Judy can't be from Stupidworld. She if she was she would have a big fat WTFHAXXS! sign hanging from her in the form of no visible points.

Healomancy and Signamancy don't strike me as arkentool-level disciplines, and the other three Fate disciplines have either been given pretty strong limitations, or no treatment at all. (changeamancy)
Predictamancy has pretty strong limits. Of course, knowing all possible fates would help.
Dollamancy though? That doesn't have very strong limits. Especially compared to something like croakamancy. Even if it could only do what a dollamancer does... unlimited juice
. "Oh hai, that's a cute army. Say high to ten thousand golems, all decked out in top tier magical equipment that infuses them with countless abilities. Also mass goelm heal
." And then of course, the arkentool could do things previously out of the reach of any dollamancer. I'm guessing manufacture artifacts.
Nor is healomancy that weak for an arkentool. One word: Resurrection. That would make decryption look downright reasonable.
Also I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be too hard to come up with arkentool level signamancy. How about anything you draw becomes real? Or just change all the signamancy of the world. For example, make all the units of one side see the rest of the units as enemies. Army kills itself.

It's just likely surrounded by difficult terrain, and anyone knows it'd be suicide to attack given the power of Archons. But I doubt the city itself is anything special, structurally speaking.
We know its heavily trapped. Plus if archons have dollamancy they should be able to fabricate, which means they can make stuff by hand. I would be surprised if Charlie hasn't heavily fortified his city. At least he probably has ballistic engines for each of his 700ish (IIRC) golems who have been training for titans know how long.
