Abilities

  • No harmful effects.

  • Maggie protected herself from the backlash.
  • Jack Snipe was driven insane until his name was spoken by Jillian.
  • Misty croaked.

[edit] Thinkamancer/Croakamancer/Dirtamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

Circumstances of Dissolution

  • Unraveled by five Thinkamancers, at least one master-class.
  • No negative effects.


[edit] Thinkamancer/Dirtamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • Upgrading a City with better results than by a Dirtamancer alone.[1]

Circumstances of Dissolution

  • Presumably dissolved by Maggie with no danger.


[edit] Thinkamancer/Foolamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • Investigated the Eyebooks for security holes, made security improvements, and upgraded them to become able to project 3D Foolamancy.


[edit] Carnymancer+Arkendish/Turnamancer

Casters involved

  • Charlie
  • Vanna
  • It is not certain whether Carnymancy or Thinkamancy was actually involved in this particular link, due to the Arkendish. But since this particular spell impacted the rules of Erfworld (as Carnymancy is 'the art of rigging the game'), it is very likely that Charlie provided his own discipline in addition to the Thinkamancy granted by the Arkendish.

Abilities

  • The first ranged link-up shown in canon — i.e. it doesn't require physical contact between casters — most likely due to the power of the Arkendish. It placed severe mental strain on Charlie, making him unable to broadcast to other Archons during the link. He did manage to send a terse thinkagram to King Slately, which risked breaking the link.
  • Forcing a side to end their turn early. This was a surprise to both Jetstone and Gobwin Knob, so it's unlikely regular Turnamancy can do this, even with a master-class caster.
  • Vanna states that the spell cost two turns' worth of juice; unless casters can "hold over" juice from preceding turns, this implies that Charlie shared some of the juice cost. This may or may not be a normal function of a caster link. Alternatively, it may mean that it used up juice while it was still Gobwin Knob's turn and left Vanna drained even after the Royal Coalition's turn began.

Circumstances of Dissolution

[edit] Thinkamancer/Date-a-mancer/Hat Magician

Casters involved

  • unknown

Abilities


[edit] Thinkamancer/Thinkamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • A pair of linked Thinkamancers standing in different nodes of amplification can send and detect G-string vibrations far better than a single caster. Notably, it is easily possible for a single caster to achieve the same effect just by oscillating between the different nodes themself, since the trick works in the first place by giving the Thinkamancer more perspective.


[edit] Thinkamancer/Florist/Turnamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • Creation of the initial Heroine buds. The buds appear to be fertile, so future production did not require a link.


[edit] Thinkamancer/Croakamancer/Turnamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • Ability to create a box of tricks, a Magic Item that can be used for all sorts of creative torture on a captive in order to interrogate or turn them.


[edit] Thinkamancer/Croakamancer/Dirtamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • Inspired the creation of memorial stones.


[edit] Carnymancer+Arkendish/Florist/?

Casters involved

  • Charlie
  • Olive Branch
  • The Thinkamancy was provided by the Arkendish. There may have also been multiple linkups with casters from other disciplines involved, since the very focus of their research was in how to emulate other disciplines, and the Arkendish allowed for safe two-caster linkups without a Thinkamancer.

Abilities

[edit] Carnymancer+Arkendish/Signamancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • Created a powerful contract called a "Deal of a Lifetime". This contract is unbreakable for both parties by anything save croaking. Faq was bound to protect Charlie's secrets, while Charlie was bound to keep Faq's existence a secret and never attack them. Even speaking of Charlie's secrets in vague ways carries a physical penalty. Nevertheless, after Jack's decryption, he was able to spill the beans.

[edit] Carnymancer+Arkendish/Healomancer

Casters involved

Abilities

  • Was able to keep Wanda alive from the effects of the heroine buds.
  • Was able to reduce Jillian's dependency on the heroine buds.
  • Was able to destroy a fragment of Jillian's personality, the jester, and rearrange her mind.

[edit] Thinkamancer/Dollamancer/Lookamancer

Casters involved

  • Maggie
  • Ace Hardware
  • Isaac Cipher
  • Notably, this is the first linkup shown to have a caster use a discipline other than his native. Isaac, a master-class Thinkamancer and Lookamancer provided the Lookamancy. Nevertheless, despite his mastery of Thinkamancy, Maggie was needed to facilitate the link.
