Raiment is clothing worn by units. It is created by [[Dollamancy]], of the natural variety as well as by [[Dollamancer]] [[spell]]s.

Proposed Canon

Raiment is clothing worn by units. It is created by Dollamancy, of the natural variety as well as by Dollamancer spells. A Dollamancer or a Unit with natural Dollamancy, like a Twoll, can design raiment. Every unit is popped with a single outfit of clothing, and must be provided additional raiment if they are to change clothes. Ken, a Dollamancer from the Magic Kingdom was responsible for Maggie's new raiment. It is possible that at least one of the Archons of Gobwin Knob has the ability as they all seem to have at least two raiments each (standard and sleepwear)

Raiment colors are frequently used to identify the units of a side. In the real world, uniforms and livery are generally associated with the heraldry of their ruling lord. In Erfworld, in addition to particular colors of raiment, units also often bear a device representing their Ruler, Chief Warlord, or Caster, depending on the circumstances of their creation. This device is called Livery.

Raiment District

Canon

The Raiment District is an area in the Magic Kingdom separated from Portal Park. IPTSF Text 21

Speculation

Since the Magic Kingdom is organized as a spoke and hub architecture, with each of the spokes separating the various wedges, it is possible that the Raiment District is in one of the wedges devoted to Dollamancy. Each of the wedges seems to have flora which is a particular colour, much like the Land of the Munchkins or the Land of the Quadlings in the Land of Oz. Current speculation is that the grey wedge is for Spookism which is the the class for the Dollamancy discipline. Since Ken is known to be found at times in the Magic Kingdom,LIAB Prologue 4 it is possible he lives in the same wedge, and frequents the Raiment District.

Known Raiment Designs

    • Classic: Gold/Yellow and Brown, w/Radish Livery
    • Ansom's Finest: Silver/White and Brown, w/Radish Livery

Livery

A Livery is a symbol of a particular Commander. When that commander creates units (via spell, such as Uncroaked, or via popping, the commander can choose the desired livery. When units pop at a city, the Ruler chooses the livery. Erf-b1.5-p025Same-site.PNG These are commonly referred to as crests, and sometimes as emblems.

Jenkins crest.png Sir Leeroy Jenkins - a pale yellow outline of a foot with a toe tag on a black field
Albert livery.png Prince Albert - a black circle, with three throwing knives arranged to form a letter A, in a white field

Speculation

Extra raiments are carried in the Unit's Inventory.

It's possible that certain raiments gives bonuses to certain stats, which would explain Wanda's constant change in clothing as she dresses for each specific occasion (be it a torturing, a battle, or a seduction). This may have been confirmed by Vinny's explanation of his and Jillian's "Grease" costumes as preparation for dance fighting.

Dollamancer Holly Shortcake wore a disguise; this is likely special raiment she made that had properties similar to a simple veil.

Real World References

The Jetstone radish may be a reference to Super Mario Bros. 2.

The Haggar Lighthouse is almost certainly a reference to Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina's logo

Transylvito's bat is strikingly similar to the Bacardi logo
