« Back to Loose Ends

After a season of study each by Veloxia and Magni, they have discovered the following notes in Julissa's journal, that ends in 1218 shortly before she went missing.

Studying the journal for a season counts as either an Organization Lore: Order of Hermes or Magic Lore tractatus Q11 (choose when read); can only be read once for benefit

Regarding Maribus:

  • Julissa knew of Maribus heading into Wales to investigate
  • Disappeared after taking his boat up to Lake Vyrnwy
  • Doesn’t believe Maribus’ disappearance is related to Justen and Aislinn’s

Julissa's Conspiracy Theory:

  • Over 20-year periods, noted attacks largely in Levant, but also in Roman, Novgorod Tribunals; all Tribunals at the edges of the Order
  • Specific incidents are not named although they are referenced with odd notations (Julissa's shorthand)
  • Believes Justen had noticed this pattern early and went to investigate to the far east; Aislinn’s notes may have additional information (Julissa didn't have this)
  • Points to several other book sources from which Julissa did her research; these books have since been returned to their respective owners (see list below)
  • Julissa believes there is a conspiracy to overthrow the Order of Hermes from a foreign group or coalition of hedge wizards
  • She writes that none of her suspicions is taken seriously by any in the Tribunal or even more broadly by Hoplites or Quaesitores
  • This foreign group operates beyond the boundaries currently covered by the Order; she suspects outside either the Levant or Novgorod Tribunal
  • She notes a number of suspicious, seemingly disconnected attacks at the Order’s eastern and southern periphery

Additional notes can be unlocked once the supplemental books listed below have been obtained.

Books referenced:

  • Novogord Tribunal Records of 1200, 1207, 1214
  • Theban Tribunal Records of 1207
  • Levant Tribunal Records of 1200, 1207, 1214
  • Roman Tribunal Records of 1200

Additionally, she became paranoid about being tracked. She has sent her notes away to various other magi for safe keeping, though she doesn't name them. They all are referenced by her personal connection or a personality quirk.

  • Letters between Julissa and magi of Novgorod (sent to: ?)
  • Letters between Julissa and magi of Thebes (sent to: ?)
  • Letters between Julissa and magi of Levant (sent to: ?)
  • Letters between Julissa and magi of Rome (sent to: ?)
