Wanda may have attuned instantly because she's using the pliers for Croakamancy. It might take her much longer to discover whatever other capabilities the pliers have. Judy needed turns to attune to the Arkenshoes, but maybe a Turnamancer would have attuned instantly.wih wrote:Maybe Wanda is the special case.

It's curious terminology. She's a Sylvia is a former Royal, but clearly not a princess. She wasn't what I would call personally royal, but was a member of a royal side, which is apparently enough to call a person "Royal" in Erfworld.GWvsJohn wrote:I'm pretty sure she's Royal.
Stanley is an Overlord and a Toolist, the leader of the most powerful counter-royal side, so naturally he wouldn't self-identify as Royal, but I expect his feelings about royalty in Book 2 are quite different from what they were when he was serving under Saline IV. It's not clear how Stanley would have self-identified back then. Don't forget that by the time we see Sylvia self-identifying she's actually self-identifying as former Royal, meaning that people who self-identify as Royal can stop self-identifying as Royal.GWvsJohn wrote:Sylvia self-identifies as Royal. Stanley does not. Stanley is explicitly non-Royal.

If Charlie were a king that would make Olive a queen, but she's called an Overlady. I haven't been able to find any place where Charlie is called Overlord, but I'm sure he's never called King either.MadZuri wrote:Do we have evidence that Blair, Bell, or Charlie aren't Royal?
