Only visitors are thieves - Bug?
« on: January 05, 2018, 09:26:33 pm »

Hi i'm playing the latest version.

The only visitors to my inn location have been thieves (about 20) and a few consorts (3) - this including three fiend bane spiders which linger in the main hallway entrance to my fort rather than join the merrymaking in the inn. No one has petitioned for citizenship since starting 2 game years ago.

Not a single solider, bard, poet or monster hunter yet despite having discovered the first cavern system.

Is this a bug?

So it no-one else getting this?

I'm playing with default settings as far as i know. I very occasionally get soldiers but they never petition for citizenship...

90 percent of my visitors are 'thieves'. I also get visitors which habitually destroy buildings and need to be cornered and killed by militia.

I seem to recall this issue being specific to Fortress Defense; the exact cause eludes me, but if I were you I'd try disabling it and generating a new world.

Its remained mostly the same in the current version, but if you enable visible caves you can see any hidden groups of item thief nations or small pockets of buggily mislocated refugee's.

Theives are just the default names of wanderer visitors from the [ITEM_THEIF] faction group like vampires, kobolds and nagas, specialised ones have the usual name. When your locations have been around a year or two and amassed a reputation for not having people mysteriously vanish, you might get some more typical visitors.
