Because the only way Erflings would know WHAT it does is from experience of Haffaton, they lost that knowledge of it when Haffaton is Retconned. But because the 'Tools are so important to Erfworld as a whole, Erflings would have knowledge of it's existence from sources other than Haffaton.
This way, Erflings are left with knowledge of the fact that a 4th 'Tool exists...but no idea of what it is or does.
0beron wrote:No, it could be universally known simply that there are 4 'Tools. This may be in the "religious texts" that pop in city libraries, or ingrained knowledge in all units, and this knowledge would have nothing to do with anyone witnessing a 'Tool being used.
As for the lack of inquisitiveness about it, this could be unrelated to the Retconjuration. An artifact keyed to Signamancy could conceal it's purpose by changing it's appearance, or somehow "discourage" inquiry about it. Signamancy has been rather broadly defined as essentially governing the idea of "form = function". If you make your form something that should be ignored...you are ignored.
