[40d6] Dwarves shun their new elven king
« on: January 25, 2009, 12:21:30 pm »

When my king finally arrived I discovered he was an elf.  He didn't arrive with a consort or an adviser and I can't assign any rooms to him.

The savegame is here:

Known bug.  They're not shunning him, he's just not considered part of your civilization or some shit like that.

He'll probably ban the export of wood stuff or something similarly retarded :P

[0.34.11] Dwarves still shun their new elven king
« Reply #8 on: April 29, 2013, 02:12:06 pm »

Tried to register with Mantis but it doesn't seem to want to send a confirmation email.

Same issue persists. Dwarven King, when an Elf, cannot be assigned rooms. Also does not show preferences in bio like a Dwarf would.
Resurrecting this thread because there's no point in opening a new one for the same issue, and it shows how old the issue is.

Also... King is probably a vampire, like all Dwarven Kings.

This reminds me of a certain...

CACAME APEBALDED, THE IMMORTAL ONSLAUGHT, THE ELVEN KING OF THE DWARVES.

He finally died when there was nothing else to take and my axeman bled him out trying to steal his guts.
I walked off of the outer wall a few minutes later as the new King. I'm still baffled.

Same issue in 34.11 with a [Tame] goblin Queen and consort.  Can't assign rooms etc so they're just getting annoyed.

im hoping multiracial fortresses will be viable in the new version. Havent seen anything which I think confirms or denies for sure. Would be nice to have human adventurers retire in my dwarven fort (and vice versa) and be viable members (and vice versa).

Then ill want my humans to be able to produce large size stuff for themselves which im pretty sure wont be in for the next release.

Hopefully tho a non dwarven king should be able to be assigned a room.

Same here!  It would be cool to create a "human quarter" in a fortress, where the rooms are twice as large and the ceilings twice as high ;).

Elven King you say?

Use DFHack to make the game recognize him as a member of your civ. Thanks to his glitched state, if you can get the game to recognize him as a member of your civ he'll be the perfect king; no mandates, no demands, no snooty posturing. He'll be almost as happy to meet with emissaries in the booze stockpile as in his throne room (IIRC he'll still have good/bad thoughts from the usual stuff), and will generally wander around and make himself... present. Kind of like a child.

There's also the matter that elves are naturally faster than dwarves by quite a bit. This is why Cacame was so unutterably badass. If you can get your Elfking to don some steel, addy, even iron, he will quickly become one of the most lethal beings in your fortress. Elves use wood weapons for a reason; they'd be overpowered if they didn't. If you're already using DFhack, you can toy with it to add him to your military and give him a uniform. Gold crown optional.

This is all gathered from 40.d, but most of it should hold true in 34.11, though elves may be somewhat less OP. Still, a steel maul wielding elf is fearsome.

E: What is this elf kings name? Can you copy a look at the legends screen for this guy?
