For myself, I'd have to go with Methylxanthimancer. Or possibly Chummymancer.

Methylxanthimancer? So you'd manipulate caffeinated beverages? Odd...

I'd go with snowmancer. Or chionomancer if you want something more... Greek. Huh. If they ever make a dedicated Erfworld forum, that might be a good screenname for me.

I was gonna say Discomancer! I think I'd be an Artamancer so I could draw these things faster.

Charmomancer? Enchantamancer? Who the heck dominates peepul in this comic? :smallannoyed:

Otherwise, probably a Croakamancer. *grins* I'm nasty that way.

Frosty Flake

Chummymancer? 'Cus they're all "Heya buddy!" and people are all "I like you, chummy 'ol pal!"

MinusInnocence
2007-01-05, 03:28 AM
I wonder if chummymancers are self-conscious about if people would normally be their friend, had they gone into another field.

Like Donald Trump.

I'd be a... ROMANCER.

Well, I'll be Enigmancer then.

hitogoroshi
2007-01-05, 05:40 PM
The best part is, the Erfworld people read this, so our ideas might be included, eh?
Myself, I'd be a Procrastimancer. I could magically convince people that it will be just ONE more day and theres no harm in waiting.
Or perhaps an Attentiondeficitdisordermancer, although I'd only get halfway through the name before I'd be like OH MY GOD LOOK AT THAT GUYS BITCHIN RIDE THATS AWESOME WHY CAN'T I HAVE THE POWER I WANT SOME CHOCHOLATE.

Actually, the magic system was pretty well fleshed out before the script was written. Many mancers to come, yet, but they're more or less all planned out.



Myself, I'd be a Procrastimancer.


You'd be a hit with the Tardy Elves. :smallsmile:

Just a nitpick/historical information: Ant(h)ropomany is actually a real practice. It involves divining the future by examining human entrails.

Mancamancer. Jack-of-all-trades, with a slight inclination toward metamagic, building new spells like Lego constructions.

Splodemancer! The power to make explosions. I mean, what problem can't be solved with liberal application of explosions?

I'd be a Cosmomancer. Travel at the speed of light, blow up foes with cosmic rays, lots of possibilities.

I hate to be unoriginal and say pyromancer (I am the Flame Master) so I will give Seli control of my brain for the duration of the post.

Beatamancer. The power of drumming is the best magic ever, and if you play it loud enough you can annoy your neighbors.

Allandaros
2007-01-07, 11:34 PM
Geekomancer. I could exert my powers through actual science, technobabble, geek references... and the fact that I'd be in a comic about a turn-based strategy game would mean that my very location would cause me to grow stronger with every instant.

I would not only control the world, but I'd have made so many Monty Python and Babylon 5 references that the readers would not fail to love me.

Azukar

I had mancamancer first, give it back!


I guess it must be some family or general cultural difference. I always said "splode" and "a splode" was always from badly translated things. Oh well.

More like a fumbled joke; I think "asplode" is Netspeak for a really big explosion? ... Could be, anyway

Madalin
2007-01-08, 03:50 AM
"A splode" comes from Homestar Runner.
Specifically, this Strong Bad E-mail (http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail94.html).

It's become so referenced though that not everyone knows where it's actually from.

It is indeed a reference to bad translation though.

Azukar
2007-01-08, 05:22 AM
As far as I'm concerned it's a recurring theme on Uncyclopedia, which makes it Netspeak in my books...

Setra
2007-01-08, 05:29 AM
By the way, if I were to answer this seriously..

Either a Chronomancer, or perhaps a Jehovamancer. All fear my wrath.

If I were to be Unoriginal, I'd go with Cryomancer, or Necromancer.

Otherwise I stick with Pervmancer.

I think I'd be an Artamancer so I could draw these things faster.

