Class\Axis Erf Fate Numbers
Naughtymancy Shockmancy Croakamancy Retconjuration

Proposed Canon

Croakamancy is one of the three disciplines of the Magic class Naughtymancy; it is aligned with the axis of Fate.


  • Uncroaking deceased units.
  • Providing combat bonuses to uncroaked units.

You’re the one with the brains here. I’m wtcahnig for your posts.

Known Croakamancers

Wanda Firebaugh - Chief Croakamancer of Gobwin Knob. Previously a unit in the Kingdom of Faq.

Known Caster Links

So far the only known caster link involving Croakamancy was the uncroaking of the Gobwin Knob volcano which ended the Battle for Gobwin Knob. This required the linkup of a Dirtamancer (Sizemore Rockwell) and a Master Croakamancer (Wanda Firebaugh) by an experienced Thinkamancer (Maggie). Such a casting should not be expected to occur with any great frequency.


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.

It is likely that constructed units, such as golems, cannot be uncroaked.


With the Arkenpliers, Wanda is able to Decrypt units - to bring back the dead with all their abilities and most of their memories intact, but loyal to the caster and her side. Many casters believe this takes Croakamancy into the realm of Life magic, which is normally its antithesis. Many casters find this to be unnatural, and thus, wrong.
