In regard to eyebooks, is it worth adding that the instant message sounds are references to the signature sounds from classic Mac OS? I'm sure that the "EEP!" sound is the notorious "wild eep". [1]

[edit] Spell

Hey guys, let's give "spell" its own article. That's going to be a complicated one. Balder 17:25, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Okay, that'll be my next project. --Kreistor 01:54, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Classes

Ok, couldn't we assume that magic classes have natural enemies? Maybe enemies is too strong of a word, but you know.

Hocus Pocus - Naughtymancy Spookism - Hippiemancy Stuffamancy - Eyemancy Stagemancy - Clevermancy

[edit] New Table

I've condensed the old magic tables. I kept the old code below. Miment 04:22, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Real World References

Words that include: -mancy, -mancer, -mantic, -mantical (Greek: used as a suffix; divination, prophecy; to interpret signs so “practical” decisions can be made [related to -mania])

[edit] Clevermancy should have no X's

The comic shows it as having the same axis as Eyemancy, which is wrong. Check the Word of the Titans or the original post. [1] Miment 00:54, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Creation of the summoning spell

The wiki says:

Whether this scroll was created by linked casters or simple cooperation is unknown

while http://www.erfworld.com/book-2-archive/?px=%2F2010-12-24.png says:

they pulled off the link-up (...) Hubble (the Lookamancer in the link-up)

I'm new to this wiki. Can anyone clarify?

  • Presumably, the wiki part was added before it was clarified in the Text update. It should be updated. - No one in particular 19:03, 22 September 2012 (EDT)
  • I updated the relevant sections because someone made the assumption that all 4 casters mentioned were linked at once, when we do not in fact have confirmation of this, only that 4 were involved in the process. - 0beron 17:10, 21 January 2014 (CDT)
