Power in Numbers: More about Covenants
The covenant is the home of magi and the heart of an Ars Magica saga. The right covenant provides a place for magi to hone their skills, rest their heads, and break bread with their fellow magi.
This supplement provides detailed information about covenants to serve as a home base for adventure and plot. Or bring a tale of internal strife to your table, pitting magus against magus for control of their home and livelihood.
In this expansion, you'll find detailed information on the magical resources a covenant provides, as well as story ideas and conflict generators. A story set in a covenant in the grips of anarchy, funded by money lenders of a somewhat dubious nature would be very different from a game set in a small democratic covenant with an extensive library that runs a charity school for the poor. Or set the two covenants at odds.
Build a home sweet magical home to suit any magus with this Covenants expansion.
