Canon

Disbanding is an event that ends the existence of a Unit, the equivalent of unpopping for living units. The unit disappears without a trace, along with any non-magical equipment it may be wearing. Items not worn by the disbanded unit, magic items, and artifacts, are left behind.

A unit may be disbanded when:

  1. the Ruler chooses to disband the unit.Erf-b1-p072Same-site.PNG This is instantaneous and permanent.WB2014 Lord Crush - Part 4 It may be applied to any unit controlled by the ruler, wherever that unit is located. [citation needed]
  2. the unit is in the field when its ruler croaks without an heir.Erf-b1-p098bSame-site.PNG
  3. the unit, while under a Loyalty spell, refuses an order or otherwise acts in a disloyal manner.Erf-b1-p084aSame-site.PNG
  4. the unit's Ruler is unable to pay its upkeep cost, or a Barbarian unit is unable to pay its own cost.

Proposed Canon

Another method of disbanding: 5. A non-Caster unit enters a Portal to the Magic Kingdom.

"Disband" is used by the members of Erfworld as a curse word, somewhat akin to "damn" or "be damned". Examples include "Titans disband" in the Book 2 Text Update 6External.png.

Barbarian Warlords (and presumably Natural Ally Chiefs and Rulers of sides, as well) can set a predetermined Disbanding Order. This ensures that in the event of bankruptcy, the units lost due to unpaid upkeep are not random; low-priority or trouble units disband first rather than valuable or preferred units, those can be kept safe at the far end of the list.

Both instances of disbanding seen by a Ruler involved the ruler specifically stating that the unit is disbanded and clapping their hands IPTSF Text 69,WB2014 Lord Crush - Part 4. Both units unpopped in completely different ways however. Dunkin "folded in on himself and vanished with only a little thump", while the gwiffon seems to just vanish. This could be due to a lack of descriptive text in the gwiffon's case, or a form of signamancy for the ruler or side.

Leaving behind no body, Disbanded units can't be Uncroaked or Decrypted, similar to those whose body has been Destroyed.
