My son, many speak of the honor in war.
My preferred method is to wait until their back is turned, then impale them with a pike held by someone else.
Preferrably from a distance.

This is a normal werebeast. Usually they dont cause much trouble since the full moon only lasts a short while in dwarf fortress. Some werebeasts are really dangerous if they get the chance though, had a wereelephant once who managed to kill 7 dwarves, then it ran over my weapontraps and painted my entrance red.

Blue Dwarf has been happy lately. He did some !!science!! recently. He admired a fine forum post lately. He was enraged by a forum troll recently. He was upset by the delayed release of the new version of Dwarf Fortress lately. He took joy in planning a noble's death recently.

Though maybe that's the issue. The concept is just too simple for the dwarven mind to grasp!

Now a necromancer dwarf showed up in one of the immigrant waves and raised some corpses. I killed him and he was entombed, but the corpses keep reanimating. Any ideas?
I don't get it.. it's a "Wilderness" Saltwater marsh and it's more savage than any savage biomes I have embarked on earlier.

Perhaps there's a stealthy necromancer?

There were two others. Triple necros without any tower, but I managed to capture two of em and only lost a handful of haulers.
