Talisman
Her Talisman is a 7½ foot long staff made of rough wood; while not gnarly and bent, it is not perfectly straight, and it is obvious that it was not made by a carpenter. It has been partially opened (8 pawns) and attuned, and has the following Enchantments:

  • A variant of The Unseen Porter (1p). Rego Terram (with Animal, Corpus, Herbam, and Vim Requisites) base 3, R: Touch +1, D: Concentration +1, T: Individual, final Spell Level 5. Usable 6 times a day +3. Final Enchantment Level 8. Enchanted Spring 1229.
  • Accio Talisman (2p), which allows Fiona to summon the talisman to her hand; it does not teleport, but rather flies to her. Rego Herbam, base 5, R: Personal, D: Momentary, T: Individual; final effect level 5. Unlimited Uses +10, only usable by Fiona +3; final enchantment level 18. Enchanted Summer 1229.
  • Repel the Wooden Shafts (2p), straight from the book (p. 138). Rego Herbam Level 10 effect, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Individual. Usable 24 times a day (+5), for an Enchantment Level of 15.

Attunements: +3 Corpus (from mercury; when attuned)
