Background: Florenzo is the youngest of the three sons of Rodrigo, and the only one to inherit his Gentle Gift. His parens was an elder member of the covenant named Louis (now passed). Florenzo has studied at Cordoba, Bologna, and other universities. He began his academic education first, and did not begin his Hermetic studies until he was 15. He was gauntleted at 30. He has studied in Cordova, Barcelona, and Bologna. His obsession with books has been a great boon to the covenant of Andorra. He is a new member of Literatius in Barcelona now and is also a member of the Quill of the Eye League based there, a Jerbiton league dedicated to the literary arts. Nonetheless, he is always an honored guest at Andorra

For this character, I am demonstrating how to cheep out. I am just taking the easy way and developing him 40 xp’s per year, minus a number of seasons for Lab activities and etceteras. I am spending xp’s first, and doing lab work last. So, for 20 years development, taking a season out at year 5 to make a longevity potion, and then taking out 19 more seasons at the end to do stuff, that makes 15 years x 40xp for a total of 600. Plus 45 for early childhood, 10 years x 15xps (=150) for age until apprenticeship, +240 for base apprenticeship, +210 for his various Virtues; equals a Grand Total of 1245 experience points. For starting Arts and Spells, I made sure I could take any combination at 15, and CrCo at 20 so I could do a longevity potion. My first 150 levels of spells were all level 15 or less (Int +2, Aura 3+, Magic theory 4, All Techniques 5, All Forms 1, Corpus 6). I then spent the rest of the experience, then applied nineteen seasons in the lab as follows (I took 2xp per season exposure in Magic Theory or an appropriate Art each season)
