Mancini, I presume you do these investigations prior to going to the guild? Sale price of Cloak and dagger, and type of spell stone? Actually, can magic be used on the spell stone to determine the location of it's caster?

Re: Awards and development
Seems to me it would be sensible at this time to spend a point on Knot-Tying (get off default and finally remember which way the rabbit goes around the tree and which hole he runs back down).  I'll hold the second in reserve for the time being.

That might be beyond the scope of even Analyze Magic, although it could be used to assist use of a seeker spell. There are spells that obscure that...

He was able to make simple evaluation, but the magic items need clarification in order to properly price them.

Question: Could Mancini try summoning Kalima as Wild Talent?  Or would that be too beyond the pale?

Hmm it would be at -4, need 20 fp, could be taken as a long action, and you would need to draw a pentacle and pick five things that would summon her...
A crit success might accidentally summon an avatar of Kali.

Re: Awards and development
That sounds like a last resort sort of thing.  And where would Mancini get 20 fp?  Unless Aoife knows Share Energy and is stronger than she looks...

You can chug four vials of paut in one hour before having HT effects. Aoife seemed to have an idea about an item that would go in that summoning circle... she could become a summonable ally, and those can havevariable availability and cost.

Aoife does not have lend energy, but she does have a power item that could perhaps be borrowed. What items of Kalima's do we still have? Her shawl, which she never wore though it was made for her?

Re: Awards and development
Rules of sympathetic magic probably apply -- similarity and contagion, so, something that resembles her in some way (or ideally something made to specifically have similar appearance, such as a doll with four arms), and something that's connected to her by prior contact or, better, possession.  The strongest connection would be something from her body, like hair, nail clippings, skin dust (as might be found in a worn garment), etc.  Any idea what happened to the little kilt thing she was wearing when we met her, before we got her a broader covering?

Needing five things might make it tricky; we don't know her that well, but likely anything connected to her own family of deities (Kali and company) would be good.  An item made for demon slaying would also tend to attract her, as might actual demon parts (though I'd be concerned those might have a stronger draw for an actual demon).

It was a 9 yard trimmed Sari, not a shawl.

Power items take a day to attenuate and lose their old owner.
 Thaumatology is a good complementary skill (gives a bonus on summoning). Theology-2 also, and AK: Northport to maybe find a representative object.
Ritual Magic (no default, but accessible via wild talent) if successful, would also grant a bonus.
A shard from the banishing stone might help,
A Search of the remains of one of her demons might yield a hair of hers (neither demon had hair, hers is red)

She was sent via Planar Journey by those in her religious organization. They aren't fond of proximate dimensions being overrun, because that leads to echoing events in their world. Presumably that means something Big is stirring.

Between elder things, demon shops and demon cults everywhere, it does garner that feeling. Maybe they will send her back...any way we could suggest it to them? What was her religion organization anyway?

Re: Awards and development
Most of the temples for human religions that aren't one of the major Aralaise, Sahudese, or Shevnian varieties are on the border between Artisan and Redlight, as I recall.  The bigger names are on Temple Hill, for the most part.

There are starting to be temporary stalls along the road toward the gate that passes temple hill,  where religios articles and  idols are being hawked.

You might be surprised at what things the Sahudese bring to market. Some of them worship not the celestial kingdom, but the nine million gods. Others are animists, and some worship the Ascended one, who in turn worshipped some of the nine million gods, which his worshippers consider the ceslestial kingdom to be part of...

Are any of those nine million 'gods' demonic?

Dep3nds on who you ask. Some probably are, but at least in the hierarchy of the Celestial Kingdom,  they hold beaurocratic positions in Hell that keep things flowing smoothly. Plenty of the sub faiths claim everyone else does, and the Valdassyan  Servants of the Prophet, and the Triunists claim that every power except for their god is a demon. The scholars of the Mosaic Diaspora say likewise, and do not even name their deity.

Re: Awards and development
Master Albrecht followed the Ascended Lord, and Master Rethki, an elf, was what most humans would call an animist -- he worshiped nature spirits, several of them.

I was raised Vejovist, but my parents weren't strict or particularly devout, and today I'd call myself closer to Master Albrecht's view, at least informally -- though I'd surely make an offering to Vejovis if I could find them, or even know for certain what happened to them.

I guess what I am wondering is if this market should be checked out for a demonic shop...

Or a newly erected or temporary shrine to some subset of the nine million.  Those would be the ones who might have brought Kalima here in the first place, right?
