Welcome to the Saga of the Covenant of Crom Gleann


This will serve as a place where we can chronicle the events of our current Ars Magica saga. Hopefully in time others will use this namespace for the same purpose and we will have many different sagas chronicled on this wiki. As I develop this namespace further I hope to have a space in this namespace for each of the players in our current campaign to keep their own 'journals' and to thus have out entire saga preserved.

Valleypic


The Covenant of Crom Gleann was founded in 1033, in a secluded and heavily wooded valley in Wales, in the Stonehenge Tribunal and in close proximity to the established, Tremere-dominated Covenants of Blackthorn and Taeglyn. The new Covenant was first housed in scattered longhouses, some built by mundane means and others conjured from the earth by Chalybus Gnarus. In the Spring of 1039 a large hexagonal stone structure was magically created by Lapideus, in which the Magi are now housed.

Relations with Blackthorn and Taeglyn are tense, while dialogues with Cad Gadu and Schola Pythagoranis are relatively cordial. Crom Gleann's chief ally within the Tribunal, however, was Fidus Legatus of the Lineage of Trianoma, a Magus of Cad Gadu, who was mysteriously slain en route to Crom Gleann.

Here is the forum for the Occultus Bellum saga.

The Magi of Crom GleannEdit

Former MembersEdit

  • Reynard, a follower of Bjornaer. Founding Member, killed during the expedition to the dead covenant of Lux Draconis in Spring of 1054.
  • Medicus the Green, a Magus Ex Miscellanea. Founding Member and former Presiding Magus. Left Crom Gleann in search of a home with less conflict.

The Companions of Crom GleannEdit

Former CompanionsEdit

  • Ole, a dwarf and the Covenant's former seneschal. Died in 1059 when he traveled north to defend his familial lands in a conflict with the celts.

The Charter of the Covenant of Crom GleannEdit

Crom Gleann has no formal charter. Instead, decisions are made by the Presiding Magi, chosen from among the membership. The presiding Magi at the Covenant's founding were Bellepheron and Medicus. Other members of the Covenant can call for a vote of no confidence in the leadership at any time, at which point the members vote on whether to keep or expel a presiding magus from that position. This has hapenned once; a vote of no confidence was called upon Medicus by Chalybus Gnarus when Medicus suffered a prolonged Twilight episode. The vote went against Medicus, and the subsequent vote to appoint a successor was a tie between Chalybus and Lapideus. The tie was settled through Certamen, which was won by Chalybus.

Vis Sources of Crom GleannEdit

Vis Source Description
The Gift of ProteusAs the first rays of sun strike the rock face on the first day of spring the water in the pool takes on a very sulfurous odor and if collected from the source it at this time it is worth 9 pawns of Vim vis. Once it falls into the pool, the vis is absorbed by a particular species of swamp lily normally only found in fetid swamps (it grows here because of the sulfur). Each week of spring that passes one pawn of Vim vis is absorbed into the plants and is converted into Creo vis. If the lilies are allowed to wilt and die (this happens very quickly at the end of spring since the sulfer is now gone) the dead plants can be collected for 9 pawns of Perdo vis. This vis will vanish as the plants rot, washed down the stream by the end of the first month of summer.
Maen MadocA tall standing stone along an old, long unused road marks a Roman roadside burial site. Moss growing on the north side of the stone is harvestable for 4 pawns of Herbam vis per year. There are several other smaller stones carefully arranged around the main stone. Currently controlled by Taeglyn by Tribunal ruling.
The Sower's FieldA patch of scorched earth in an open field. Every year in the early Summer the summer the spot is struck by lightning and the soil can be harvested for 5 pawns of Auram vis. According to legend, many years ago a shaman was hit by lightning while sowing seeds in this field; since then the field has remained fallow and is struck again every year. This has now been lost to Taeglyn per Tribunal ruling.
Dinas MaelorIn the ruins of an ancient Celtic fortress, the bones of fallen soldiers from some ancient battle can be foun. Each attempt to search the ruins yields 1d10 pawns of Corpus vis in bones per year. These can be collected in any season but Winter.
The Lonely ThroneIn the middle of seemingly nowhere, there is a throne crudely carved out of stone. It looks as though it has been there for a very long time and undergrowth has grown up and around it, making it difficult to find. On the back of the throne there is a strange rune carved into the rock. Anyone who sits in the chair will never leave the chair again and after they die and their body decomposes, their bones may also be harvested for 3 pawns of Corpus vis.
Whispered Words on Leathery WingsA cave near the shore is inhabited with bats that fly out across all of Wales . When they return just before dawn they discuss what they have seen. Their droppings contain Intellego vis and if one can understand what the bats are speaking about, one may hear something interesting.
The Pit of DecayIn a deeply wooded are there is a deep pit into which animals will fall from time to time. The mushrooms that grow in the bottom of this pit can be harvested for 8 pawns of Perdo vis. It is tricky to collect the vis since the pit itself is about 10 feet deep.
Combs of Eversweet HoneyIn central Cornwallum in a heavy wooded area, there stands a long dead Linden tree. At the heart of the tree though, lies a great nest of bees. these bees gather pollen from the surrounding wildflowers and create the sweetest honey to be found. On the last day of spring and the first day of autumn the honey can be collected. There will be 3-5 pawns of Rego vis each collection time. If not collected from in the spring there will be 5-7 pawns in the autumn.
