'Tool' was a bloody big one, though. His joke started the whole ideological upset that erfworlders are fighting wars over right now. Some 70 turns later, freshly decrypted Ossomer's idea of his new side's warcry is an excerpt from Parson's taunts towards Ansom.
I'm liking your signamancer theory, especially considering it's a form of hippymancy (isn't it still? that stuff gets changed around now and then). Of course, we have yet to see what a Signamancer does
, other than interpret people's appearances better than Slately does.

He named a bunch of streets in Gobwin Knob, to no effect so far. Petnames seem like they could be a thing of his, though.
Now that he's traveling out every day conquering dwagons, will he start to get taller, or does that not count as active fighting? (if it does count as fighting, then does he gain XP for every dwagon he tames?)
Good question. It's not as unlikely as it sounds at first sight that taming a dwagon somehow counts as defeating it - certainly some RPGs give you xp for defeating enemies by mindcontrolling them.
Don't think he'll get taller, though. That one seems linked to self-confidence, if anything.
