Enchanted Items

The Covenant has a number of magical items in its possession.

Bridge Posts

Created by Eilid of Bjornaer in 1168-1169,
Vis Capacity: 6 pawns each
Vis Used: 6 pawns each

There are two of these items – one on the corner of the dock on Eilean Chon, and one on the shore facing the island. Each post is enchanted with identical effects. These items create a wooden bridge five paces wide and 150 paces long, with wooden railings along each side, which extends from the shore to the dock on the island. Both enchantments are designed so that the post on the opposite end is a part of the bridge - in fact, when the bridge is there, the posts form one of the newels in the railing. The enchantment to create the bridge may be invoked three times a day from each post (six times in all). If not dispelled, the bridge will vanish at sunrise and sunset.
