So I had a dwarf go into a secretive mood and demand cut gems, fiber cloth, silk cloth, boulders, blocks, and logs. I had at least a dozen of all those things, but for whatever reason he wasn't happy with that and went berserk.
Now his corpse is lying in the main hallway, even though all his stuff was long ago carted off and a coffin has been claimed for him. Forbade and reclaimed his corpse, no change. He'll probably rise as a violent ghost soon.
Wait a second... Toady mandates that we bury bodies to avoid ghosts but gives us no way to do so on occasion. He's a noble!
Anyway, I'm thinking I'll just atom-smash the corpse and then make a memorial slab, but for future reference, is it possible to do this properly?
