Hahaha wow, i have to say i never would have thought of this, but it would add another layer of weirdness onto the story =P I'm defiantly a fan of this view.

Eh i dont know how i feel about this idea, the Arkentools were originally used by the Titans of Erf to create the world. The world they created was one based on perpetual warfare between opposing sides. To that end, the Arkentools revealed thus far all have some kind of battle related function [Arkenpliers make decrypted armies, Arkenhammer tames Dwagons, and Arkendish allows for unmatched communications and surveillance.] To have the last Arkentool be something that goes so directly against the world the titans have created would be definitely odd. I suppose hippiemancy does provide a basis for this idea, but what would the result of such an Arkentool be if it was used? Everyone on either side of a battle just decides they dont feel like fighting anymore? that would be very counterintuitive to an erfworlder. Janis might like it, but from a storytelling perspective it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense.
