0006615: Game crashes on calendar trying to create adventurer
The game crashes after trying to create a new adventurer, gets past load screen fine.
I'm not sure how to reproduce with a fresh game, only crashed after a time with mine. Always does it now, haven't attempted to gen a new world just yet.
I created two adventurers before hand and they both died (first one I can't remember how he died but second was killed by zombies in a necro tower).
No tags attached.

Hm, it doesn't crash on my end. I have to note though that it is VERY, VERY SLOW

Yeah I'm not too sure whats going on, this only arose after two dead adventurers and I had to delete that world to remedy the issue, will update if I run into it again.

Oh wait, you had two adventurers already? I had only one.

Yeah mine came up on my third try around, first two went off without a hitch. I'm starting a new adventurer around now and will update when I reach my third.

I can confirm this. I retired an human adventurer in a dwarf site because I was hungry and would probably die. Then the game crashed just after the calendar screen when I tried to create another adventurer. It didn't crash, however, if I selected Fortress Mode.

Here's a save where the game persistently crashes for me partway through the calendar screen while trying to start an adventurer.

Before this, I'd made two dwarven adventurers. The first was lost in a crash where I got ambushed in an evil forest (The Jungles of Pus) and crashed before the local map was loaded up. The second adventurer was either in a crash or got killed by some undead boars in the same jungle, I can't remember.
