Falls are treated as natural shockmancy. You can be injured, incapacitated, or croaked as a result of a fall (distance fallen has an effect on this). When not directed by a caster, tower defense spells consist of Shockamancy. LIAB Text 43 Damaging weather effects also count as natural shockamancy, though they are also within the purview of dirtamancers to control.

[edit] Real World References

When casting the SpellErf-b1-p126Same-site.PNG Sizemore mentions names of well known pictures or videos on the Internet, which are disturbing for viewers, and difficult to get out of one's head; colloquially, these pages are known as shock sites. NSFW sound effect is an abbreviation for Not Safe for Work, which would certainly apply to shock sites in general. 4Chan sound effect as a secondary sound effect accompanying the explosion is an image site well known its "execrable" standards as well as for posting and producing shock images.

The "Flash mob" ability used by the Archons is a double-entendre of Real World references. The term refers to any group of people who assemble suddenly in a single location to perform some action, as a group of Archons did over Expository Bridge. Once assembled, the Archons "flashed" (i.e. exposed parts of their bodies to) the forces of Jetstone to stun them into not noticing the casting of a veil in the adjacent hex. Thus the tactic was both a flash mob and a mob that flashed. The effect of stunning a target could also be a reference to a "flash-bang" grenade which is used by law enforcement and military to blind, disorient, and stun opponents.
