I think my Expedition leader hates the Diplomat
« on: December 21, 2011, 05:23:04 am »

every time the dworf caravan hauls around with loads of booze and the trades take place the EL runs to the outskirts of the map avoiding the liaison only stopping for the trade negotiations only when backed into a corner assigned a burrow or one interesting case lead the liaison into a herd of giant Capybara that promptly ate the liaison as my Expedition leader fled (the one that got the killing blow got a name) any explanation for this? the other caravans don't have this problem he is prompt ( as prompt as any dwarf i suppose)

Do you have a meeting zone defined?

Does your expedition leader have an office?

Preferably in a patio overlooking a pit of magma.

In older versions, nobles were all "lazy" - meaning that they avoided menial work, and tended to focus on their noble duties, as well as a whole lot of breaks.  More lately this seems to have been removed from most nobles, so now, if you want to make sure your nobles do their jobs, you pretty much need to turn all other labors off.  Also make sure that your nobles have their requirements met (like offices) or they are a lot less effective.

This was only true of the real nobles - the expedition leader is always a "working" dwarf, and the same has been true of the Mayor since the game first went 3D.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

Bad luck, maybe. Was the EL busy?
