So Ace Hardware said that Dollamancy was fabrication with the Motion element, right? An several people have speculated that either Dirtamancy or Changemancy are fabrication with the Matter element. So my question is, what would fabrication with the Life element be in your opinion?

    The three Life-only disciplines are Findamancy, Predictamancy, and Mathamancy. If the GMs are right about Predictamancer dictums, those may be the only pure Life golems.

    I was thinking more item creation. Like, what would a pure life magic fabricator produce? I imagine the bracer might count, but what would say life magic boots be like? I can conceive of matter boots giving a terrain bonus, or flaming kicks. And motion boots have spring action knives or rockets for flying in them. But what would life magic footwear be like?

    Sounds a lot like the farming the Hippiemancers do, doesn't it? Flower Power producing items (food) which reduce upkeep could be Life-Fabrication. Or items (drugs) that produce poisoning or confusion effects and so on.

    I know what you're aiming for, but I don't think it exists, or not exactly.

    Life itself is the Life fabrication, and only Erfworld can perform the magic, or at least so far. IPTSF 001

    It is what Maxwell tried to do with the Tinman, Lion, and Scarecrow, however, and it's what Isaac is hoping that Wanda can do for him.

    If it's alive, it isn't a golem.

    That's kinda a crucial distinction. My guess is that Predictamancers and possibly the other Hocus Pocus disciplines can influence units popping, but the result isn't a golem.

    I fanon that Life really means information. (This fits Hocus Pocus and Eyemancy very well, much better than my intuition of life does. Eye' involves getting, sending, or obscuring information over distance, hence the Motion. Hat Magic can transmit messages; Carny' can con people; dance-fighting transmits a beat that units can dance to, which is to say, instructions. Flower' can cause flaking, comparable to conning; Sign' is about reading visual data; and Date' is heavy on emotions.)

    So I'd expect an item that acquires or processes info without either a) scanning or affecting anything or anyone material (which would make it Hippie') or b) scanning or affecting anything at a distance (which would make it Eye'). The bracer is one; a Magic 8-ball (basic Predictions) and a Zelda-type compass (scan this hex for items) would be analogues. A Notice-me-not cloak could work (it's not Fool' and doesn't counter Look'; a seeker can tell you're in the hex, they just can't find your exact location). An amulet of insight, maybe.

    I was thinking also duds that are "tuned" to fate, the way Ace mentioned in his discussion about items affecting your Signamancy. Like a mask that is the fantasy equivalent of a super hero mask. Or the weapon that only the chosen one can wield. Or the pendant that summons the magic armor in the show Escaflowne.
