the ceiling, Morrkul and Natalia stabbed it repeatedly until it stopped moaning. The magi dragged the corpse to the rack they had previously found in a ruined laboratory. Here Damianus used his necromantic powers to question the long dead Revenant. The young magi discovered that the revenant was once Castor the librarian of Treverorum and that he had been killed by a hooded figure wielding hermetic magic. Driven by hatred and a desire for revenge and perhaps something else Castor had become an unquiet dead. The magi finished investigating the Ruins of Treverorum discovering the ancient pagan shrine to Morena and a huge wall painting. In the temple the magi found the ghost of a long dead girl who was murdered by Selena Tibicena when defending herself against attack by the unknown assailants who killed her. Wisely the magi decided not to take the girls bones with her but did promise to give her a decent burial.

After a good nights rest the young magi and their retinue travlelled to Rudaria in order to investigate. They discovered the remains of a long since destroyed manor house and overgrown hops fields. After not being able to find anything but a lvl 2 dominion aura the party quickly left for Rheinstein.

At Rheinstein the magi found out that the covenant ruins were occupied by Lord Robert, the bastard son of Lord Schönburg who rules the surrounding lands. Lucian Procellus conducted a covert investigation and identified a lvl 3 magic aura covering Pfalz Island and several heavily armed bandits/toll-gatherers.

The young magi decided to hold their first council meeting to discuss which site to choose. Praenuntius argued for resettling Oakdell or searching for other sites. Damianus Philocrates and Lucian Procellus voted for Rheinstein while Morrkul Tiranul, Sigismund and Oberon Valdarus voted for settling in Prague. After finally agreeing to resettling Treverorum the young magi split up to find sponsors from the Covenants of the Rhine.

Morrkul Tiranul travelled to Roznov where he met with Severicus who promised to sponsor the new covenant and supply money and other means to rebuild Treverorum. Morrkul then left for Irencillia. Here he experienced a wonderful faerie city in the treetops and met with several magi. Only the magus Iacob had any desire to speak with Morrkul and after a few days decided that a covenant in Prague was not a threat to the fey. After Morkull promised that the party of young magi would seek counsel at Irencillia before conducting buisness with faeries again, he agreed to act as sponsor. Morrkul left for Durenmar soon after.

Praenuntius took the form of a crow and together with Citus they flew towards Waddenzee. After returning to Durenmar they reported that Lucas von Beck, a follower of Flambeau and known Perdo specialist, would gladly sponsor the new covenant on the condition that the young magi support them in an expected case at the next Tribunal. Lucas insists that despite accusations of the contrary, Waddenzee has not broken the Code of Hermes.

Damianus Philocrates, Sigismund and Oberon Valdarus left together towards Magdeburg. Here Oberon left the others and headed towards Fengheld´s main site. Here he met with Dorana a Trianoma Magus and after giving all the right answers to her questions and agreeing to join the Linden Gild, she agreed to sponsor the new covenant.

Damianus Philocrates and Sigismund left Magdeburg and headed towards Lübeck and the covenant of Oculus Septentrionalis. Here they stayed at Das Goldenes Kalban inn and pleasure house run by Imanitos Mendax the only magus in Lübeck either of the two magi had heard about. Imanitos was freindly and forthcoming and quickly agreed to sponsor the new covenant. Damianus expressed concerns that this might be because he did not want him or Sigismund to ask any of the other members of Oculus Septentrionalis for sponsorship.

After a few days in luxury Damianus Philocrates and Sigismund sailed to Rügen in search for Crintera. Almost imediately after landing they were approached by the Archmage Urgen. He agreed to sponsor the new covenant if the magi in return would discover who had been stealing vis from a cave located near the top of Mount Blatnik. Happy the two magi headed back to Durenmar.

Meanwhile Lucian Procellus travelled to Trier in search of the winter covenant Sapientia Aetatum. After speaking with Benjamin and his father little was achieved. Lucian also gave up trying to comunicate with a senile Björnaer and his insane magus friend. Instead he found the newly gauntleted Pantos in a nearby swamp who was eager to sponsor the new covenant in return for nothing more than future friendship.

Lucian then headed to Triamore were the magi were unable to commit at this time and said they would be in touch after winter. Empty handed Lucian returned to Durenmar.

All the young magi met at Durenmar having secured sponsors from most covenants of the Rhine.
Triamore would reply after winter and Dankmar seems impossible to meet with before the Tribunal meeting itself as they are impossible to find and not even redcaps visit them unless in an emergency.

Meeting the Praeco. Ulrike´s mishap. The Oakdell Ruins.

“There is a message for you.” Egbert strolled up to Morrkul Tiranul and handed him the note. “Seems you finally get to meet the Praeco. A bit of warning though, she can be very judgemental at times and expects people to jump at her every whim” with that last remark Egbert left Morrkul with the letter, which he promptly opened.

