[WARDED TO THE MARAUDERS & LILY]
An update for the inquiring minds:
1. I have had no less than 4 MiniPadfoot sightings. That dog continues to be a menace.
2. I have made good progress on setting parameters for the spell work to track physical state. So far I have terms set for: home, at work, school, in transit, garden (because those gnomes are vicious), sleep. I am still working to define a "lost" and maybe even a "mortal peril" although so much variation.
What I am still getting stuck on is the part of imbuing a likeness into an object. Obviously my attempt with the wolf was an utter failure, but we have to be on the right track.
3. If anyone is coming by the flat, I accept any and all offerings of food.
