Suinomancy from 'sus'? Why not Porcomancy from 'porcus'? :D

Because the Latin word for pig was 'sus'. Porcus means 'piglet'. The change to pork was a later development of the Romance languages.

If every human who becomes a shade believes shades are afraid of pigs, every new shade becomes afraid of pigs. This could even be an explanation for why shades hate fire, spilled blood, etc.

The shades already existed. And given the name they already adhered to the Simple Rules.

So? The new shades obviously retain some things from their past. (MC’s mom shade never attacks her)

The new cognitive shadow’s Perception (capital P for a reason here) could easily influence how it acts.

That’s true but I think Oltux’s point is that there still needs to be an underlying cause since the first shades weren’t influenced by perception. And if the original shades were already bound by the rules, then why wouldn’t subsequent shades also be bound for whatever reason? I think their point was that it’s superfluous for perception to be a factor that perpetuates the 3 rules.

The Three Simple Rules seem to be opposite to the Intent of Ambition: fast movement, fire and blood
