SIRRAH, I will fight... NAY... FIGHT your debased theories TOOTH AND NAIL. No sane human can conclude anything other than that JILLIAN is the ONE TRUE TITAN and that her DEVOUT and ENTIRELY NON-PLATONIC WOMAN-VERSION OF BROMANCE for MAGGIE (as played IRL by Asha) gave RISE to all of Erfworld out of the fabric of TERRYCLOTH. To those confused as to whether I or my wiki nemesis mutilis has more RIGHTNESS in this matter, consider how many more EXTRANEOUS capital letters I use in lieu of CITATIONS. I will accept your apology, mutilis.
IF YOU CAN EVEN BE FORGIVEN. It remains to be seen.
More seriously, kudos to you Wikipedians that fight the good fight. I sympathize with Kriestor's sentiment that wiki's are no place for speculation unless it is labeled as such. I'd like to think that polite discourse could resolve the differences of opinion, but, in lieu of that, a surging screaming mess of histrionics seems to get the job done too... at least in a time averaged sense.
That said, this forum is no wiki. We really should be speculating up a storm right now. We've been given a new ball to play with, so now is the time to see who can throw it the farthest in the greatest tradition of forum speculation. Personally I'm stumped as to the implications of the arkenshoes. My best guess of the powers is the same as other people's guesses... imbuing life into that which formerly only had motion and matter (e.g. living dollamancy golems). However, giving life to the lifeless is strikingly like the pliers' power (as wielded by Wanda)... which is only striking because the other two tools seem to have very little to do with one another. This really does beg the question of whether the tool or the user determines the powers conferred. Yes the pliers seem linked to undead, but to be fair, Ansom seems like the kind of guy who would really want to be able to smite undead.
Also, we haven't had any confirmation that Barton/Maxwell were using the shoes when they made the golems.
Unrelated question... did we ever figure out who was in charge of Haffaton before Judy? Did they seize the side from Charlie? Has anyone speculated much that Charlie and Maxwell are the same person? All we know is that Olive "eliminated" him by denying him the way back when he was exploring thinkamancy through hippymancy. Maybe he transcended his mortal remains and is just out in the ether now? That would explain a lot. The big flaw in this being that Charlie (or someone similar) was in charge of Efbaum before Judy gave him the boot, and, if it was him, that he was clearly still working with Olive when his "accident" happened... well, that and the idea is crazybeans