I may be wrong here, but in necromancer for example, the necro part comes fro the greek word "nekros" meaning dead or death or something, but the "mancer" part refers to were you draw power from, in short, a necro mancer draws power from the dead, so do you buy paintings and eat them if your an Artamancer. well not neccassaraly buy but you get it (i hope)

moving on, I would be a chocomancer! conjour up a lump of chocolaty goodnes anywhere *pats belly in a sickening way*

i also liked krytha's idea (snoozemancer- lots of lazy, lazy fun!:smallsmile: )

While I wouldn't mind being a pastamancer, I simply can't cook.

In reality I would most definitely be a tardy elf or tardy half-elf procrastimancer (and a high-level one at that).

Furin_Mirado
2007-01-09, 10:29 AM
I'll be an aeromancer because it would be awesome to fly around and summon gusts of wind to knock people around, hehe. Plus it may give me power over farts too which has its uses.

'manteia' is the root of mancer and it means divination. So necromancy is divining things by using the dead. It has come to mean power over the dead though. But if you find any other 'mancers' they are diviners too, such an oneiromancy which is divining from dreams.

Anyhow, in the vernacular, I'd be a juicymancer since you never know when you'll need a fruit beverage.

I don't know. I mostly stick with the greek meaning of "mancer", so I would be a...
Chronomancer? I predict the future by seeing the time!
Well, because that is so cheap I'd like to be a computomancer, then I could build a computer which could predict the future for me. That would save me a lot of divining, starring inside pools of water, crystal balls and all that, which is bad for your eyes, and use the time saved to play D&D.

Izodor
2007-01-10, 10:23 AM
Let's see... hmm... I think I would be... ehm .... maybe ehm...

Fortunamancer

I would wield words of power that would change destiny and would give me the power to bring luck to my allies and misfortune to my foes. I would learn the future by observing one's (miss)fortune.

Or maybe a bit stranger:

Lexomancer

With my lexomantic powers I would enforce law and justice. I would be an avatar of honour and a paragon for my people. Those we disobey law, fear the Lexomancer!

Mattarias, King.
2007-01-10, 10:50 PM
i'd be *dun dun duuun~*

Definitely a technomancer, that or a glitchmancer, something to control technology.

pyromancer would be cool.

Destro_Yersul
2007-01-12, 05:06 AM
Going with the common and gnerally accepted definition, I'd be a Chronomancer. How cool would it be to manipulate time? Failing that I'd be a Snackomancer. Free snacks! Wooo!

Storymancer.

Don't quite know what I would do- maybe be able to tell kick ass stories with sound and visual effects. But they would still be stories- words out of my mouth- not movies. Because stories are cooler.

Azukar
2007-01-15, 12:52 AM
Stories out of your mouth, 5teven? Maybe a Narratomancer would be better for you?

Plastic Brick Golems?
Just "brick golem" would do. Sounds more threatening too.

bonus: can be upgraded, altered to fit mission profiles, disassembled down to the core for easy transport, can seat passengers, can act in irregular webcomic.

Where-is-it-?-oh-I-could-have-sworn-it-was-here-just-a-moment-agomancer *phew*
More commonly known as misplacermancers^^

It's a hard job, but someone gotta do it.

Edit, not to mention, I get to tap into the unlimited power. Picture yourself fighting me, when poof, I throw of a misplacer spell, and you suddenly have misplaced your sword? What do you then eh? What do you do then?! (Well, considering I'm physically frail, you could probably beat me to a bloody pulp)

Other interesting powers is of course to divine into the S-dimension, or, as it also called, "the place where the other sock went".

I also have the power of random forgetfulness! It's part of my job description.

TheAnimal
2007-01-16, 09:48 AM
Come to think of it, I believe my current job would make me a datamancer: Much of what I do involves casting arcane computational incantations on huge blobs of raw numeric data to make them "speak" to psychology researchers.
It kind of resembles Sizemore Rockwell's job if you replace the cesspit with an incredibly complex experimental setup and the Crap Golems with actual useful results.

Premier
2007-01-16, 10:11 AM
Dudeomancer. I'd have telekinetic control over bowling balls, the ability to instill a relaxed, laid-back attitude in people and to make things happen by themselves, and knowledge of the secret White Russian potion.

