Pity it's not contagious - you could use the babies as infection vectors to keep churning out skeletal soldiers.  On the plus side, if they survive you could put them in the military when they grow up to increase the ranks of your skeletal horde.

Current death count to infection (from FB rot because doctors won't do anything for babies or animals):
2 babies  :(
1 puppy
1 cat

Shame, because if the babies have military mothers they get used as meat shields.

EDIT: some of the miasma is also coming from a dog.  Bizarrely, only his paws are rotten.

EDIT 2: I just lost a dwarven baby to infection.  Not sure yet if it's from the FB rot or not.

EDIT 3: There goes another dwarven baby.

The animals probably walked through some contamination.  I'd double-check that there are no contaminants anywhere.  Someone could have washed some off near a well or water source.  I've seen this happen with pets and FB syndromes before.  Everyone is fine but suddenly I see some cats walking around with rotting feet on having stepped in a single-tile puddle of FB secretions.

Sounds like you have the best of all worlds with this syndrome - dwarf zombie army AND dead babies.

There's still time for a third stage of this beast sickness!  Anyone want to guess what it might be?

My guess? the numbness spreads to organs and they die slowly.

Is numbness actually fatal?

EDIT: This is from the DF Wiki page on symptoms:

Quote
Numbness

Effects: Creature will not be able to feel affected body parts. This makes pain a non-issue, but also hampers their use (I.E. Something with numb hands will find using weapons difficult, something who has a leg that's fallen asleep with have difficulty standing). Prolonged numbness will lead to permanent sensory nerve damage.


EDIT 2: All my zombies dwarves with complete body numbness show sensory nerve damage.

I have a feeling that it's going to be a long, painful life for them. They'll lose the sensation in limbs, then, slowly, their co-ordination will become terrible, making them much less useful in combat. Eventually, they will lose all function in the limbs. After that, it's anyone's guess  :-\

When they begin losing function the contagious stage of the infection begins. The dwarf will seek out highly-populated areas and curl up and die there. As his body rots, it will begin crumbling to dust. This dust will introduce the syndrome in all that inhale it.

Aw man, this sounds way cooler than my FB sickness. It only got three military dwarves, who started going numb and getting...

A FB just slaughtered by army, but It died eventually. It's blood causes kitten rot. For reals.
No dwarves are harmed at all, but all animals that pass through the area die. It's awesome.

I remember my first syndrome. It came from a Zinc Quadruped and caused severe bleeding as stage one.

No one survived to stage 2. Or the emergency sprint to the hospital, for that matter.
