Session 9 Nov 2022

Sean Blonde Beard, knows the Quaestores Regina and was traveling with her to Elk’s run through Killaloe. They ran into the current situation in town, investigating and even earning a penny.

There is some news they were carrying on the way before learning of Chief Tormac’s “rescue”. Near the Loch Derg, lake, there is now a town growing up called Shoreham which is built somewhat too well, becoming more than the hamlet it was a few years ago - it used to be a sub-par inn (it was just 4 cottages)

Chief Tormac Ó Conchobhair, leader of the clan from Connacht apparently drove away the “demons”, making a ruse of saving the people from a threat they created. They were very generous with the church. Tormac chased away sir Roland, Tormacs right right hand banished them

Tim gathered some intel and an arcane connection pebble from just outside the tents. At the same time Una (in disguise), Nemoy and two grogs that Tormacs army has not seen before all traveled to Killaloe on a fact finding mission.

Una recognized Sean, and the party shared information, confirmed their initial findings of the ruse by asking others and made camp for the evening in a secure spot a handful of paces into the tree line - outside the Dominion aura of the town as Regina is disturbed by it.

Camped in the Forest, Sean may night walk and they will all seek a morning audience with Tormac.

Spring 1242

Regina make a tour to talk to native magi and get a better understanding of the Peripheral Code. She first visits Visioturpis.

The magi discuss how to deal with Una’s grievance and the tribunal

Summer 1242: Tribunal

Informal meetings

  • Session 11 January 2023
  • Cast Una, Tim, Nemoy, Regina, Quinn

Una tries to gather support to restrict the Coil Tri further. They talk to:

Una also makes book trades with Carolus of Criamon whom they met several times in the 1220s, and who has now founded a new covenant in Meath.

They meet with Tormac, as agreed. Una wants to bar them from using the Valley of Elk’s Run ever again. In the discussion it is suggested that continued hostilities could have concequences for the trade in Killaloe too, and nobody will admit to causing harm by travelling through the valley again. Modest compensation for the killed grog is offered though.

In the end, they make the agreement with Tormac that they waive all claims to compensation, also for the grog, in exchange for free trade access in Killaloe. Una promises to declare Wizard’s War on any of the hedge wizards in the entourage if they ever enter the valley again, but she says nothing against Tormac’s mundane crew or the rest of the Coil Tri.

Autumn 1242: The Fire in Shoreham

The magi are called to Shoreham to investigate a fire. The Bishop suspects that Hermetic magic has been behind it, and he has taken the matter to the Order.

Fire in Shoreham

Played 1 MNarch 1223 (and other sessions?)

Meeting with the Bishop

Exploring in Killaloe

The priest is well-disposed and can say a lot. They are told that the bishop visited very quickly after the disaster. Mass was celebrated several times, and after that things have gotten a lot better for many people in town.

The magi investiage a small neighbourhood of smiths very carefully. Una interviews animals. Sean enchants the smith and his family with enchanting music to give room for Regina’s investigative magic.

Reporting to the Bishop Regina asked why the bishop had suspected magic interference.
He said that one of his canons, called Gwaine, had recommended the investigation.

Aftermath They ask the ravens of the town to watch out and to visit Elk’s Run with reports.
