Line 13: Line 13:
Does not appear to be used outside the Magic Kingdom.
Rands may be used as a way to limit the power of [[Moneymancy|Moneymancers]] in the Magic Kingdom by existing outside their sphere of influence, but this will not be able to be confirmed until more is known about them.

The Rand is a unit of currency used in the Magic Kingdom. It is not a physical coin or treasure, but a barter credit. Casters in the Magic Kingdom can offer their services or created scrolls to other casters in exchange for Shmuckers, but more often it is done for Rands.

Proposed Canon


List of values in Rands used in the comic:

  • Sizemore promised Janis 8 Rands for teaching him Hippiemancy, and gave her twenty. The twenty seemed to be intended as an especially generous gift, because he didn't expect to survive.Erf-b1-p011Same-site.PNG
  • Janis promised any Master-class Thinkamancers 50 Rands each for unraveling the Maggie-Wanda-Sizemore. Thinkmancers did unravel the link but declined the reward. Erf-b1-p140Same-site.PNG


Real-World References

  • Possible reference to Ayn Rand. If so, this might be a sign that the Magic Kingdom operates under meritocratic principles.
  • May also be a reference to the real-world currency of the same name.
  • Could also be tied into a Janice Rand[1] (from Star Trek) reference, since the first use of the currency was when Sizemore paid Janis for hippiemancy lessons.
  • May also be a reference to the leading character of Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series, Rand[2]al'Thor.
  • May be a reference to Rand Holmes[3], an underground comic book artist who lived on Lasqueti Island (notable as a counterculture enclave) and who designed a cannabis-themed currency[4] ($10 Canadian) for the island.
