I notice that when a Carnymancer is trying to convince someone, they like to touch people.
in the last few update with Dove, I've notice she likes to touch/rub.
That is actually a common psychiatrist/conman trick in our real world. It fools the brain into being more receptive to what is being said. So, in Erfworld, that would probably be referred to as Natural Carnymancy.
I agree but if it's a conman trick, adding juice would make it even better.
i was just re-reading the last update.. had a bit of time to kill
Dove patted Digdoug’s thigh and gave him a look that was somehow both serious and joyful. “Your King is a beautiful man,” she said, “with a beautiful story. He respects my discipline, and yours, too. You know how rare that is? I hope you do.” Digdoug blinked at her, and nodded. “Yeah, I’m here to get paid. You always get paid; that’s a code of Carnymancy. But my intentions are good. If you don’t believe anything else I tell you, believe that. I’m here to help you.”
Digdoug believed it. More than anything else, he just hoped she would stick around for a while. Having a caster friend was all kinds of nice. “Would you ever...want to join us? Join Homekey?” he asked.
Dove touch Digdoug, tells something, and Digdoug believes it
