An online Ars Magica session

Recommended Posts

Nagash what would it need for your Corbenik to get a High Pre+Leadership together with the ability to teach the guards in Single Weapon or Great Weapons and maybe Brawl at com+teaching+3=>10?

Because the highest position in the covenant regarding any type off armed forces is the Turb Captain and only he usualy direct reports to the mages.

As we not even have the birth of our curent Turb Captain and you actual playing as if you having his position sometimes I think it would be great if he can be replaced by your char.

I.e. for the yearly meeting Wits will do you probably replace the curent Turb Captain because he don't have time out of some reason.

In your position I think your direct next higher is the Turb Captain but you also have to take orders from the 4 town Magistartes as well because they are the law for one of the 4 sectors.

The Turb Captian and the Autocrat are the two highest jobs a human who is no magus or redcap can get in our Covenant. Both are below any magus and redcap in the covenant.

So yes that effective means this pesky familiars and other pets the mages might have are put above a simple guard captain and even the guard grogs of a mage are usual beyond the postion the city guards can do anything.

Given the assasin attempt Aiden and the Hyperborean Magistart could order Corbenik around and the Spirit is most likly protected from anything trough Dirk so only Teitale would fall full under the normal laws but a other mage might take pity in him.

The laws where never fair at this time no mather where you live and such bad situations where a city guard have to be very carfull how he do his job as higher ups or people standing outside the law are involved are not common but happen from time to time.

I think it's feasible to have Corbenik responsible for "guarding" whereas the turb captain does the "training". The turb captain would hardly have time for patrolling and such anyway, since he has to training people much of the time.

Sorry but the Turb Captains position and effect on Loyality is his Pre+Leadership, the training comes second place. If he no longer have this position then we have to rename his postion and name a new Turb Captain. What effective means we will have to pay both direct from the covenant as Specialists.

Just read trough Covenants about the function and effect of the Turb Captain.

The Turb Captain is one of the 2 Leadership marionette we have placed:

 

Eudokia the Autocrat who works as Steward and Chamberlain

and

Chabrias the Turb Captain have his Pre+Leadership

 

both have a huge impact on our Loyality as the Turb Captain gives us 11 point and the Autocrat even 17 point what is more then 1 prefailing Loyality we get from each and nearly 3 if both count together.

Sorry guys, I just don't have the motivation to continue anymore. I wanted to be there last time, but I was busy. I've had fun, and I still hang out in these forums, so I'll probably show up now and again. but my days of continually showing up are over. sorry.

Don't worry about it; it was good to have you on board. It's also good that you told us outright rather than leaving it hanging.

Yeah, it was fun while it lasted but I fully understand. Originally I thought the Ars Magica run would be a one-campaign thing to aid the Kickstarter, I was actually quite surprised when the plot continued with dragons and what not.

@Freespace thanks for be part with our groups even after the main plot of CJ ended and its good we now know that your no longer with us.

I hope you dont mind if we continue to use your Gustbran as NPC but for Aiden I think he will leave the covenant this winter.

Hullo all, what goes on? I have had a few email problems recently and just found dozens of messages had been filtered incorrectly, and given I am now well but absolutely stressed to hell with Grand Tribunal I'm almost never available. This is lamentable, and even when I think I will be around like last Sunday I was actually in another part of the country. The good news is that Grand Tribunal ends this weekend, and I will be able ot get involved and play again after missing one more session. Sorry I have been horrifically quiet, I really have missed absolutely loads and won't even try and catch up till Tuesday next, but as you must have gathered by now putting together Grand Tribunal is incredibly gruelling.

 

I've missed you guys though, and look forward to getting back and catching up. I'll try and check through my emails tonight but if you sent something urgent and i have note replied please just send it again, just in case.

Ah just saw this. We will be sorry to miss you Freepace - you were amazing as Gustbran, and I have had to take a break for a month now myself, as my writing commitments, work and organising GT just slammed me in to the ground. It was fun to have you and i hope one day you will return -- I never really knew the saga would last so long either, I was originally thinking a couple of sessions, but I am so glad it has! Still you will be missed mate, and you cna always email me on chrisjensenromer@hotmail.com, with a 50% chance I will see it at the moment, and a 50% chance I will reply with things as they are right now, but after Tuesday I'll be back t my unreliable norm, rather than utterly useless as in the last few weeks. Do stay in touch! :D

Me no compute, currently he is able to teach single weapons. His pre is +2 and his leadership is 5. His com is a +1. I can improve some of these things by, for one having someone who knows faerie lore mess around with me thus possible giving me new virtues. Secondly I can spend the stack of xp I have been saving for thing 1.

 

Good having you with us Freespace.

Adrian can play on Saturday as well, so that makes 4 of us with Schwarz, CJ and Free away - that's enough for my council meeting adventure.

 

So usual time on Saturday it is.

Any bether idea to cover +6 Lab totall I miss for a spell invention?

Right now I'm at Addled and Overtime for totall of +6

Double Overtime is bad because of the extra Aging roll so its not realy a opinion.

Good having you Freespace, was hoping you could be in my adventure.

OK I go with the Addled and Overtime and I think the roll Sta 2+1d10 vs 3 can be neglaced as its not saying that it is a stress die roll.

Going from 25 to 26 the char also dont make a aging roll anyway so the living mod from overtime should also be no problem.

I think Nagash had done some Overtime and overslept, so we decided to skip this Saturday and try again next week.

 

We talked about some changes, though: Nyaa said he would prefer if we played at gmt +1, because this would help him get up particularly during them dark, dreary wintermonths. Would this be OK for everyone?

 

Also, we all agreed that it would be good to look for another player from the Atlas forums - that would make us less vulnerable to the unavoidable scenario of people missing sessions unexpectedly. Unless someone disagrees, I'll post an advertisement in a few days.

Sure go on with looking for 1-2 new player. Trough winter time it would be fine for me to go to 13 gmt but trough summer time it might reduce the time I can play to 2h sometimes.

Recruitment posting over at the Atlas Games forum from Wits: http://forum.atlas-games.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=21485

So we will now go with 13gmt instead of 12gmt for the start?

As mentioned trough summertime it might cut the time I can play short.

But anyway thanks for making the recruitment posting and hopefull we find some player.

Ah, I thought you meant summertime as in "summer" as in something that is over already, but you meant daylight savings stuff, right?