Salve Sodales
You are hereby summoned before Archmagus Murion, Prima of House Bonisagus, Preaco of the First Tribunal.
You are expected at the Forum of Hermes on the first day of summer at sunrise.

At last a meeting Morrkul thought! Feeling even more important than usual he hurried of to find the others.

The four young magi met with Archmagus Murion in the Forum of Hermes.
She told them that the founding of a new covenant had been descided by the Tribunal,
and several sites of old abandoned covenants had been determined in Bohemia.
Lucian believed this to mean that Murion and a few close friends had descided it to be so. He could not be certain of their motives though.
The party was directed to the great library were tribunal recordings of suitable former covenants had been prepared for reading.
At the great library the young magi discovered that the prepared recordings required several days of sorting through.
Meanwhile some notes from House Mercere were supposed to have been delivered by Ulrike. She had not arrived on time and the librarian was a little worried.
Morrkul together with Praenuntius stayed at the library to sort through the recordings while Lucian, Damianus Philocrates, Borbak and Natália Dimir headed into The Black Forest in search of Ulrike.

After leaving Durenmarthe party travelled through the forest and after a long and hard day of walking the arrived at Gunhilde´s house.
Gunhilde.jpg Gunhilde_s_house.jpg
Gunhilde welcomed the party and offered a warm horribly smelling stew and good night´s rest. Early next morning the party (except Borbak) had more disgusting stew and went on their way.
After a second day of gruelling travel through the woods the party arrived at the stone circle, but one of the stones had slipped down the slope disrupting the magical protection at the campsite. After a brief investigation the party was attacked by a Bogman. The creature paralyzed Borbak and Natalia with fear and jumped on Lucius wounding him heavily. Damianus managed to restore Borbak to his senses and Borbak quickly assulted the Bogman placing his giant poleaxe deep in its chest.

Further investigation revelead som digging tools and Ulrike´s backpack, several small footsteps lead off into the dark.
After a nights rest the party headed off in pursuit.
Ulrike had been captured by goblins and was meant as a sacrifice to the Green Lady of the swamp. From the descriptions given by the goblin leader Ogdok Natalia identified the Green Lady as a type of Faerie vampire the feeds on the fear of the dark forest, and human flesh. The party prepared thouroughly and thanks to Natalia´s knowledge of Vampires The Green Lady was quickly killed off when she arrived to feast on Ulrike.
The party headed back to Durenmar in triumph.

At Durenmar the young magi hooked up in the guesthouse, Morkull and Praenuntius revelead their findings in the library while Lucian and Damianus showed the notes Ulrike had brough from Fengheld.
After a well deserved rest the party descided to head out in the direction of Bamberg to explore the lost covenants.

Oakdell.jpg
The party traveled by foot to the city of Rottweil and from there to the Nurenberg-Prague trade route. They quickly found a boat to take them to Bamberg for a small fee.
From Bamberg the party headed north towards Plauen and turned into the forest when they reached the town of Ems. From Ems they headed into the forest and after passing the Village of Herschbach they found the remains of Oakdell. They investigated the site, spoke to the locals, harvested 4 pawns of Auram vis and quickly headed towards Prague.

Treverorum.jpg
Arriving in Prague almost two weeks after leaving Durenmar the party quickly found The Blue Boar Inn and the remains of Treverorum. Borbak located an adjacent Brothel and went to investigate while Praenuntius went to the Inn together with Anna Dimir. Morrkul Tiranul and Natália Dimir found an adjacent overgrown and little used graveyard and located the supposed tomb of Selena Tibicena a House Bonisagus necromancer. Meanwhile Lucian Procellus investigated the area while invisible and Damianus Philocrates found a staircase leading down in an abandoned and overgrown garden behind the winestore and inn. Overcome by curiosity he headed down and discovered the underground part of Treverorum. Joined by Lucian Procellus, Morrkul Tiranul and Natália Dimir they proceeded to search the ruined covenant. The party quickly concluded that, whatever had happened the place had not been destroyed by clergy as the tribunal records hinted at but by someone skilled in the arts of destructive hermetic magic. In the library on the second level Lucian Procellus found a corpse and when he poked it, it came alive!
Battle commences!

