All council decisions are recorded here by year.


The covenant charter defines several membership levels and officers. The membership levels are: Senior Member, Junior Member, Probationary Member, and Recognized Guest. The covenant leader is the Princeps, and rotates among the Senior Members. The Princeps cannot make unilateral decisions, but is charged with overseeing the implementation of the Council's decisions. The disceptator may cast an additional tie-breaking vote in Council meetings.

Outstanding Issues

The following are issues pending the Council's decision. Your autocrat offers her take to each as well. These are in no particular order, so read carefully!

Magister Requests

These are incoming issues appealed to the Magister.

Request Cost Requester Autocrat's Notes
Answer to the Bishop of St. Asaph's charges: Violations of Canonical Law; Tithing Violations; Lateran Council Violations Regarding Jews TBD The Dean of Marchia, on behalf of Bishop of St. Asaph The bishop has expressed extreme distaste at dealing with the Council's assigned autocrat and has already attempted an end-run by going to Sir William. Jusef has petitioned Sir William to redirect the bishop to the Magister. Additionally, it is Jusef's opinion that the appointment of a priest of the Council's selection to the vacant chapel has angered the bishop, resulting in a revocation of the tithing agreement, and charges of violations on behavior of the covenant's Jews.

Visitor Requests

These are incoming magus visitor requests that have been delivered to the Magister.
