It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad Dwarf.
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:41:02 am »

I had a dwarf arrive in my latest migration wave, a wood burner. In the process of entering the fort, she managed to get into an argument with another migrant, went berserk, and started a brawl. I'm not sure if I need to put her in isolation or draft her into the military and watch the !!Fun!! that ensues once she gets her hands on steel arms and armor.

If she went literally berserk, you can't put her in the military, and she'll soon be ganged up on by the civilians.

Not berserk as in insane. She simply flew into a blind rage and started brawling within five seconds of entering the map. There have been no further outbursts thus far, but I'm keeping my eye on her.

Precision of language! "Berserk" is a specific term meaning a form of permanent violent insanity. I recommend avoiding any other use of the term.
