Are we certain croakamancy deals just with "uncroaking"? I always assumed Wanda was more than capable of both "croaking" units, and "uncroaking" them. Of course, this might be due to the fact that Wanda is highly skilled in many if not most fields of magic, but I thought that "Croakamancy" entailed both uncroaking croaked units and harming/croaking living units. In a way, like Necromancy in non-Erf canon.

Can you provide any example of Wanda directly croaking living being? -- Muzzafar 04:14, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Aggro, when Wanda killed Jaclyn, and Jillian's escort when Jillian went to Parlay. 'scuse the sloppy link. --Xewleer 04:49, 5/5/09 (Central)
Yeah, but that was with prepared air defenses, we have no idea what classes or disciplines were involved. Commander I. Heartly Noah June 3 2009

What evidence is there that croakamancy can cause headaches? Wanda says she has a headache spell, but she is also skilled in many different fields of magic, as evidenced with the suggestion spell cast on Jillian. That seems to be Thinkamancy. --shadowrunner9 19:04, 3 May 2009 (EDT)

Element and Axis

Croakamancy is Naughtymancy, magic of Matter and Motion, the abscence of Life. It is aligned to the Fate axis. Thus Croakamancy uses Fate magic to animate (move) unliving Matter (bodies), imbuing them with enough Fate to operate semi-autonomously. Commander I. Heartly Noah June 3 2009

Subject to Uncroaking

I wonder if it's only intelligent units that can be uncroaked... I would have said "humanoid," but by proposed wiki definition, unipegataurs are "non-humanoid." Maybe it's just siege units or heavier units that can't be uncroaked. That said, an uncroaked dwagon would be cool.

removed speculation

"Due to the facts that Wanda had to retrieve the body of Manpower Erf-b1-p3Same-site.PNG and that she later said that Ossomer had to be captured (rather than be croaked and dragged over to her hex afterwardsErf-b2-p6Same-site.PNG) it is possible that moving a dead body from hex to hex causes it to be impossible to uncroak/decrypt."

Speculation no longer valid as stated in Inner Peace (Through Superior Firepower) – Episode 006:

The body of the scout would have depopped at dawn, had they not moved it out of the hex where it was croaked. Claimed as a boon for Goodminton, it would only decay a bit when they started their turn later in the morning. and later Wanda’s scout was the only of her uncroaked units to survive the battle -- 07:06, 29 November 2011 (EST)
