Agios Minas Saga
Agios Minas covenant
Access: Supplies have once again begun to be harvested from the small but relatively
profitable village of Pegeas. While far from being wealthy, the covenant is well stocked on
Distance: While pegeas is nearby, getting fully stocked on supplies requires up to a days
travel to larger towns outside the covenant.
Seclusion: Until recently the covenant looked like a secluded village near an abandoned
monastery. As Carolina has begun rebuilding in the past year, curious
travelers have started dropping by regularly, up to twice a week. Because of the monastery
of Agios Minas, some travelers come expecting to deal with monks or to seek sanctuary.
Environment: The temperate climate and clean ocean air is great for your arthritis: +2 on
Size: The covenant consists of a medium sized monestary with a moderate amount of surrounding lands which are under the covenant’s control (includes Pegeas). Between the monestary itself and the village there is room at the covenant for 8 magi, 40 specialists and 100 grogs. A
large and impressive entrance hall to the monastery marks stands proud and sturdy. It is one of the few buildings to survive the templar’s assault and subsequent abandonment. A tower containing a rookery for hunting hawks and messenger pigeons is also mostly still standing and half way functional. Apion Edessa has tended the birds over the years and their are a few in the rookery now.
p.Repair: The monastery is in steady disrepair, and it will need 40 pounds of silver a year in upkeep or things will get worse.
StoresVis Stock: Not all of the Vis was taken by the templar: they did not recognize much of it! There are 150 pawns of Vis in storage.
p.Supplies: Fairly well stocked in supplies from the labor of the peasants.
Allies: You all just got here, you have not had a chance to make friends.
p.Enemies: Of course you do not have any enemies. Why would anyone possibly not like you.
p.Contacts: Carolina has some spies, and treasure hunters, that she has established to keep information flowing to the covenant.
ImprovementIncome: The upside is that, Agias Minos has fertile land and productive peasents that could potentially supply it with a steady stream of income. The downside, is that after a generation of neglect the peasents handing over the fruit of their labor to a bunch of mages. You are currently taking in much less than is being generated by the land. You make a surplus of 50 pounds silver a year. Vis Supply: The raw magical power of the land used to provide a plentiful stock of vis. A grove near the old wood produced a seasonal harvest of animal and herbam vis. Water from whirlpools in the bay near the monastery provided Aquam and Muto vis. Unusually large purple butterflies and other strange specimens flocking about the fields were a source of Mentem, Vim, and Creo vis. All of these sources seem to have vanished. It is unknown whether they have left the covenant lands, been hidden or stolen by enemies, or have just gone into hiding. For now only a puny 15 pawns of vis a year can be harvested. Inhabitants: The monastery is moderately sized and can meet the needs of an average group mages. Between the village and monastery there is also plenty of space for grogs and companions. Agios Minas has the infrustrcuture to support 7 magi 20 specialists and 200 grogs. Of the grogs on the land there are roughly 150 in the village of Pegeas and at any time 10 to 50 at the monastery.
LibrarySpells: The library was plundered by the mages who left to escape the templar. What is now available is only what Carolina Is willing to share, some donations from the tribunal when the charter was established, and what the other players bring. In total the library currently has 900 levels of spells.
p.Hermetic Books: Similar to spells, Agios Minas is also in dire need of rebuilding its once prestigious library of books on hermetic lore. There are only 270 points of books available.
p.Mundane Books: : these have been seen as even less of a priority given the sad state of the library. There are only 60 points of mundane books remaining.
