Kreistor, all I'm trying to say is that a unit can have high Loyalty and act as such (not being able to disobey direct orders, etc) without being subject to a Loyalty spell. Instead of assuming that certain evidence means that Wanda is under a loyalty spell or that Stanley assumed she was, the a simpler explanation is that Stanley assumed that Wanda had a high Loyalty and Duty to him and she never contradicted that belief. If I was unclear, I apologize.

Emotion, society, morality, conscience - these are "Natural Thinkamancy."
Buying stuff, paying bills? "Natural Moneymancy."
Erfquake? "Natural Dirtamancy."
Huh. I'd never thought of that in quite those terms. It's essentially people describing the events and world around them through terms and systems they know. Just like how the Ancient Greeks understood the world around them through their gods and the four elements
. The people of Erfworld know about stats and magic classes and disciplines, so that's how they explain even the things that don't obviously have those.
Everything in Erfworld is controlled by stats. X is something in Erfworld. Therefore, X must have a stat.
