A nice "simulationally" way to level a character is to retire them as a hearthperson in a hamlet that is skirmishing with another site. Upon unretirement, they'll receive 2-3 lvls IIRC. And this will be detail in legends for your character's history as well.

There's probably the chance you get killed too. Havent done it too many times, tho, to see if this is the case.
Yeah, it’s quite possible that they’ll die. It’s also quite possible that they’ll kill a few people. I mean, it’s possible that they’ll die (or kill people) even if you settle them somewhere entirely peaceful, too, so I suppose it doesn’t really matter.

Retirements appear to consider extreme status conditions. That aside, fully hydrated, fed, well-rested units appear to retire in peaceful zones without incident. But then these are usually middle game units with level 9 defensive stats. I am unsure how the game manages that given the occasional demon is killed by wilderness creature in world gen.

An interesting 47.xx thing I noticed is leaders of bandit groups train discipline during combats, as I've seen them remark on their new skill gain. Their soldiers do not.

Hopefully discipline as skill is shifted over to formation retention when Toady does the military arc. As it is now, it occupies the territory +1/+2/+3 to fearlessness should have.

Post-47.xx, I've had to include a reaction to macro it, rather than have adventurer(s) join my fort with lvl zero discipline just to up-skill it.

A Forgotten Beast made home in fortress ruins, and spends its time stationary in a sideroom and "working" by repeatedly getting onto the ground and standing back up.




I suppose even huge deadly birds require physical exercise.

It happened with a tarantula FB in somebody else's adventure.
