Okay, DevilDan, that's all I was looking for. I just didn't want to have to approach this from a direction I didn't have to.
Shockmancy has the root word Shock. Now, a lot of people jump on that and say, "It needs to be electrical," but, I think a lot of people forget the other definition of shock.
Dictionary.com, shock wrote:1. a sudden and violent blow or impact; collision.
You've heard it before... "The shock of the impact ran up his his arm." (BTW, 6. is electrical.)
In 126, we see what should be a Shockmancy scroll create an effect that creates a blow or collision that knocks its targets down. It is yellow,and you don't think that might be electrical, but it doesn't have to be. This establishes that Shockmancy receives its name in the same way that other known Discplines do...
Croakamancy -- involves the croaked.
Dirtamancy -- involves dirt
Thinkamancy -- involves the mind (thinking)
Lookamancy -- looks at places remotely
Foolamancy -- fools you
Moneymancy -- deals with money (known to convert shmuckers into gems, for those not reading the Wiki)
Flower Power -- produces psychedelic flowers (page 11)
Dollamancy -- produces moving dolls (scarecrow)
The known Disciplines so far do not get their names subtly. There is obvious connections between the name of the Discipline and the effect. We have a Shockmancy scroll and a shocking effect... not electrically shocking, but it meets the strict definition. That establishes that an effect that shocks is reasonably believed to be a Shockmancy effect. Since the effect in 126 shocks its targets, it fits the trend of the other Disciplines in directly matching name to effect.
Now, consider page 113. Does the effect there fit the definition of shock? The 1. definition, that is, not 6. electrical shock, because people don't want Shockmancy to cover multiple definitions of shock. (I'm a lot looser in my definition like Maldeus, thinking that Shockmancy might also include mental shock effects. Low probability for me, though. I would expect that on a Fate axis, with Thinkamancy, a known mental effect Disc. But, hey, if I can satisfy those wanting a singular definition...) The effect appears to be electrical, but there's something a lot of people miss. Electrical shock doesn't cause knockback like this, except in movies, comics, and cartoons. (You should have learned that in G12 High School physics.) If someone is thrown because of electrical shock, it is because the electricity causes their muscles to fire somewhat randomly and the person jumps/jerks uncontrollably. (Grabbing a live wire can cause you to be unable to release your grip killing you, so never grab an electrical wire. EVER!) Electricity has insufficient momentum to cause someone to get blown back (unless it's powerful enough to create a plasma). So, why does Caesar get thrown back? The bats might be thrown by their own muscles, but Caesar flies by thought, not muscle. But back he goes, just like the bats. So he is thrown back by impact or collision (not electricity), and that makes this Shockmancy by the same definition used on page 126. The electrical aspect of the attack is not necessary to make this Shockmancy.
Others suggest it is something else.
Deletionism -- Caesar isn't deleted, but is clearly injured after the fight. Injuring isn't deleting. (The dwagons on 69 come a lot closer to being deleted...) It's called Deletionism, not Hurtamancy.
Dittomancy -- I don't know how people are getting to this one, but since Ditto means repeating an action a second time, and we see Stanley use the Lightning effect three times in three places with no one to copy, I doubt we're looking at this one. Someone might have a creative def'n of Ditto to use, but I'd just point at the Disc def'n trend and shrug.
Carnymancy -- A Carny runs booths at a Carnival: not really this sort of thing. If you're taking Carny to be short for carnival, carnivals are about performing acts, for the most part. Tamed Lions. Dogs through hoops. Clowns. Trapeze acts. I understand people want it to be "flashy" magic, but that bucks the trend of magics associating directly to the name of the Discipline, making it highly speculative. It's not "Showoffamancy" or "Impressiveism". There needs to be an obvious tie to Carny or Carnival, and lightning from a hammer to a target just doesn't make that obvious connection to me.
Weirdomancy -- Interesting idea, but the problem is that each effect in Weirdomancy must be weird, not the collection of effects overall. If a spell fits a particular Discipline, it will be that Discipline. Two of the three effects (changing birds into walnuts and Shockmancy) are explained by other Disciplines, so they themselves are not Weirdomancy. Not sure where flying upward would fit, though. That might be Weirdomancy, but I don't think it's weird enough to justify that name for the Disc. More like "Nearlyuselessamancy".
I could go on, but that's enough to answer why I put it there. (I believe you're talking about the Arkentool page. Ironically, with all of the Spec on the Arkenhammer tool page, it's just spec there.) The Shockmancy connection is strong, a lot stronger than some people may have thought.
Frankly, the concept of an "associated discipline" is Speculation in and of itself. We know that the Dish gives Charlie certain ability, but the Pliers merely make Wanda better at what she was already a master of. Plus, that effect only creates the associated unit to the Pliers. Charlie gets a Disc and a Unit, where Wanda only gets a Unit. Stanley gets a Unit, and maybe only a specific spell, with no Discipline at all. Were we to get pedantic on this, I'd wipe out that entire table as Speculative. Someone else created it and put it on there. Heck, no one even speculated that the electrical attack was shock at all, when it is clearly the strongest and most direct association of any effect anywhere. It is
shocking, and we're looking at Shockmancy.
And, of course, there's another possibility... it is not the Tool that is associated with the Discipline, but the attuned user. Wanda didn't care which Arkentool she attuned to, because she knew it would enhance her Croakamancy. If she had known the Pliers associated with Croakamancy, she wouldn't have sought the Arkenhammer. So, it's not that teh Arkenhammer confers Shockmancy to Stanley, it's that Stanley, were he a Caster and not a Warlord, would have been a Shockmancer.
Just a couple things to finish with that should make you think. Casting doubt on the entire thing.
