This is in direct opposition to the notions presented in the random treasure tables, or that monsters are hoarding treasure for the purpose of outfitting the very adventures who killed them.
It's implied that the Titans are actively involved in the function of Erfworld. It's something of a religion, but it's one that perfectly explains certain realities in Erfworld: units pop fully-formed, croaked units disappear, magic.... operates. It's a little confusing how the average units seem to regard the Titans though; they let so many bad things happen.
To me, it's only a small step further to think that the Titans aren't just operating the mechanisms of Erfworld, but controlling them. Think of Erfworld as a game or a program that they're operating for their own entertainment (not a stretch as it's based on a game). If I were a Titan, and I have control over the placement and creation of units as well as the type/flavor of warlords (and as a Titan I do), I would place the type that would be the most entertaining to watch. Especially if I were rooting for a particular side. Otherwise, I'd probably just roll from the random treasure, er, warlord table.

Maybe the bracer treats every question like, "how likely is this to be part of the inevitable progression of events?" Or, "How likely is it that the Titans have decreed that X will happen?"
moose o death wrote:page2 of book2 says the arkentools are what the titans used to build erfworld. i would argue that they must have had hundreds of the things if that were the case, so far they have been useless for actually making anything.
so either the tools are simply high level weapons, or they really did help make erfworld. if that's the case who would need the effects we have seen to construct a world? they must have worked differently for titans or the titans never existed
DevilDan wrote:what is less certain is that they had any contact at all with the Tools. All we have is hearsay on that last bit.

Yes, except that what the pliers do is reanimate existing units, not "creating" them.
