Proposed Canon

Units that are croaked (killed) can be reanimated using Croakamancy to become "uncroaked" (undead).

Description

Uncroaked units have no will of their own, and limited intelligence. Uncroaked warlords are capable of following simple orders and leading troops.Erf-b1-p027-p6Same-site.PNG

Uncroaked Casters function as infantry.Erf-b1-p077aSame-site.PNG

Uncroaked units have their livery set by the caster who created them. The caster may elect to retain the unit's original livery, or match the livery to their own or an allied warlord's livery.

Uncroaked Warlords may remain Warlords (as did Manpower) or with less attention may become infantry (as did Sir Webinar). Uncroaked Warlords may normally lose levels when they are uncroaked.

Uncroaked units decay over time, and eventually fall apart. While they last, they are still capable of gaining experience and leveling up.Erf-b1-p055-p9Same-site.PNG

Plot

Stanley's limited forces have been supplemented by uncroaked infantry created by Croakamancer Wanda Firebaugh. In particular, Stanley's last living warlord (Manpower the Temporary) fell at the Battle of Warchalking, leaving him with only five (after Manpower's body was retrieved and uncroaked by Wanda) uncroaked warlords to lead his forces in the field.

Later, while Jillian Zamussels attempts to persuade Wanda to defect from Stanley, several unipegataurs and Archon Jaclyn are croaked, and then uncroaked. In addition, after a failed attempt by the Royal Crown Coalition to attack Gobwin Knob from its tunnels, at least 2870 fallen Jetstone troops, including warlords Sir Webinar and Dora, are uncroaked.

Stats

An uncroaked unit may or may not retain all of the abilities it had in life, for instance, uncroaked Jaclyn and several uncroaked unipegataurs were shown in flight,Erf-b1-p119-p8Same-site.PNG and an uncroaked warlord is still capable of functioning as a warlord; however, an uncroaked caster does not retain spellcasting abilities and functions as generic uncroaked infantry.Erf-b1-p077aSame-site.PNG

Units can be uncroaked en masse, but the resulting creations are weaker and decay more rapidly than ones that are animated with careful individual attention.Erf-b1-p116-p8Same-site.PNG

When lead into battle by a Croakamancer, uncroaked gain a "huge" bonus.Erf-b1-p084aSame-site.PNG

Uncroaked infantry, led by a master-class Croakamancer is capable of dance-fight.Erf-b1-p127Same-site.PNG

Re-croaking

When a croaked unit reaches zero hit points, or expires, they turn to dust.

Effect of Arkenpliers

Wanda, having attuned to the Arkenpliers, reanimated Prince Ansom and a lot of the fallen units of the RCC into Decrypteds,Erf-b1-p144Same-site.PNG giving them a different appearance than most Uncroaked. She was also able to animate unit types she couldn't uncroak previously.Erf-b1-p146-p8Same-site.PNG
