So in my newest fortress, I uncover Mithril (got the Dig Deeper mod) within the first year. In the Spring, I get the message that my king has arrived, dressed as a peasant. I go to the noble screen, but he suspiciously isn't there. I then go and look for him on my unit screen. Instead of finding my dwarven noble, I find this disturbing image:
Thinking that this surely must be a mistake, I go to my civilization screen and look at my own civ. Sure enough, there he is, listed as my ruler:
And the weirdest thing about this is that my civilization is at war with the Elves. About 5 minutes before the King showed up, I beat the crap out of a massive Elf ambush.
I copied the region folder and then went and looked at the Legends and found out that my civ and his former civ were at war for many years, with the dwarves basically kicking the crap out of the elves for decades. In 90, the dwarves conquered his home city and placed a new dwarven governor in charge. Cacame was 7 at the time, and 5 years later, at the ripe old age of 12, he became a guard. Two years later, an elven attack injured his lower body and killed his wife (who was then eaten by the other elf). Two years after that, in 99, the dwarven king was killed in battle and somehow, Cacame became the leader of the civilization at the age of 16. I can only assume that his hatred of his other elves at eating his wife was so great that it impressed even the dwarves.
But now I'm stuck with a King who won't actually do anything, because he's considered "friendly" instead of a noble. All he's doing is hanging out at the edge of the map.
So am I pretty much doomed to have him go crazy shortly and lose my king?
