Selexor wrote:You sure you got the right comic there? This is Book Two, Page 20. You can't even see her feet in panel 7. You can, however, clearly see them in Panels 4 and 6, and her shoes are plain and grey and don't have the Arkentools' otherworldly (read: 3D) appearance at all.
It'd be a fun tinfoil hat theory if she DID have them, but she's clearly not wearing them there. And it wouldn't make much sense for a lot of what her character is doing if she did own them, either.
Selexor wrote:As for the shoes becoming different articles of clothing, it's an interesting idea, but changing from shoes to coat and/or hat... that'd be Dollamancy, or possibly Foolamancy, rather than Signamancy. Which isn't to say the shoes can't do it, but yeah, doesn't seem likely, and we've got nothing to back it up.
Sorry 0, retconjuration is reserved for the titans. The 4th arkentool-signamancy link was an old theory here before either of us joined these forums.0beron wrote:Well it's important to note that the 'Shoes being Signamancy aligned is *just* a theory. My theory in fact, which it seems the community has taken a liking to.
I do love that the 4thish post down on that link is by someone called "Ancient History."0beron wrote:WOW, that's impressive! Well I'm glad I also thought of it then, since I don't recognize any of those users, so the theory could have been lost forever!
Looking back got me wondering who is still around from the younger years of this forum. Of the names I vaguely recall having seen recently, Marbitchow, Bland, Ohberon, CelebrenIthil, gameboy, joosy, Dancing Cthulhu, Angband, Kriestor, Zilfallon, LTDave, Ansan Gotti, whispri, ftl, and Housellama all made accounts around the time the forum moved over here +/- a couple of months. I was definitely surprised you were not on that list, drache!drachefly wrote:I waited 2 years after the end of book 1 to sign up here? Huh.

Selexor wrote:Mmnh, I doubt it. Beside the fact that those are not 3D-rendered, Wanda's entire character motivation, her role in the plot, and everything she did during Book One and the buildup to it was, "I must find an Arkentool and claim it for my own." She knew specifically that she was going to, because Predictamancy said so. She was also the Chief Caster for Stanley, who was specifically hunting down the Arkentools, and Duty would have made sure she told him if she had one. Even if she didn't tell Stanley, her Duty to Parson would have made her tell him during the Last of the Last Stands in the Battle for Gobwin Knob.
Basically there is no way she'd be in possession of the Arkenshoes without someone knowing about it long before now. That's like Indiana Jones casually revealing that he was using the Ark of the Covenant as a coffee table this whole time and he's not sure what all the fuss is about.
