Maldeus wrote:Indeed, Kreistor, the fact that the Gobwins were not wiped out after their betrayal of King Saline, but instead defected back to Stanley's Side, is only further evidence that the hammer had some sort of effect on them. Of course, it's possible that the Gobwins were, in fact, wiped out, and that Stanley just popped more, but the Gobwins are natural allies, not Plaid Units. Can Stanley do that?

However he has got a lot of interest in other sides of erfworld 'magic' but cannot do them. Who is to say the shovel he holds is not the arkentool? And i know the CGI effect usually applies to the tool... Wild theories abound..
Maldeus wrote:Also, Sizemore with the ArkenShovel is considered the most likely fourth Arkentool. Evidently one of the earliest patents for a shovel went to someone named Sizemore.

Beholden wrote:Just had a quick thought along the arkentools. Recently been reading Garth Nix's Keys to the Kingdom series. I can see a few parellels to it in regards to "tools" left behind by the creator of the world. In the series the "tools" are left behind in the care of a trustee until an heir claims them and they "attune" and change shape to that persons style.
Now using this and the idea "one ring to rule them" vis-a-vis LotR, could Parson possibly be destined to attune to a master or tool that boosts all magics? I'd like to think of him with an attuned swiss army knife or Multitool leatherman good for all occasions and magics. This is partly due to the magics of erfworld he seems to be dabbling in which to him seems normal (to him saying good luck = to them luckamancy, Doing stuff out of turn= turnamancy, Calculating stuff= Mathamancy). A multitool would allow him to do so much more multiclassing.
