It's a reverse hostage situation, if you kill the snatchers they'll fill your fort with babies.

Winged Troll baby?... and its Husband!? What is a Winged troll baby, and why does it have a Husband? That's the question I need answered.

I assume the winged troll society practices arranged marriages...

Sounds to me like either 1.) snatchers do snatching runs and steal lots of babies at once before returning to base, or 2.) snatchers no longer return babies to base and just lug them around everywhere with them.  One thing is definitely for certain, however: those kidnapped babies should not be showing up on the units list!

I'm having this issue too.  I also have a Goblin Baby (Tame) on my own unit list, and it says it was born today... how did it get snatched so fast, and moved to my map, if that's the cause?

For what it's worth, I got a ton of refugee and invasion reports from my liason.  Maybe refugee babies are bugged somehow.

I have about 20 elven babies in my unit list.  and I can't get to them.  First the trees,  now they trolls me with their own babies.


I have invaders turned on, and I assume everyone else with Mystery Babies does, too.  Someone should turn off invaders, generate a new world, and see if it still happens.

Could it be that those babies show up instead of the caravan, because the world is not old enough yet to have adult traders?

When the king of the underground troll gang heard about the newly constructed fort in the Mountains of Sorrow, he grinned and gave a single command: "BABIFY!"

The entire content consists of senseless murder, a pile of faceless naked women and zero regard for human life in general, all in the service of the protagonist's base impulses. It is clearly a cry for help from a neglected, self absorbed and disempowered juvenile badly in need of affectionate guidance. What a sad, sad display.

No, too many babies, caravans don't bring 30 people with them at a time.

Has anyone found the babies on the map yet, or are they only listed on the unit screen?
