Canon

Croaking is the equivalent of death in Erfworld. Units which are croaked have zero hits and cannot be healed.

Bodies

Croaked units leave bodies, which exist as physical objects for a short time after croaking. Bodies disappear at the start of the next turn that their side has, unless moved/claimed (e.g. uncroaked, reanimated as golems, eaten, used for something else like the teddybearskin rug and mounted gwiffon head in Parson's room)Erf-b1-p035Same-site.PNG. In the event that their side is eliminated, unclaimed bodies disappear at the next nightfall.

Speculation

Some speculation exists as to whether burying a corpse counts as moving it, and whether a body thus moved remains to be uncroaked or decrypted.

Due to the facts that Wanda had to retrieve the body of Manpower Erf-b1-p3Same-site.PNG and later said that they had to capture Ossomer, rather then croak and drag the body over to GK's hex afterwardsErf-b2-p6Same-site.PNG, there is speculation that moving a dead body from hex to hex causes it to be impossible to uncroak/decrypt. The evidence either way is weak though as somebody was going to have to retrieve Manpower's body so it may as well have been Wanda who could uncroak it immediately; in Ossomer's case, Ansom wanted Ossomer alive to try and turn him, Wanda decided she wasn't going to bother and decrypted him instead.