Zeikz
2007-01-16, 08:00 PM
Regimancer. Control of all the kings in a standard medieval setting sounds fine to my limited, egotistical, and ultimately meaningless plans and plots furthering my own megalomania. :smallbiggrin:

Shadow of the Sun
2007-01-16, 08:52 PM
Another one for me, an Entropomancer. The ability to control, defy an all around screw with entropy. Which would, in turn, make me as powerful as a god.

By day, I'm a wordamancer.

By night, I'm a groanamancer. Which is to say that I divine the truth of things by telling bad jokes. And not by doing the other thing you were thinking of, necessarily.

See what I mean?

I like to think of myself as many diffrent kind of -mancers actually.

Genomancer (I'll let you guys figure this one out.)

Sinamancer

Hatemancer

Gameancer

And perhaps the greatest of them all

Smartancer.

Eva
2007-01-19, 01:01 AM
Persuadeamancer.

And after that also maybe thoughtsamancer. (Read minds... whatever word covers that.) Although maybe that would go along as part of the first one.

(I can't believe I'm posting here, because I really dislike Erfworld, but I'm bored.)

mport2004

This trumps everyone else's. Seriously, don't look unless you want to feel intense amounts of shame for not thinking of this and/or have your head explode from sheer awesomenimnity.

Explosiveruneamancer. One word. Don't stutter. I hope your head didn't just pop.

Woot Spitum

Likely "Timeamancer," in the Erfworld style.


Time-altering abilities across the board, with a focus on speeding myself and others up (as opposed to outright time travel, though that's good too).

Top 3 on my list would be

1>Chronomancer-Messing with time is the next best thing, or as the saying goes "I wish I knew what I know now, when I was younger...". Takes double meaning->manipulate time in reverse specifically with respect to your physical appearance but not your power, and manipulate time in reverse with respect to everything but yourself. Better than a cognamancer because you already know the answer to the question on the test, how to live forever, and where the bomb will be.

2>Cognamancer-Wish you knew what the answer to that test question was? Which wire should you cut? How to live forever? Better than a migramancer because you can just know how to make a teleportation grid (as long as it's possible) and alot of money in the process.

3>Migramancer-No more high gas prices or buying plane tickets.

EDIT: Somewhere in this list I should add Factomancer to the list-I want a pie, why not make one? Speaking of which... Mmmm danish, Mmmm forbidden doughnut, Mmmm invisible cola...

I would be a procrastimancer, but the local Procrastimancer Society apparently requires one to be a Master of Magic (procrastimancy) before becoming a licensed procrastimancer. I would be, but I never seem to have the time and energy to complete my pro gradu paper. :smallfrown:
I tried to talk to the Dean about that, and he agreed that in order to graduate, I just need to get a "round tuit". Now I've never heard of such a thing, and I'm positive it was not mentioned in Artifacts 101. :smallconfused: I told the Dean that I know this guy working at Kinko's everybody calls "that round twit" behind his back, but he just sighed and told me to quit joking.
I tried to ask my roommate about it (He's really smart; He says he's a Physics major because "he takes up time and space", but he seems to do a lot of Chemistry experiments too.), but he just told me that "none of you procrastimancy guys ever graduate anyway". Then he proceeded to subject himself to one of his "advanced experiments" in Chemistry and giggle uncontrollably.
Now where on Earth (or some other world maybe?) do I find this round tuit artifact? :smallconfused:

Actually, no. -mancy actually means "divination". Says so on the page you linked. Necromancy was originally contacting the dead to learn things/predict the future/etc, before fantasy turned it into zombies and such. For example, oneiromancy is divination via dreams, practiced by (among others) Joseph in the Bible.

My first thought was to be a pieromancer. But then I had to look at the pros and cons.

