The second game occurred. And then a year passed. In the process of getting ready for the first game in a year I have been compiling from both my notes and the notes of the players, what had happened in the previous game. Here is what I have pieced together.
The game itself spans the seasons of spring and summer of 1220.
The magi set out to investigate the surroundings of their covenant. While doing so they stumbled upon a bronze giant that apparently circles the island and defends it from invaders. His name is Talos.
The spring lab activities were listed in the previous post.
Continuing to investigate the island of Crete, the magi set out to explore the Gorge of Apollon. They traveled deep into the heart of the gorge where they found a locked iron gate that was guarded by archers. The archers spoke an archaic form of Greek that was difficult to understand. But after much negotiation, the magi were allowed to pass through the gate and proceed on to a village. The village itself was within a faerie aura. And the magi noted that some of the items within the village could be used for vis. They negotiated with the village elders and were able to exchange fish and fruit for arrowheads and flowers that can be used for perdo and aurum vis.
A few weeks after they returned from their expedition to the gorge, the covenant was visited by a redcap. He brought several bits of mail for the magi.
1: A package for Elytus that contained items that once belonged to his parens.
2: A letter to all the Magi from Moero’s Garden. This letter requested aid in retaking Constantinople in the form of vis or silver.
A response letter was drafted thanking them for their kind words and expressing support for their cause. But since Filii Jovis was a new covenant with scant resources, they are unable to provide material support at this time.
