The head of the covenant is the autocratic Antonius of Guernicus, who has a lab in the Temple.

 

Unassigned to specific Lab Slots so fare Aiden ex Merinita, Amaranth ex Tremere

 

The magi never invited apprentices to visit other towers, and Baruch alone has been in all four as a guest, and fairly briefly in some cases.

 

Each tower has three labs, and the palace a single lab.

Aiden can choose betwean Tower of Burnished Brass and Tower of Flaming Passions for his Lab

Amaranth also have the Tower of Secreth Philosophy open but if Aiden take the Tower of Burnished Brass this tower is full when he is allowed to set up his lab.

Makara probably won't mind loaning out his lab if you are trustworthy enough.

Honestly, I think Amaranth would be too much 'YAY I GOT A LAB FINALLY' to really care about which tower she gets put in. She'll take Flaming Passions if necessary, because I seem to remember no one else really wanted it. Either of the other two towers would be fine, though. Burnished Brass sort of makes sense as she's living there.

Oh yeah, CJ still haven't told us what the Herbam book and Flambleu cult book we loot from Libelus are.

Put a bit more variance in the four 20-21 point summa.

Especial the Perdo Summa is interesting as it contain the promise that there is much bether to Study version out there and give Antonius a bit more colour.

 

Also added the Herbam summa from Libelus after Wits and I agreed about its values.

 

Removed the posting below to avoid triple posting

 

Mikka as mentioned you can choose betwean Tower of Secret Philosophy (The lab of Class is empty by the time you alowed to set up your lab) , Tower of Flaming Passions and depending on Aidens pick even Tower of Burnished Brass

And Antonius special mentioned your allowed to pick betwean the free labs.

I forgot where I got this, but did we make an exchange at some point for a finesse book, and which did we trade? (and when did we ^^ ) Thanks

Added our new finesse book and changed the Bookbinder and the Percamenarius as a Bookbinder wo don't know this proffession he is named after is strange but the Percamenarius haved it.

So now the Percamenarius is more for the writing and drawing and the Bookbinder is just that a good bookbinder.

I need to redo the Wealth at some point because of this but we have to age this NPCs bevore (if they dont get replaced by a player or other NPC).