Pieromancers combine aspects of the piemancer, romancer, and punmancer. Because they are humormancers, they can easily move to slapstickmancers or pervomancers through the piemancer and romancer classes. However, they tend to be at odds with witomancers, such as sarcasmancers and ironimancers. As a bit of a sarcasmancer myself, I'm not sure I'd want that.

Do humormancers and witmancers fit into general artmancy? I understand that things like paintomancers and drawomancers fit in there...if humormancy is extended through this, a piemancer-artmancer could become a Pollockomancer. Now that I think about it, piemancy and punomancy allow for a little delving into circlemancy as well. These spellcasters are so intertwined with each other, aren't they?

Maybe a stitchomancer for erfworld would be talented...

But in real life, I'm afraid I'd probably be something like a hugmancer. Or a depressedomancer.

Ah, but I'm definately in the camp of Psi == Magic.

Both are equally fantastic; it's just that Psi tries to cloak itself in pseudoscience, so it's more readily accepted in loose sci-fi. In the end, both "powers" boil down to telling reality to "sit down and shut up" via force of will. The Psi user thinks the power is inborn and used by concentration, while the Magic user thinks that various symbols have power that can direct or manifest his will.

Erfworld is more likely to go with the Magic perspective than the Psi one, I think.

The default D&D rule is that anti-magic and anti-psi work on both power types... I tend to agree. As for Erfworld, my guess is that there probably aren't psi-types. It's been a deranged version of "classic fantasy" so far, at least.

Except that they don't always. A Mage Bane Sword will extra harm someone who uses Arcane spells and spell like abilities. A Psi-Bane will only do so to a guy with power points and psi-like abilities. That's kinda the essence of my rant. They are different types of magic (like the difference between Arcane and Divine), no doubt, but psionics appeals to me on some level.

I know this is a different world, but given the number of pop-culture references that pop up in this, how long before a Professor Xavier type who's a total Brainiticist (who's also the ship captain of the Enter-and-Win-aprise, or at has an identical twin who is)?

Mage bane sword? Bane weapons in D&D use creature type to determine whether they work or not. You could have a Humanoid (Human) bane weapon that would hurt human wizards, but it'd also hurt human fighters, while leaving elven wizards immune to the bane damage. I don't think there's any class-based equivalent, and with good reason; while a target has only one race, it may have multiple classes. Should a 10 Fighter / 1 Wizard have as much vulnerability to "Mage Bane" as an 11 Wizard?

Now, there are weapons that can screw with magic in various ways, and are thus useful against mage-types, but only if the term used is "arcane spell" would they be limited to affecting a mage's powers. If the term is just "spell", then it affects divine magic too, and if it targets all magic (anything designated as Spell-Like or Supernatural, including many abilities of non-spellcasters), then it would affect psionics too. It's a different format for using it, but psionics is the same thing as magic on a basic level.

*******
Pointless metaphor here:

Psicraft and Spellcraft are like different operating systems. Wizards code within the Spellcraft pardigm, while Clerics get a simplified system of Icons to handle the details for them within the Spell-OS. Psionicists are using a different coding language that only works within their system, and is generally more intuitive, but because they don't have removable media, they have limits on the total number of programs they know how to run. Some mages, Sorcerers in particular, imitate the Psi-OS from with the Spellcraft framework so they don't have to keep reinstalling the same programs each time they want to use them.

If some program attempts to modify or disable the program of another user, the limitations of what it can accomplish are determined by the method of it's attack. Some might just interfere with the Icon system used by divine casters, and since they can't handle code without the help of Icon, they are vulnerable to it. Some programs might insert errors into the code that are relatively simple to fix but take time to find, so the Wizards get screwed while the ease-of-use in the Icon system lets Clerics fix things quickly enough and run their programs normally. Sometimes a virus is written that can attack the Spellcraft or Psicraft operating systems at such a basic level that it screws things up for anyone on that format, but the virus may be unable to affect the OS it wasn't designed against. Sometimes, the power source is turned off, and then it really doesn't matter if you're using Psi-OS or Spell-OS... magic no work when you disconnect it's power.

