Skin Ward used by Akka just as the demon grabs him at end of TTT.

That list is looking might fine H.

I still can't find that Imperial Saik one that Wilshire mentioned, I do recall one being named though, I think.
Hmm, I was thinking its in TTT post akka/esmi coitus when he takes on a bunch of Saik - 3 or 4? - and I belive its his POV reflecting on their ineffectual cants.

Also, does Inrau name his nifty 'super strong hands that punch really fast' cant?
One of the other conditions of possibility.

I think I found that part, but no named Cants there.

Inrau also just says some words and then does what he does, the cant is never named unfortunately.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasûrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

It must only be described then. Huh.

It has a nifty line about prayer from his lips and blasphemy from his mouth or something though, Damn I need to read that again, i can't mind it now, just mind it was great.

Similarly Akka speaks some 'words of death' or 'secret' or some such before the battle begins in the Serotic(sp?) Library. Unnamed though, IIRC.

Well hopefully this is enough for the moment. I'll be doing a re-read soon, just finishing the last book of Robin Hobb's Fitz and the Fool. Then will start with TDTCB, maybe even splash the cash to get the audibooks. So will be on the look out for names and pages.

For the purposes of our collection here, that's great.

For whatever reason, the reddit member seemed to imply that sourcing the page numbers was important to their goal.

My eBooks are all jacked up, so exact page numbers are almost impossible for me to discern now.

I can give approximate locations though, for sure.

Anagogic Cants:
Houlari Twin-Tempests (TTT, Chapter 3)
Dragonhead (TTT, Chapter 16)
Memkotic Furies (TTT, Chapter 16)
Gotaggan Scythes (TWP, Chapter 19)
Ramparts of Ur (TTT, Chapter 16)

Gnostic Cants:
Cants of Torment (TTT, Glossary)
Bar of Heaven (TWP, Chapter 4)
Mathesis Pin (TFS)
Thawa Ligatures (TTT, Chapter 1)
Cirroi Loom (TWP, Chapter 19; TGO, Chapter 13)
The Bisecting Planes of Mirseor (TWP, Chapter 12)
Ishra Discursia (TTT, Chapter 6)
Cant of Sideways Stepping (WLW, Chapter 1)
The Seventh Quyan Theorem (TWP, Chapter 12)
The Ellipses of Thosolankis (TWP, Chapter 12)
The Compass of Noshainrau (TJE, Chapter 3)
Weära Comb (TWP, Chapter 19)
Odaini Concussion Cant (TWP, Chapter 19)
Huiritic Ring (TJE, Chapter 16)
Surillic Point (TJE, Chapter 16)
Cant of Translocation (WLW, Chapter 13)
Noviratic Spike (WLW, Chapter 15)
The Ninth Merotic (TGO, Chapter 13)

Mbimayu Cants:
Iswazi Cant (WLW, Chapter 11)
Muzzû Chalice (TGO, Chapter 16)

On these wards, it's unclear if they are proper names or not.  Somtimes they are capitalized like they are, sometimes not:
reflexive Wards (TTT, Chapter 3)
Spherical Wards (TTT, Chapter 3)
Directional Wards (TTT, Chapter 16)
Encircling Wards (TTT, Chapter  16)
Portcullis (TTT, Chapter 16)

I'll find more later and refine this list to be alphabetical.

This awesome. Good work dude.

Not sure if it really counts but there is the bit in TWP where Achamian and Xinemus "walk the Shadow Path". I'm still not sure if that's magical or just a fancy way of saying no one saw them (the fact that they were walking amidst Cishaurim, combined with Xin's own recent blindness, make me lean toward some genuine metaphysical twist to it).
