0011719: A goblin knocked over a workshop and now my dwarves are killing each other
Not really sure what happened, but I think it must be a bug. I think this might be a loyalty cascade issue? All I can figure out is a Goblin Dancer knocked over a workshop, and now I have several dwarves fighting and killing each other and can't get them to stop.

Save from a few minutes before the fight started:

Save from after the fight began:

Not sure, tbh.
No tags attached.

The workshop was probably knocked over in a tantrum, and the offender probably also hit others in that tantrum fit, causing some of them to fight back, causing friends of the gobbo to "help" it, leading to a tantrum spiral.

It's probably a bug that these fights spiral away like that, and probably a bug that they escalate to lethal No Quarter fights.
