A Thinkagram is a Spell of the Thinkamancy Discipline.

Proposed Canon

Thinkagrams are a means of long distance communication between two or more Units. The Spell can be one-way or two-way. The Spell is cast by the Caster, who does not need to be the target. A floating, visual image of the target appears before the recipientErf-b1-p109Same-site.PNG, allowing other Units in the vicinity to observe the effect. Anything spoken by the target is heard by the recipient and other observers. If the two-way version is cast, an image of the recipient is displayed to the target and anyone observing the casting: anything spoken by the recipient is also heard by the target and observers.

For the duration of the Spell, the fingers of the Caster are held in a rectangle, index fingers to thumbs of opposite handErf-b1-p068Same-site.PNG, as a Director or Photographer might in a TV show. The image of the recipient appears in front of this rectangle.Erf-b1-p091Same-site.PNG

In addition to Thinkamancers, it is known that at least some Archons have the ability to cast Thinkagrams.Erf-b1-p068-p7Same-site.PNG

Unknown to non-Thinkamancers, (according to LIAB_Text_38) a Thinkagram was not one type of spell. There was a spectrum, from which a Thinkamancer would choose one or more bands to communicate within. In addition to normal thinkagrams, Thinkspace offers a more immersive type of thinkagram.


It is possible that the Arkendish gives Charlie the ability to cast Thinkagrams.
