WTF?! My adventurer turned into a fish!?
« on: October 13, 2009, 03:26:09 am »

I was in travel mode at the edge of an ocean, and a random encounter occurred. At first, I thought that the only unusual thing about the encounter was that my adventurer was initially in water. But when I moved onto dry land, he started drowning. When I had a closer look, he had no skills and the body parts of a fish.

Has this happened to anyone else? Bug, feature, or Easter Egg?

Yes, the ocean was an evil biome.

Did you do any modding? Redundant creature entries have been known to, as they say in scientific communities, make crazy shit happen. Redundant creature entries being things such as two [CREATURE:DEER] or whatever.

Fish!? What the hell!? Either Toady Secretly updated the game, or something shat in your RAWS file.

You really think he's going to get a bunch of internet fame from something like this?

I probably would have moved on without giving a screen shot a second though.

Mind you, it would be a good idea if a bug report were to be forth coming.

To the dorf pulling the lever, the lever is just a lever. The magma pouring out of the mountainside is just a coincidence. To the dorf designing a pump stack from the magma sea, it is just that: a pump stack. No specific reason for it. It will never do anything.
for reasons best knows to themselves, the elves decided to explode

I had the same sort of thing happen to me a while ago after screwing around with Dwarf Companion.

Try Travelling-if you find yourself in a new body when you arrive, then we have the same bug.

That fact that you didn't sign up a week ago helps his case.

Actually, if you train Swimming and Magery to legendary levels, you may cast Polymorph Self while in the water. Maybe it's the case.

He he he.  Yeah, it almost looks done...  alas...  those who are in your teens, hold on until your twenties...  those in your twenties, your thirties...  others, cling to life as you are able...
It should be pretty fun though.
