Yeah, I just expected the queen being a vampire to mean a large number of the home civ to be vampires as well. I'm going to start using some of them to explore the volcano as punishment.

First: Is this a bug, otherwise how the hell did he get away with it (was probably a dozen war dogs in the area too).

You do have somebody appointed to the position so that they can report the crime, right? If not, appoint one and you'll get 114 Report Crime jobs. If you do have one, appoint a different dwarf and see if that fixes it. They might not be willing to testify when the actual Sheriff is the vampire.

You might need a Hammerer as well.

Far as the war dogs go, yeah, that's sort of a bug since war animals and even pets don't recognize vampires draining their owners/civilians as hostile.

Eventually got like 4 reports over the course of 2 months, but the first sure took a while. Fortress survival is now guaranteed in the case of a bad siege since he's walled in for now.

I still think you should catapult him into the volcano.
