So to set the scene: evil tundra, everything reanimates. An undead yak attacked my dwarves and my militia commander, only trained dwarf here, had to deal with it. Problem: he got hit pretty hard in the leg and couldn't use it, so I needed a hospital early. He got put in the hospital, his wounds were dressed... but dwarves being dwarves, complications arrived. They couldn't give him something to drink because there was no water, but there was plenty of booze. Immobile on a cavern floor, he was dying of thirst because nobody would bloody feed him, which I didn't want because this guy had a hammer, combat experience, and was about to become a zombie. So I tried to move the hospital outside so he'd die outside instead of in... and then he got up and got something to drink himself because he wasn't in the hospital.

Hospitals almost killed the lazy scumbag.

1) It's part of the knowledge system. Doesn't do too much right now from a gameplay point of view, but basically historians, engineers and such think a lot, make discoveries, write books.

2) Copy your game then retire and open real Legends mode. You can't progress through 2 ages without anything happening.

3) Active seasons only apply to fortress mode gameplay as far as I can tell. The rest of the world attacks each other as it feels like and abstracts trade completely.
1) Good to know I'm not missing out on anything yet.

2) I tried what you suggested and it did not work. All recent world events are still unknown. Am I missing something to make all events visible?

3) I know that. I added the extra active season so I could get more frequent reports from the Outpost Liaison.

The world kinda sucks, though. 1 Dwarven civ, 2 Goblin civs, and 2 Kobold civs. Not even Elves to piss off.

How old is your world?
There's an option in Advanced Worldgen to hide Legends. Reveal all Historical Events, I think. Did you set that off by mistake?

So I was designating an image for an engraving and I found this in the historical figures list.

Three repeat entries of Mayors?

Dfhack auto assign chair/table/bed/etc. to mayor, I presume.

No, that DFHack feature doesn't assign nicknames, and that's a screenshot from the engraving screen, not the room assignment screen.

Is it possible those are mayors from previous forts in your world? They might have kept their nicknames.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

Ah well. I presumed it was data kept in historical units, much like autochop. Haven't actually had mayoral position in enough flux to have this to be an issue.

Your guess beats mine, I guess.

This is the first fort I have in this world though. I don't usually give dwarves nicknames either.

I once had dwarf traders with a barrel of Gremlin sweat for sale.

Just... who would harvest that? And why put it up for sale?

It must be a by-product of the gremlin labor camps. Several thousand gremlins pulling levers for the dwarves all day must make a lot of sweat.

I mean, you can't let good sweat go to waste.