Magebane is a weapon enhancement found in Complete Arcane. It functions as a Bane weapon against Arcane Spellcasters and things with Arcane Spell-like abililties (IOW, just about every creature with SLAs, except Psi-flavored ones and the Crypt Warden) Look it up here: http://www.crystalkeep.com/d20/rules/DnD3.5Index-MagicItems-WeaponsArmor.pdf

I know Erfworld is completely different, but given this messing up my tenuous graft on logic online, in addition to my love of psionics and the fact that I prefer being called "funny-name-icist" as opposed to "funny-name-mancer" leads me to want to be a Burninaticist. Also, Burninaticist I think rolls off the tongue better than Burninatomancer.

Ah yes, I had forgotten about that one. Well, it specifically targets arcane magic users, so even one spell of that sort is enough to screw you, although someone with a single arcane caster level could cast what they've got pretty quickly and be immune after that. The weapon property is caster-type specific so it's not too widely useful, but versions could easily be made for priestbane and psibane.

Getting back to the original topic of naming caster types, it was said that not all of them end in "-mancer". "Burninator" was my guess about the fire/evoker style casters, not Burninatomancer, because that would dilute the geek-reference value and sound clumsy rather than simplified. I was never suggesting that you should change your personal terminology, though I don't see psionics as being to likely to show up in Erf, as there's really no point in it. A side character that uses magic but emphatically refuses to call it magic (or to be referred to as a spellcaster) might be funny, but I think the story is already scripted, right?

ul, but versions could easily be made for priestbane and psibane.

Psibane weapons do exist. It's a +2 Psionic Enhancement (i.e.: mounted on psionic weapons, which have to be mounted on Crystal Weapons, which tend to be less effective than their metallic counterparts.

BTW, Magebane is useful for taking on high level monsters. Just about everything has Arcane SLAs.

Heh, I think we've totally managed to derail this topic.

So, what -mancer would the rest of you be, or if you care to make up new caster styles, go for that.

Lancermancer

Cancermancer

Chance..rmancer

I would clearly be Bureomancer, with specialities in landsurvey and cartography related tasks, I'm not finished until at least three different forms are all in order, stamped, signed and arrenged neatly with paperclip in upper left corner.

Pastamancer. Since Sauceror is not a viable choice. Disco Bandit and accordion thief come close behind.

Revlid

Chronomancer.
No, wait, that sounds far too sensible.
Conflomancer? Metallomancer? Umbramancer? Bah, too classical.

Tentaclemancer. That's better.

Death, your friend the Reaper

Deathmancy? Isn't that Croakamancy?

I'd go with either Procrastimancy, Pwnamancy, Legomancy (and I came up with the latter two completely on my own, thank you very much, _before_ reading this thread) or Turnamancy. I suppose, since time's measured in turns, that would be the term for a mancer of time: slowing down opponents, hasting allies, maybe prematurely ending an opponent's turn for some of the more powerful ones, etc.

well usually i'd say something like Mustilidaemancer i mean come no one can handle 1000 weasels climbing up thier pants and think about 1000 badgers. but maybe i could be and alpacamancer, Fear The Alpaca's Might

Peter Harris

Antsinthepantsamancer.

Oh snap! I totally thought of that as I was scrolling down. Props for getting there first, mi amigo - props.

I'd be a flashdancermancer.

Six pages and I didn't have the patience to scan all of them, but I'd most likely be an arbitrarimancer including the power to be perfectly random at any given time and getting away with it!

Charlybob
2007-03-13, 06:31 PM
Dunno, it'd be a choice between a few.

Culinaromancer - Summon up a sandwich whenever your hungry :D
Chronomancer - Go back and eat the sandwich you summoned again :D
Bedomancer - I'm lazy, so being able to make beds appear from nowhere would be a life dream come true. :D
Ninjamacer - Just because Ninjas > Pirates

DCR
2007-03-13, 08:30 PM
Nukimancer - Think of your own tagline.
Has nothing to do with fusion or fission. But it is all about magic. :)
Shkotmancy - Magic spy controller, specifically creating duplicates of the greatest Dubble O Shevin ever.

