considering it's similar to a pentagram magic would be my bet as well.


I also go off the fact that this is the Halloween Arc as well


that too
totally forgot this was the halloween arc

Maybe its less of a enchantment and more of a summon type spell. since it was in two places.

Yeah it could be a teleport spell of some kind that would make a lot of sense

but how did they get the symbol drawn inside the truck without first teleporting in there, which may require a symbol to already be there? unless it's a magical being that can teleport itself without the symbol but needs the symbol to teleport other things.

Whoa... I haven't seen you, in like, more than a year!

And that sign is probably something about the cosmic nerds.

It could be he/she used it as an escape (and to easily get the gold/artifacts out) rather then a way in and got in some other way (like being invisible or making him/her self small or something like that) and the one in the cave was drawn in advance.

or maybe someone drew the symbol in the truck before it left
an inside man perhaps?

Ah! magic symbols!
So we are actually going to deal with omnipotent beings, Kevin is going
to have a heart attack.

About the symbol; try this:
1# suspect draws symbol on back of cave.
2# before transport, suspect hides in one of the birdie-boxes.
Since these things are lifted by fork trucks no one would've
noticed the weight difference.
3# when inside truck, suspect draws another symbol on the inside
of the trailer and uses it to transport himself to the cave along
with the gold.

I think the symbol is for site-to-site teleport since its like, but not
exactly like, the normal five star "teleport to the spirits" symbol.
Or it could just be a serial mark, like a psycho leaving rose petals
over all his kills.

Post Re: ARC 46: The Case of The Aztec Gold
That was exactly what i was thinking when i said a summon-type spell.

Maybe the person/demi-god/demon/pet didn't even need to be in the crates, rather just in the car before the delivery.

plus. Gold is insanely high-security, so I doubt he'd be able to jump in a box full of it.

I meant one of the boxes not with gold,
and besides, if he can do transport magic, what about a simple mind illusion?

Post Re: ARC 46: The Case of The Aztec Gold
Well, I doubt they'd transport anything other than gold with gold, they take that stuff seriously.
wait. do we even know if it is gold?

But in theory, he would probably need runes on himself and the gold to make an illusion. although I guess i don't see any reason he couldn't do that.
it does seem like a tad to much work if you can put a rune there, hide in the caves to be sure no one see's you before hand and then wait for the stuff to teleport in. I think that would be easier and less risky.

It was stated here that there were 20 decoy crates full of paper being transported with the 10 boxes of gold.

and they're artifacts, but because of the arc title, we're assuming they're gold artifacts.

Post Re: ARC 46: The Case of The Aztec Gold
So... they could be wooden Inca Hoonka-Poonka statues?

I read through it again and have a question to ponder:
The decoy crates were said to have been scattered after the gold was stolen (I wouldn't know how
they found that out), this would mean that the person might not have been hiding inside the decoy......
Unless they're wrong...

Yay! A Ghost! So I guess It was the ghost directing someone or doing it him self depending on how much he can interact with the world. Also lol at the Turnaround stuff XD

Edit: Depending on how much is actually figured out about this case we might find out how well known magic is in this world among Pets and Humans since its most likely (I don't want to say for sure but I'm like 95% sure it is right now) the ghost (either directing some one or doing it himself or maybe possessing someone to do it for him) stealing the gold.

I do believe the gold is cursed now. Why can't ghosts ever just say hello? I mean, it's just common courtesy...

Okay, this was just awesome xD And that strange figure looks actually cute. It's the ghost of the animal Indian tribe that the gold belonged to. And now that they finally got it back, they probably put a curse on it.

Whoever touches it will make puns in everything they say.

Hence why a certain fox in the zoo speaks that way. HE found that gold!!

Anyway, an Aztec warrior ghost? I'm guessing this is a one arc appearance, but we'll see.

Huh? :|

In which I explain the admittedly obtuse joke: That arc was named, in its first few updates, as simply "Arc 42: ???" to avoid spoiling the plot. This is a tactic Rick employs often, for example today, in which the figure standing behind the dogs is credited as "???".

Um... who ever said the ghost stole the gold?! I hope you guys noticed your own words, but...
ITS A GHOST!, so why would it need strange symbols to get gold? And since its a ghost
(and probably immaterial) it wouldn't be able to hold anything, let alone gold, and if it used
the symbols to transport gold, how would it have gotten it out of the cave?
(and how would it have drawn the symbols with char in the first place?)
I think the ghost belongs to the gold, yes, but I don't think he stole it.
(last panel expression is priceless: "You kidd'n me?!")

Yay more of that Ghost/God/Whatever he is. lol at them trying to sound like bats XD clever yet stupid at the same time. Also I don't think we are actually going to know who did take the gold until Rick just tells us. (I'm slightly disappointed really) Unless it was the Trucker or the Banker or the ghost is controlling them (which looks unlikely) we have no other suspects.
