Proposed Canon

"Look, there's a lot you can do in Dollamancy. It's fabrication with a motion element, right?" -Ace Hardware, LIAB Text 30

Abilities

  • Dollamantic Units

Can create non-living Units like: Scarecrow, Dolls, Molls, Cloth golems, Tchotchkes and Action figures. They can also heal these units and provides a Leadership bonus when leading them.

  • Motion Fabrication

Can create small nonmagical items, such as tools or baskets, Raiment (armor or clothes), or "accessories", magic items that make units stronger like: Items that can shoot Shockamancy bolts, Clothing that can protect against a limited number of Shockamancy bolts and Jetpacks which add to a unit's nimbleness allowing it to Fly and even drive without the unit will(Auto-pilot).

  • Item Evaluation

May be able to evaluate gear and identify its origins.LIAB Epilogue 03

Known Dollamancers

Speculation

  • Related to 'dressing up' units and buildings. Benefits other than aesthetic are unknown. May increase Loyalty of units?
  • May involve a 'Voodoo Doll' type of control that forces a unit to act against its own will.
  • Accessories are created by Dollamancy. These may be Magic Items, or may be mundane.
  • It may be possible for a Dollamancer to create Units from wood, like wooden horses or nutcrackers. Or wood Golems.
  • It might be possible to create a sort of golem construct for training, like a quintain, which can easily be salvaged after being defeated for experience.

Natural Dollamancy

  • Maggie said Twolls have a form of natural dollamacy, allowing them to construct some non-magical items such as Parson's breast plate.
  • Maggie also indicated Warlords and some casters have a form of natural dollamancy that allows them to create their own livery for their units. An example of this is when Wanda causes the units she mass-uncroaked during the siege of Gobwin Knob to appear wearing Parson's hamstard livery.
  • Some evidence suggests that dwagons practice a form of Natural Dollamancy as some seem to have armor and others do not. This armor is similar to that used by armored horses in Medieval conflicts.
