Relatively new to the forum, so forgive me if there is an old thread about this, but I'm not looking through 25 pages of threads, and "caster" and "speculation" are too common of words to search.
I was going back rereading some of book 2, and this time I took a closer look at some of the background casters in the Magic Kingdom. All of them are visual references to popular culture, some recognizable, some obscure. But given the way Erfworld works, their appearance is directly tied into their discipline. So this thread is to have fun speculating not on who these characters are, but what their discipline could be based upon what we know about the character they are based on.
For example, in this update http://www.erfworld.com/book-2-archive/?px=%2F2011-03-31.png
it looks like Cinderella's Fairy Godmother is walking with Jafar from Alladin. Most of the Fairy Godmother's magic came in the form of transformations, so I'd say she's either a Change-a-mancer, or a Foolamancer. Jafar is tougher, because his role in his films were much more about scheming than his actual magic. But Jafar spent a lot of time hunting for the cave of wonders, and then used a device to find the so called "diamond in the rough." Lookamancer is a possibility. His hypnosis could point to thinkamancy, but he isn't shown in the gathering of Thinkamancers, so I'm discounting it.
So what do you got?
Take a look at this page, third panel. I'm especially interested in Mary Poppins and the Red Spy from Team Fortress 2.http://www.erfworld.com/book-2-archive/ ... -07-16.jpg
