A magus may always spend a season in the laboratory extracting Vim vis from the covenant's Magic aura. This is a Creo Vim lab activity, that results in a number of pawns of Vim vis equal to (CrVi lab total / 10), rounded up

Uncontested Sources

  • Undiscovered source, 3 pawns/year
  • Undiscovered source, 4 pawns/year
  • Corpus source, 5 pawns/year
On Tresco in an ancient burial mound is the skeleton of a king or other important ruler on a throne. Although quite dead, his teeth continually grow and drop into his lap. If collected early enough, this is a source of Corpus vis. If allowed to "rot", as it were, this vis will fade until only a decayed tooth is left.
