True, but that's aiming awfully high. I would never expect a mere magic item to be as good as a caster. An easier target to hit would be for a Croakamancy item to not be an impediment to Croakamancy.drachefly wrote:Shai-hulud has already addressed how this can be consistent by noting that just because something was made with Croakamancy doesn't mean that it is as good as being a croakamancer.
If we didn't suspect that Wanda was involved in creating the box, we'd never have guessed that Croakamancy was involved in it. It's clearly a Turnamancy item, perhaps with some Foolamancy and Thinkamancy or other various disciplines, but Croakamancy would be among Predictamancy and Retconjuration in the category of least likely disciplines to be involved in making the box. On top of that, just when Wanda was talking about making the box she says that she's more than just a Croakamancer; she's whatever she needs to be. So I suggest that maybe Wanda wasn't using Croakamancy when she helped make the box. It's one of the last disciplines I'd guess she'd used.