1220.1 - Spring
Arriving at Durenmar

Smogg: This is the first season (Spring). I will also try to guide a bit on how we structure the seasons in the log here. I suggest we keep italics for the GM. So mainly Johan will be using that format. In general try focus descriptions on what your characters do and say. Let Johan use italics when he wish to elaborate on something specific. The journal is not meant to consume a lot of time for players who don’t have it, so don’t expect more out of it than what you write yourself. I will make sure to generate the season pages, and I will also help generate and structure journal entries based on actual gaming sessions (which may span more sessions depending on the GM)

Roleplay

Smogg: Here we can get a bit of RP going for those who are up for it. Keep in mind that some players may have more time than others. It’s not mandatory to come up with stuff here, but it will add to the fun

Morrkul Tiranul passed between the two towers in Durenmar. The old covenant was all that he expected, but it had been a long journey from Transylvania. He hoped to find likeminded young magi interested in establishing a solid covenant and with proper backing and contacts like himself. Confident in his mission, he starts to get to know the magi present and search for some fireplace where he can chat a bit while warming himself with some ale, and some bread and cheese.

When Praenuntius arrived the servant was ready to meet him, “Greetings Harbinger, we have expected you.” he said. Praenuntius could never remember his name and didn’t really care. “Bring my things to my usual room” Praenuntius commanded. As the servant scurried to obey Praenuntius made way to the great library. His donation of tractati would grant him several seasons of access to study. If he was going to track down his quarry he needed to expand his capabilities.
“Citus” he called out, the large eagle swooped down and landed nearby. “Find out who the other newcomers are, we need to know if they can be of use to us” Citus flew off as Praenuntius headed towards the library.

“It seems we are being watched” Natália hissed. Borbak‘s hand reflectively moved to the shaft of his large axe. Morkull dismissed their caution with a slight wave of his hand. “The long journey has made you both paranoid. Join me for a game instead” He moved a pawn and awaited her move. ".. and don’t be so surprised there is interest in our arrival. That is what we count on after all"

As Lucian packed his bags with all his belongings in Roznov he was humming to himself as his plans were layed out before him. Sure that Gerhard was already in place where commanded, Lucian set out towards the one place he knew he could find more help, Durenmar. The book he got as a reward for completing his Gauntlet in a most satisfactory manor was first on his list to read, so it could be traded for more insight and access to the wealth of information that is the library of Durenmar. Upon arrival Lucian wastes no time finding out who has the best gossip to better aid his plans. With his head singing with plans and tidbits of information he sits, watches people pass by and sips the excellent beer.

“Good greetings traveler!”, Morrkul joining Lucian with a large mug of beer. “You should try some of this cheese. It is just not something you find to the East”, handing Lucian a sample. “But then after a long travel almost anything is a treat, eh? Well. I am Morrkul Tiranul of House Tremere, I have just arrived from Transylvania, have you heard the rumors of the lost covenants?”. Morrkul is also quick to share the gossip around the Owl and the magus who bought access to the Library already.

Praenuntius arrived at the common room in the guesthouse late that evening. His studies had been quite fruitful and now he needed to rest his head with som wine and cheese.
He quickly spotted the group Citus had talked about. Apparently Citus had been chased off by the pretty lady and was now roaming the forest in search of prey. “How was I to know she didn’t dress like a scamp on purpose?” he had remarked. Somehow Citus always ended up insulting people unkowingly.
Preanuntius headed towards the table. “Morkul and Lucian I presume?” he signalled for his usual order of german wine and some hard cheese. “Mind if I join you?” he asked, seating himself before they had a chance to respond. “I hear you have been asked to found a new covenant, I know because I got the same invite. I just heard Murion intends to send a formal invite to a meating one of these days. We have much to discuss.”
The arrival of the wine and cheese marked the beginning of a lengthy talk that lasted all through the night.

“By all means, do join us. You are expected”. Morrkul reply gesturing towards where Preanuntius is already sitting. “Yes, it is true, I have ventured here with the purpose of setting up a covenant. Your own agenda is most auspicious as it aligns well with mine. I hear there are several potential locations to found a new home.” Morrkul enjoyed the quality cheese and was playing casually with some kind of boardgame where marbles are moved around.
Meanwhile in the forest, Natália was stalking around for pray, whispering to herself “… if I could only get my hands on that bird…” as she readied for another shot.

Ulrike had enjoyed their company greatly these last couple of weeks. The Tremere always seemed so serious compared to the two others, and his morbid remarks were sometimes quit inappropriate. The others were more fun, both were charming and joyous types, although the Flambeau´s complete lack of any sense of humour and total temperence made him for dull company in the long run. If only the Tytalus had had the Tremeres good looks then perhaps…
She finished her eggs and sausage and began to rise. “Leaving already?” Lucian asked.
I am off to Fengheld, apparently I am to retreive some documents from the Mercere house there and bring them to some young magi here at Durenmar. It wouldn´t happen to be you would it?, she answered. “Tell me more of these documents” Morrkul answered immediately. “I have no idea what they are. You will have to wait and find out. See you in a couple of weeks.” Ulrike waved goodbye and left the guesthouse.