Innis Cabal

Food Golems would also be an interesting idea for this sort of class...

That would make for some interesting battles...

"Our weapons are ineffective!"

"Well then, let's just eat them!"

On the D and D site they have a free adventure outline that features a pastry golem. :smallsmile:

I'd be a Colormancer, with the power to turn everything I wanted any shade of burgundy, and MORE, all with a nudge of my hand. Fear me!

Repomancer: I'm in ur base, takin' ur phatz.
Drinkamancer: Able to summon water elementals , beer elementals, etc.
Windamancer: similar to the previous, known for dealing with flatulence elementals
Confusionist: master of the mental arts

That'd be like a legal version of a Kleptomancer, hmm?


Confusionist: master of the mental arts Confusion Say; You can lead horse to water, but you cannot make him wear swimsuit.

Confusion Say; The difference between a duck is that one of his legs are both the same.

Confusion Say; This statement is false.

I'd be an Electromancer. The power to cause eletrons to flow, or not, would give me plenty of chances for mischief...

Causing all lights to go green for me, always getting my number called out first at queues, etc. :smallbiggrin:

Moik
2007-03-15, 03:30 PM
I read all eight pages and didn't see a single claim to "Pimpamancer", so I call dibs. Failing that, Thundamancer for Electricity Evoker, or Boostamancer for Physical Adept.

Dirtamancer. Dirt is everywhere. A basically unlimited supply of minions right under your nose!

But kleptomancer is so alluring...

I've made a few cloth golems before, so I suppose I'd be a clothomancer. Just imagine a giant Raggedy Ann laying waste to Gobwin Knob!:smallamused:

The_Chilli_God
2007-03-16, 07:58 PM
Capsicumancer. He who wields the power of the peppery fruits. Powers include creating severe burning sensations and making such fruits pop up in places according to my whim.

And being the winner in every chilli cook-off I ever went to.

Ralfarius

Because the -mancer suffix seems to have been thoroughly explored, I will attempt to move in the direction of other casting names, as has been suggested earlier.

Bunjuror. Bread golems, hail of crutons, and hot rolls for all.

Perhaps a revoker; similar to the classic idea of an evoker wizard, but entirely in reverse!

Tolkien_Freak
2007-03-17, 01:42 PM
Linguamancer (sorry to steal Bisected8's idea, but it fits).

What would happen if you had a Golem golem? A golem made out of golems?

moleytov

Inversomancer. Anything I want does/becomes the complete opposite.

RowlieBowlie
2007-03-19, 05:55 AM
A hippymancer, to keep in character with the comic
Or maybe a mathomancer, numbers and magic are twisted beyond believes.
Or to finalise this summup a discussomancer, for using th power of the word to razzledazzle the oppoent into confusion would be a great skill indeed.

Luckmancy. You control your luck, you control everything.

Although deletionism also sounds fun for anyone going on a frag-fest.

Wardog
2007-04-11, 04:26 PM
My original choice was some sort of pyromancer type, which I imagined in Erf World would probably be a Blastomancer.

I am guessing the closest actual Erf magic would be shockmancy.

(I'm assuming this is shock as in lightning, which would be the next best thing after fire balls/blasts. Of course, it could be some other sort of shock).

Ultimatum479
2007-04-11, 06:00 PM
Turnamancy.
All I can say is, WTFPWNT!!! Was I right or was I right? :D

Imagine being able to not only control the NPC's but also the other Players around you...

El Leik Jou

Musicamancer!

Making everyone in the hearing range dance whenever you make music! Great for interrupting enemies from doing something. Bad when it interrupts friendlies.

Dirtomancy, whats better than having hundreds upon hundreds of soldiers that don't stop when one of its limbs fall off?

Think of the moral effect! The sound of booming feet, the sight of large giants, the smell of Feces!
